Tools

For me, the tools an artist uses to create their art are as important as the final piece. But the journey of experimentation and discovery is also very important.
If you are a beginner in the fiber world you can choose to jump right to these tools and brands and save yourself a headache. 

There are many other options of tools and brands that you can try besides these, but after 5 years of trying different things, I decided that these are my favorite and I wanted to share them with you.

The Punch needle

I am a maker by nature, so when I couldn’t find the right punch needle for what I wanted to create, I decided to make it myself.
There are tons of punch needles in the market now that you can try and choose from.
For me, the 3mm needle has been my best friend for the past 4 years and I don't see myself using any other needle ever.

Drum Carder

If your intention is to create gradients of fiber or to blend fibers, you will need a Drum Carder.
And when you start your research for the drum of your dreams you will be very frustrated with the prices. I WAS!
But I kept looking and I found an amazing brand, that sells great quality drums for half the market price!
for me this was a treasure found, so I wanted to share them with you.
I got the biggest one, but they have all the sizes!
