PRIZE is FREE WOOL of YOUR CHOICE!

I have some wool listed in my ETSY SHOP, but I can also make you a special custom combination of any wool/fiber that you may need for a project that you’d like to do. I have lots of wool that I don’t have listed for sale. Most are animal colors, but I do have bright colors if you need some of that as shown in the photo.

PRIZE ALSO INCLUDES: a CUSTOM MADE FELTING NEEDLE

This is the cutest needle great for doing fine details and smaller sculptures! The grip is so comfortable and gives your fingers a break with a different grasp than used with a regular needle. You’ll just love it!!

Check out the wool in my Etsy shop to pick your favorite and send me your entries.

  1. Don’t be shy! I know you’re out there reading my blog. You don’t have to have a perfect sculpture to enter. Anyone can enter and it’s free! We can all use more wool, right? Seeing your sculptures has inspired other people to start needle felting. Isn’t that a great influence that your work can have on people? If you have entered one of my contests,you can always enter again! I’ll be looking forward to seeing your creations!
    HAPPY FELTING!

  2. As soon as the things I ordered arrive, I’ll get right on my first felting creation; I can’t wait!

    Incidentally, how long is the contest open for? My husband and I are currently posted abroad and anything ordered from the states usually takes 2-3 weeks to arrive😦

  3. The contest will be for January so people will have plenty of time to make something, so you should be able to enter:)

  4. […] The Gourmet felted, designs by Gerry, is holding a needle felting contest and it looks like it will …. The rules:  Send your entries. Anything can be entered that is needle felted. You can enter a 3-D sculpture, a wool painting, a felted appliqué, felted beads, whatever you can think of felting. Be sure to get over there and think about what you’re going to felt so you can enter this contest. […]

  6. Hi Linda,
    Welcome to my blog! Thanks for posting my contest! I hope to see an entry from you! If you scroll down right under my felting contest, there is a new needle felted sheep tutorial that I just created. It can be made with or with out my needle felting sheep kit. Of course, my kit is fun because it has everything you need to make the sheep and bonus items of a mini hay bale, copper bell, and sparkle wool for snow.
    I also am in the current TEDDY BEAR REVIEW MAGAZINE, February issue. Three of my needle felted dogs are included in an article on Needle Felting. It is very exciting for me!

  7. Hi Gerry ,
    I´m definately going to participate in this contest and I´m going to enter my snowboard guy, since I know your needlefelted dogs are so much better than mine !! I´m sending him in an email !! Thanks for giving us the oppurtunity to take part in this fun contest “”

    Warm Regards,

  12. Hi Gerry,
    I found your contest through the craftgossip site. My questions are these..can a submitted item be something we have already created? And could an item for submission be an item we have created and sold? Obviously it would need to be an item we have photos of..but I just need clarification on the submission possibilities..thanks so much..
    Rachel

  13. Hi Rachel,
    Welcome to my blog! Have you been felting a long time?
    I don’t have a lot of rules and regulations. As long as YOU needle felted it, that’s fine. You can email your photos and a brief description to gfelted@verizon.net
