Contact Joi Rae Textiles for purchase

After studying textile design in both the USA and Finland, Jorie Johnson was introduced to the felt-making process in 1977 when she was first taught Scandinavian felt boot-making. She was immediately struck by felt's amazing properties and possibilities. Little did she know at the time that one day she'd be teaching a variety of traditional and contemporary feltmaking techniques to interested students in countries around the world. Through her book, Feltmaking Wool Magic, you will see that Jorie's approach to feltmaking is clearly creative as well as effective.
