Celebrating the Season of Plenty at Nome SchoolhouseIt’s finally autumn, and you know what that means…time to celebrate the harvest! What’s your favorite way to celebrate? Perhaps you decorate your home with cute little gourds or indulge in some delicious pumpkin pie (or a good ol’ pumpkin spice latte!)

My favorite harvest activity involves needle-felting (I know, what a surprise!).  After all, felting is the perfect fall-season craft. In particular, I love making felted versions of pumpkins, squash, and all those garden goodies. In other words, a cornucopia, also known as the horn of plenty!

The cornucopia is a time-honored symbol of the harvest’s (and life’s) blessings. I think it’s vital to invest our energy into moments of gratitude. Autumn can sometimes seem like a season of decay or loss, but traditionally speaking, it’s a celebration of good food, friendship, and a bit of magic.

All Inclusive Needle Felting Weekend with Teresa Perleberg at the Nome Schoolhouse | October 28-30, 2022So this year, I’ll be hosting an all-inclusive felting weekend where we’ll make our own bountiful cornucopias. Best of all, these never rot!

Cornucopias are to autumn what jack o’lanterns are to Halloween. The horn of plenty is an ancient symbol of the harvest bounty, while jack o’lanterns turn gourds into spooky lights. However, they both involve pumpkins, squashes, and other cold-weather vegetables. Delicious to eat, beautiful to look at!

Speaking of which, I’m hosting a pumpkin-felting class on October 3. Yes, this season is definitely “gourd-themed” at Nome Schoolhouse!

So, if you’d like to fall in love with felting all over again, come join us at Nome Schoolhouse October 28-30. Just as All Hallow’s Eve approaches, we’ll nourish our spirits with the art of needle-felting. If you’ve never attended a fiber arts retreat, you’re in for … well, a treat, not a trick! It is so important to take time to be mindful and rest our minds and bodies, especially during this season of transformation. Needle-felting just might cast a spell on you!

I’d love for you to join me as we celebrate our bountiful creativity and gratitude by felting a beautiful cornucopia.  Register here — spots will go quickly!

If you can’t attend, join us in spirit (pun intended) by becoming a member of my Needle Felting Academy. You’ll gain access to the Cornucopia course plus discounts on all sorts of needle-felting goodies like this starter kit. You could even craft a warm-season complement to the horn of plenty, such as this succulent collection.

What better time than Halloween to master the fiber arts? I hope to see you at the Nome Schoolhouse on the Hallow’d Weekend… or if not, tag me on Instagram with your fall creations!
