Inspiring creativity since 2013
Welcome to Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts. I’m Sandy; a half Welsh Yorkshire lass living in Lincolnshire with my family. I love Yorkshire Tea, my dog and all things woolly and, am also the creator and designer award winning needle felting kits, tutorials, workshops and my own handmade collection.
My mum, the child of a ‘make do and mend’ generation was always making something – the old Singer sewing machine could often be heard pedalling away on the upstairs landing (not as romantic as it sounds) – and I guess it rubbed off on me. In 2013 I discovered needle felting and have I never looked back! My turn to pass it on…
Is needle felting for me?
Do you want to try a wonderfully addictive craft that has no limits, perfect for absolute beginners and beyond?
Are you a first time crafter who’s really nervous of trying something new, but yearning to unlock your creativity and be inspired?
Do you enjoy a laid-back approach to crafts?
Are you looking for an affordable, no fuss, no sew craft or, craving creative ‘me’ time away from the noise and stresses of daily life?
If your answer was yes to any of the above then needle felting is for you. All you really need is enthusiasm!
Why needle felting has taken the craft world by storm?
You need just one thing; enthusiasm!
- No tricky patterns.
- No sewing.
- No wires.
- No expensive fancy equipment.
You don’t have to be artistic or creative…
…and all you need is enthusiasm and a little time.
It is incredibly portable, light and requires very little space; just a needle felting kit of your own or, a stash of wool, foam pad, a felting needle and you are good to go.
Needle Felting Kits
Every single kit is designed with love, care and thought. Attention is paid to even the smallest of details; where eyes need to be sewn on (that’s as ‘sewy’ as it gets) I even pop in a mini sewing kit with needle, so you (or the recipient) doesn’t need to find one. Instructions are very detailed and designed to guide you, step by creative step. In addition, you will find my beginners series of video tutorials on YouTube , so now you can felt along with me workshop style. All you have to do is open the box and get started.

The wool used in all of the Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts needle felting kits is of the highest quality, personally used and picked by myself from independent, family run British businesses. Any Merino wool is ethically and carefully sourced from non mulesed sheep. Vegetarian and organic wool needle felting kits are also available.
Wherever possible, I use recycled materials and packaging. Not quite zero plastic but almost, and the little we do use is recycled and recyclable.
