Bring your favorite tools and gadgets to share with the guild. Have you made a creative needle case holder? Have a favorite multi-tool? Something you use made for another purpose but is perfect for felting? You will learn something new, for sure. Also, bring any pieces that you have been working on that you want help with. Do you have a felting machine you don't know how to work? Bring that, too!
