Wooly Wednesday - Needle Felting Challenge

September 15, 2021

Are you ready for the next Shave 'Em to Save 'Em Fiber Challenge? Register for the Felted Friends Challenge today with expert needle felter and shepherdess Teresa Perleberg of Bear Creek Felting and The Nome Schoolhouse at


Get to know Teresa and her passion for wool and felting during this chat with Cindra Kerscher about the next challenge, which begins September 22. Teresa Perleberg has been raising a flock of sheep and teaching others the art of needle felting since 2006 and began designing and selling needle felting kits containing her own wool in 2008. She lives on a farm in North Dakota with 270 sheep including Romney, Cormo, BFL, Corriedale and CVM.

Teresa loves to make realistic needle felted animal sculptures that each have a unique personality all their own. The facial features and expressions are a very important part of what makes her sculptures special. Teresa opened an online Needle Felting Academy in 2017 where members have direct contact with her and access to a variety of video courses. Another unique aspect of Teresa's needle felting kits and supplies is that all the fiber is grown and processed in North Dakota at the Nome Schoolhouse, A Fiber Arts Center, where you can stay, meet the sheep, and learn all about fiber arts. Teresa and her business partner Chris also host a weekly EweTube show sharing their fiber art knowledge.
