Felt Workshop by Lily Liu in Paducah

Nuno-felted Scarf by Lily Liu

Lily Liu and Susan Sadow.

I belong to a group of fiber artists that meets monthly here in Paducah.  We have the obvious name of Paducah Fiber Artists.  We have a potluck, catch up with each other and then hold a show-and-tell.  It's a highlight for me and one of my favorite peeks is to see what Lily Liu has been up to lately.  Lily has a motto that she quotes often, "Make every minute count!"  Her free minutes are often filled with tedious folding or wrapping of small objects that she makes by the thousands and then assembles into a sculpture.  Or, she crochets weirdly wonderful necklaces out of dyed nylon fishing wire.  Then, there is all the felting she does.  As a mother of two lively boys, Lily certainly makes every minute count.

Lily is offering a workshop on felt!  Make every minute count and come learn from her!
