**To our participants: please do not attend this class if you have a cough, are sneezing, or have any other flu-like symptoms! We serve seniors and vulnerable populations in this space, and we want them to feel safe here. We can give you credit to attend another program or class. We have many other classes coming up and are planning on having Sunami back again soon.

We also want to reassure that we will set up so that there is space between participants to minimize close contact. Each person will have their own tools to use. And we still have hand sanitizer, anti-bacterial hand soap, and disinfectant wipes for people to use.

Thank you, everybody! We're excited to see you tomorrow**

Needle felting is a technique to make sculptures from wool using a barbed needle. In this meetup, we will have workshops to learn and enjoy needle felting. Beginners are welcome. Once you learn the basics, you can make dogs, cats, and whatever you like!

You will learn basic needle felting technique with wool.
You will make “maneki neko” (beckoning cat) or “kokeshi doll cat (rabbit, pig)”

This event is for ages 16 and over.
We will use barbed needles. We are not responsible for injury during the workshop.
All the materials will be provided.

Fee: $40 (materials included)
This is a special, discounted price that the artist is providing for us for this first workshop. Space is limited, so please register early. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required.

If you want to pay by card, cash, or check, please send private message to the organizer, to [masked], or call[masked]. Contact person: Erin Schmith and Masaki Fujimoto.

Instructor: Sunami Bjornson / Mini-Pup Creations
As a Husky parent, she has collected a lot of dog hair off and on, and wondered how she could use it. It was a few months after her first Husky had passed away when she decided to make his replica using his hair and wool by needle felting method. It was from her deep sadness of losing her dog. Years passed, and she has made a lot of Mini-Pups for her customers. Each time she put a lot of love and passion for the animals in the Mini-Pups.
