Hi I'm Reena,
My needle felting journey started when my sister gave me a needle. I was immediately addicted and became completely obsessed with this magical stabbing. I call it "Acupuncture for the Soul" as it's a mindful distraction from stress, anxiety and depression.
Nature inspires me. I love creating something from natural materials, especially when the fibre comes from my own flock. It’s a wonderful feeling to create something so tactile and emotionally charged and even better to see someone else achieve this. This is why I created a comprehensive course that takes a complete novice needle felter, through to an advanced level, with illusionary realism techniques with twelve adorable "Sleeping Aussie Babies".
Then there is the awesome "Fun Series" which walks everyone through the technique of creating a sturdy and charismatic toy. Each toy giving you a variation on the principle technique. Then there is the latest "Nitty Gritty Series" promising to address singular techniques and tasks, making it a very affordable solution to all of your questions about needle felting in my style.
I just love to share my experiences and encourage, inspire and empower you to find freedom through creation.
So let's start stabbing.

"When I was first looking into needle felting, it was all very overwhelming. Where to purchase needles, where to get wool and the biggest question, where to start. There were many projects and kits on the market but most of them were overseas and would end up costing twice as much as they were worth.
I ended up on a Facebook page and asked the usual newbie questions, where to buy wool, where to buy needles, are there any kits around. I received many answers pointing me to sites I’d already visited and decided they were not for me.
Finally I received a message from a lovely lady. She was helpful, very straight forward in her recommendations, her information and her advice. Her advice helped set me on my way in the felting world.
Her name is Reena Lee and she has become someone whom I look up to for her help, her vision, her kindness and her love for not only needle felting but most importantly her love and passion of the Australian animals and endangered animals worldwide.
I was lucky enough in my first conversations with Reena to ask a very timely question......Do you do kits? Luckily enough she was just putting together a kit for the Numbat and she was needing to trial it on someone. I quickly put my hand up and purchased my first needle felting kit.
As soon as it arrived I got stuck in. I quickly read through the instructions and quickly found that the instructions were not just the straight forward step by step instructions I was expecting but a collection of directions that helped direct you without telling exactly how to do it.
It allowed me to discover the wonders of how wool reacts, how to use my felting needles and also to make mistakes and fix them.
One of the first lines in the instruction manual was ‘The wool goes in the direction that you stab it.’ This is one of the best pieces of advice to give to a person new to needle felting, right next to ‘If you do break it (needle) then tools down until you find it. Cut open your sculpture immediately and retrieve it. The wound is easy to mend as needle felting is very forgiving.’
This very first kit set me on my wonderful travel through the world of needle felting and I haven’t looked back.
I still message Reena every now and then and ask advice which she is always willing to give. And her comments on posts on her Facebook pages encourages all to keep working, keep pushing and above all keep loving needles felting.
When asked where I started in needle felting I always say with a Numbat from a wonderful lady in WA, Australia, and I give them Reena Lee’s website.
The work Reena Lee has done for needle felting in Australia and worldwide is phenomenal because she has done it by bringing attention to the desperate problem we are facing with the endangered & extinct animals list growing in her wonderfully confronting sculptures.
Her love of animals and needle felting has allowed her to champion these critically endangered animals with her range of needle felting kits. her sleepy baby series brings these animals into the living rooms of everyday people and helps them to become aware of the problem we are facing.
All I can say is thank you Reena Lee.
Yours in Felting"
