Tonight I started my 2D bunny. My kit had arrived, I watched the videos all the way through first, which honestly I've never done. I usually watch and do my own interpretation all at the same time. Sara makes it look so easy and effortless. I thought ok I'm going to do this on my own without following along. I'm an experienced felter, right? NOT!! Made it two minutes, which means I basically could make the outline of the bunny without help. Wow such talent I have! Lol. So I got the background and the bunny body done and decided to wait til tomorrow night for the rest. Right now I need a drink and some perspective. So I brought it with me to get a drink and guess what? When you are more than 18 inches away from your work and have had an Irish mule to calm your nerves, things look better than you might think! Not sure if the drink or the distance gave me more perspective but it did make one thing very clear....Sara you are an amazing talent! Thank you so much for Sharing and teaching us (ok me) that art is more than the final product or piece. It's about the journey, the humor (thanks Milo), the sense of peace we feel when doing what we love, but most of all its the camaraderie we feel when felting along. Seeing everyone do similar things while following along and then sharing them makes us feel connected. We all struggled along together. Felting for most of us is solitary, except when you are there with us with your talent, tips, and tricks on your videos. Thank you to the whole Sarafina Team. And to you Sara, Bravo! -- Kelly G.
I'm fortunate to live close enough to frequent Sara's shop. The genuine thoughtfulness and integrity of her leadership have not gone unnoticed by me. I'm no business woman, but i think there is a lovely and intelligent spirit about her shop that could be a model for any business large or small. I'm impressed by the thought she puts into her business decisions and their environmental as well as human impact. Wish more business owners would do the same but as consumers there are things we can do as well. Having said all that, I learn so much by the posts and comments of each of you. You have encouraged and shared generously. Thank you! -Chris

Sara, I love the fox. He is sitting regally on my mantle watching over everyone. And the ability to change his position into sitting, sleeping, running, etc...is really cool. Thank you for a wonderful piece. – Hellen

LOVED this fox kit. The materials were beautiful and abundant. The video tutorial was clear and precise. My 12-year-old received the kit for Christmas from her older sisters and we made it together. We are both thrilled with the results and she plays with it daily. Thank you. A good value. A beautiful project.
Everything I buy from Sarafina felts fabulously! - Bonnie
This was my first attempt at building an armatured animal. The tutorials are excellent and there was ample wool in the pack to redo some of the areas I was unhappy with. Have just started my second mouse at it is going very well. The service and product value from this vendor is unsurpassed. - Cindy
