Cathy Disbrow is a fibre artist who creates unique needle felted creations. She sculpts and paints her art by connecting wool fibers: whether it’s stabbing wool with a felting needle OR using hot water and agitation. She’s been an artist her entire life working in craft, digital art, and hand drawn illustrations. She loves working with wool because it’s organic, making each creation unique.

Cathy started needle felting back in 2014 and been teaching felting classes and workshops since March 2017. She loves to talk about needle felting and all things felting. She’s energetic and passionate about what she does. She enjoys spreading the love of needle felting through workshops and do-it-yourself craft kits.
