Needle felting is the oldest known textile. While you might not automatically think of the internet as a friend to this ancient craft, you’d be surprised by how much your needle felting projects would benefit from some time with technology.

From Etsy to Pinterest, there are so many ways to use social media and the internet to enhance your projects or use your needle felting skills to make extra cash! Here are five online resources to use for your next significant needle felting endeavor.

Blogs

Our blog is full of amazing projects, tips and tricks, and resources for you to keep learning and growing.

YouTube

YouTube might well be on its way to replacing college as we know it! Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but when it comes to learning new things, YouTube is the perfect place to start.
