New to Needle Felting?

The beginner Needle Felting Kits are perfect to get you started on your felting journey.  The kits include all the materials you need plus easy to follow instructions for every step, even if you have never even heard of needle felting before.

Fantastic item – I started working on my hippo kit the night it arrived! The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and my family is impressed by how hippo-like my hippo looks! Thank you for this great first introduction to my new favorite craft.

The directions are clear with lovely pictures, and all of the contents are very well organized and of good quality. Great beginner project.


This was my first Needle Felting project and it turned out great! Everything I needed to create the rabbit. Good instructions and plenty of wool to work with. Very happy and money well spent!!


Looking for more personal guidance and video tutorials?

Find the encouragement, motivation and knowledge you need to create amazing sculptures.

I have known about Bear Creek for several years now and purchased a single class online to make a bunny. She was fun and I enjoyed the class very much. When I saw Teresa’s work I was completely taken with it, and I wanted to know more about her methods. I had done some needle felting projects and even taught some classes at the local community college, but this was beyond what I felt my skills were at that point.
When the Needle Felting Academy became available, I was very excited to sign up! I purchased six or more kits and began felting with excitement!!! I loved the Academy so much that I have now signed up for an annual membership. You might say I am hooked. I can pose a question or send an email and I get a response very quickly. I am in love with the materials, and want more. If you want a wonderful experience with no pressure and lots of fun learning, this is a great place to be!!! Online learning with a personal touch. I love it!!!

For 4 months I joined the academy on a month-by month membership. I just upgraded to the annual. I am already seeing great savings on my orders, and don’t feel as rushed to finish projects before the month is out. I like the fact that I can ask any questions for ongoing projects at any time and Teresa will address it.


I am very new to needle felting. I stumbled on Bear Creek Felting academy through a “google “ search. I signed up for the year. I have only been a member since January or February. In just that short time I have learned so much. Teresa is very easy to understand and goes at the pace—that (being a beginner I can learn what she is teaching). I would recommend this academy to anyone just starting out in needle felting

Joining Teresa’s needle felting academy is a great investment and learning tool. Her clear instructions, coupled with great pictures of her sweet wool creatures, make it easy for beginners, like me, to be successful in our felting endeavors. Recently, I purchased the Dragon Kit and was amazed at all that came with it…2 felting needles, foam, written instructions with pictures, lovely colored wool and a set of glass eyes. With 5 projects now completed and searching for my 6th, it’s safe to say, I’m enjoying every minute of my new felting journey at Bear Creek Needle Felting Academy.
