Note: I always bring my Wearable Art, results of my Felting work: felted garments, coats, shawls, scarves, pins, tops and more to my shows. It is the best place to buy them as all my work is individually created “made in the USA” , right here for you to enjoy. ALL of my items are “one off” creations, never to be repeated as this is the original artisan felting and sewing done for centuries past. All lovingly created art wear. Contact me if you cannot visit my art shows for more information, thanks, Kali Basi
