Featured Artist: Felt Away Designs

Today we’re featuring Ruth from Felt Away Designs. Ruth purchased a motorized doublewide Mad Batt’r last December so she could create beautiful blended batts for her fiber art.

Felt AwayDesigns is a business out of Howell, Michigan that crafts quality, one of a kind, handmade, and functional felted items. The owner and artist, Ruth Snyder, uses a variety of fibers, but mostly wool. At the center of her business is promoting local farmers, other entrepreneurs, and the fiber community. You can learn more about Ruth and see her beautiful designs at www.feltawaydesigns.com
