Check Out What Our Members Are Creating! 

We’ve helped over 10,000 crafters develop their needle-felting craft – what will you create?

Over the years, I developed my felting techniques, and grew my flock to 300 sheep and counting, providing top-quality wool for my felting projects. 

In 2008 I started selling my creations, teaching local felting classes, and even creating beginner supply kits. 

As I heard so many crafters asking questions and craving a sense of community, I decided in 2017 to create the Bear Creek Needle Felting Academy. This membership suits all skill levels of felting, and offers a sense of community. I am personally in the community feed every single day providing feedback and answering questions. 

I hope you’ll join us in the Bear Creek Needle Felting Academy.

Teresa Perleberg


I created the Bear Creek Needle Felting Academy to serve as a collective to share felting techniques while also offering a community for needle felters all over the world. 

My passion for wool began when my daughter and I decided it was our favorite to use for knitting. We then purchased a small flock of Romney sheep with the intent of learning to spin our own wool yarn. Shortly after purchasing the flock, I was introduced to needle felting, and my journey continued from there.


What Our Members Have To Say

“I joined the Bear Creek Needle Felting Academy a month ago and am amazed at what I have learned. I started needle felting two years ago and the critters that I have made have pleased me and brought a smile to family and friends. But I recognize that I need to advance skill-wise and for that reason, I joined the Academy. In taking one course, I learned how to use armatures for legs and the benefits and process of incorporating wet felting into my work. I also discovered a variety of tips, such as not waiting until the last step to place eyes. I am excited about upcoming projects that Teresa has suggested and appreciate her responsiveness when I have questions.”

“My experience as an academy member has been very very good. I find the tips helpful. I especially appreciate that I can go and watch a portion or lesson several times. My projects continue to need some refinement. I would not be improving if not for the opportunity the academy provides. I strongly recommend this learning opportunity for any level.”
Patty Marquardt

“Teresa, I have just finished your Elephant course. I can’t tell you how much I have learned watching and listening to you in your videos. Prior to joining your Needle Felting Academy, I was felting simple animals such as penguins and bears that looked more like children’s toys.  Being able to rewind and replay the videos has allowed me to felt to such an incredible anatomical detail that my elephant looks like a statue!  I can’t wait to start my next project with you!  I am so glad I found your website!”
Lisa Parisi

“The tutorials are unparalleled! She breaks every step down and demonstrates it. If you have to stop the tutorial, it is very simple to pick up where you left off. My end product is getting better as I practice. I watch her video each time I make the woolen creatures and see something more that builds on my learning.

The Romney wool I’ve bought from Bear Creek is easier to use than the wool bought from a couple of other places.”
