"Christmas" in July

Despite being mid-summer we feel you can never start too early for Christmas – so we are bringing you Christmas in July and we start the month making felt holly leaves with the help of the very creative felting specialist, Gillian Harris of Gilliangladrag fame.  Gillian also talks you through needlefelting as well as how to make wet felt berries – so three workshops in one! Watch Now+

Keep an eye out through the month as we have other great Christmas videos for you
