Felting Machine- Review & Giveaway

I don’t knit and I barely crochet so felting is not something I’m familiar with. When I heard there were no rules, no thread, and no buttons to press on Simplicity’s 12 Needle Deluxe Felting Machine I knew I had to give it a try!  Thanks to our generous friends at Simplicity I now have the opportunity to play with this new baby and give one away to a lucky follower… will it be you?

 The machine has 12 needles that come already installed for you.  A guard to protect you from getting your precious fingers too close to the needles. It has no buttons or screens to deal with.  Simply step on the foot pedal and go!

I’ve played around with quite a few fabrics and materials so far including natural and synthetic fibers and have had no trouble at all.

I’m excited to play around with this little machine some more and bring you some tutorials in the near future because there is so much that can be done with it!

Here is a little eyeglass case I made from an old wool sweater. So easy and quick! Tutorial for this is coming soon! 

One lucky viewer will receive the felting machine, a pack of 12 needles, allen wrenches and the Felting projects & tips book.

    This is so awesome. My mom and I were just oogling one of these the other day. Even my four year old thought it was cool! Is there a way to enter without setting up a youtube channel thing? I’m not big on the idea of having my info hanging out there.

    I saw one of these arround Christmas time however I can’t afford one yet but it would really help out with the jackets I make nd donate to less fortunate children in my area. I buy old wool blankets from Good Will and other places. I then make childrens jackets and embellish them with pieces of wool and roaving to make the look less “blankety”. The problem is that hand felting takes longer and I can’t always get enough jackets made for the need in my area. If I could win this giveaway it would really help out for the upcomming winters here in Washington state. My area is having a large increase of displaced workers. The food banks are in need and so are the children. I don’t know how much longer this decline is going to last but I do know that children are always in need. I also know that having just one important thing donated to a needy family can take so much stress off of a parent. This is something I can do to give back to a community that has helped my family when we were in need.

    Another great video, Vanessa. This looks like a great little machine that you could have a lot of fun with. Amazing how it works.

  • Day - NyLA Love

    Wait, I’m confused. On the video, one of the requirements is to “like” Simplicity’s FB page… but here, you’re saying we don’t have to have one to enter. So.. how do we know if we’re getting a fair chance at winning if we (us that don’t have FB accounts) don’t “like” Simplicity’s fb page?? 🙁

    • Vanessa Wilson

      For each one of the action’s you complete off the list you get one entry. Some people will have more entries than others based on whether or not they have a Facebook or YouTube account.

  • Connie

    I want to win Simplicity’s 12 Needle Deluxe Felting Machine because: I think my daughter’s girlscout troop would really be able to get a lot of use out of it. We make hats, scarves, etc for the homeless. This awesome machine would be a safe way to easily embellish those items.

    What a great giveaway! Simplicity fantastic! Really this would be wonderful to win. Needle felting by hand is so time consuming and hard on your hands. With this you get all the fun and none of the work.

    Oh, Vanessa, I think you have the “ultimate” giveaway of all! I have been wanting to learn how to felt wool for some time now. This Simplicity machine looks so awesome.

    Hi <3 Crafty Gemeini <3 I’m <3 DIY Leo <3 …….I made for my Son and Grandchildren a huge felt board. I’ve made a Christmas scenery, a Halloween scenery, a Winter scenery, Math, Color & Shapes etc….all by hand. The children would play for hours. I too could play for hours with the Simplicity 12 Needle Deluxe Felting Machine. It would be a blessing.

  • Jan Templin

    OOOOOh, I LOVE this machine! Your tutorial shows just how easy it is. I would like to win the Simplicity’s 12 Needle Deluxe Felting Machine because I have enjoyed seeing new felting products but they seemed hard to do. This machine will make it easier and less time consuming with an 8 month old wandering around as I’m sure you can understand. I’d LOVE to try a quilt with this machine too. Applique or even blocks using felt and/or wool.

    love your style, love how clearly you demonstrate what you’re doing!

  • ConnieLK

    I have heard of felting machines, but had no idea it was so easy. I also thought you had to have special materials to use. Thanks for the great info.

  • Delia15

    Hi Vanessa, I watched your video evaluation of the Simplicity machine felter and was impressed with how easy it is to work. I would like to win the Simplicity’s 12 Needle Deluxe Felting Machine because it would add the extra special touch to quilt blocks I am learning to make. If one doesn’t own an embroidery machine, this might be the next best thing to add texture and a little pizzazz to totes and handbags and quilt blocks. Thanks for hosting the contest. I’ve enjoyed your YouTube videos and now your blog.
