Get to Know . . . Diane Fleckenstein

2467855
What is your name and what is your business name?
My name is Diane Fleckenstein, the name of my business is Crafters Haven and my website is Create with Felt.

How long have you been an artist and how did you get started?
I have been crafting since I was a teen. I use to make my own clothes, but over the years I have widened my crafting experience. I always like to learn something new. There isn’t anything I haven’t tried. I love making things for family and friends for gifts.

Explain a little bit about your process.
Today my creativity has brought me to another level – needle felting with wool, yarns and all kinds of fiber, either by knitting with wool then felting it, or creating my own fabric with wool rovings and wet felting it into a one of a kind piece of art.

I also love to upcycle wool sweaters into a one-of-a-kind bag or pillow.

What’s the comment heard most often about your art?
How talented and creative I am.

What is one thing people find surprising in how your art is created?
Some people do not even know what needle felting is. I explain to them the process of using wool rovings, yarns and fibers to create my art with barb needles or a felting machine.

What’s the one tool you couldn’t live without, in creating your art?
Wool, yarns, barb needles and a felting machine.

How has your art changed over time?
I don’t think it has changed, but there is a lot of information out there on how to create fantastic art with needle felting.

What’s your favorite part of making your pieces? Least favorite?
I think my favorite part is laying out my wool rovings and adding yarns and embellishments to my creations. It just brings it to a whole other level.

My least favorite is trying to decide what to make next, too many ideas in my head.

What’s your dream project?
Creating a picture art with wool with embellishments, beads and hand embroidery.

Where is your art available for purchase?
My pieces are available on my web site: Create with Felt and on Etsy at DeesTees.

I also will be doing some local shows in 2013.
