exciting changes at The Needle

Hi everyone! I'm Felicia from Fluffy Flowers. A couple of days ago Chickenpants Claire posted the big announcement about her new baby chickenpants and the changing of hands here at The Needle. I hope to do right by Ms. C-pants and the website and promise to do my best to make her and you all proud.

So what's in store for the future? A lot. Here are some ideas I've got in the hopper:

- Create an ongoing, comprehensive list of Handmade Plush Shows (galleries, museums, shopping)

- Develop an extensive list of plush making resources

- Establish regular features such as: Tutorials, Book reviews, In Your Studio, WIPs, Vintage Handmade Plush

- Begin a weekly plush discussion question such as: Art or craft? Do you write stories to accompany your Plush? Best way to stuff tight corners? etc.

- Run more contests with prizes!

- Set up a Facebook feed

- Create a FAQ i.e. what is art plush?

- Give blog a makeover

- plus, a whole bunch more!

Sound exciting? Yeah, I think so too. Got other ideas? Want to get involved in this groovy Needle growth and expansion? Drop me an email at

Can't wait to hear your thoughts and ideas!
