Hello and thank you for visiting. My name is Michele, and I have MS. I love to be creative, and I use my creativity to help me deal with my health. I’m particularly interested in textile techniques, including felt making, hand embroidery, free motion machine embroidery, patchwork and quilting. I enjoy learning new techniques and sharing what I know. I’ve called my blog The Thread Shed Studio because I was lucky enough to have a studio shed built for me in my garden in 2014, for my 50th birthday. That’s where I go to play, and make all sorts of stuff that may be art.

  1. Congratulations on your drum carder.
    I got mine 2 years ago and I’ve had such fun with all colours and fibres. You’ll find that you become very popular when the word gets out. I’ve processed fleece for people for a contribution to charity but I’m sure it will be possible to make an income from it.
    If I can give you a small piece of advice it would be to always inspect any fleece before you take the job. Not everyone appreciates that a drum carder doesn’t make it possible to card any old part of the fleece.
