About Bear Creek

Welcome to Bear Creek! My name is Teresa Perleberg and I live on a farm in North Dakota with my family where we have a flock of 100 sheep. I use their wool to make animal sculptures using the art of needle felting. I have designed kits to help others learn this art as well. I also offer courses and personal instruction within my online Needle Felting Academy. I would love to help you get started or advance your needle felting skills!

I purchased 3 kits from Bear Creek and had a blast doing them! the instructions were easy to follow even for me, someone who has never done needle felting before!! I purchased the pumpkin, black sheep and the dragon kits and all were fun and easy to do! highly recommended!!!
