We Love Needle Felting (& New Staff Members)!

We recently attended the ASTRA (American Specialty Toy Retailing Association) show in Phoenix, AZ, where we debuted our new and improved line to some of our favorite store buyers.  It was so fun seeing everyone’s reaction to our new packaging and kit improvements.  We got a lot of big thumbs up!  We were able to participate in a Kit Session, where buyers could sit down and try out our Needle Felting Kit.  It was a huge hit!  But because of the limited time of the session, we were left with many half-finished canvases.

So on Monday we had a big needle felting party with most of our production staff, plus our brand new Admin & Sales Assistant, Anna Lee!

Anna Lee will be providing some much needed office management and sales assistance as we continue to grow in 2014.  We’re thrilled to welcome her to our team.  Here she is with one of our outstanding production assistants, Juliana:
