Simplicity’s Electric Hand Felting Machine & Giveaway

Another crazy new crafting tool is out! This one is by Simplicity and is called the Electric Hand Felting Machine.

If you recall a few months ago I did a product review on the Simplicity’s 12 Needle Deluxe Felting machine. Well, this time I’m back with a mini handheld version! This is the one to have if you are someone who doesn’t have a big crafting area or the storage space for more machines.  It’s just small enough but still comfortable to hold and has 6 barbed needles— as much as some of the bigger felting machines on the market today.

As usual our very generous friends at have provided me with one machine and a block of felting foam to give one of you lucky readers/viewers.  Watch the video review to find out what I like and don’t like about the machine and for all the details on how you can enter for your chance to win one of your own. has also created a discount code just for Crafty Gemini followers!

At checkout enter discount code: CRAFTY15
Discount expires July 31, 2012 and is only valid on orders shipped in the U.S.

This is the time to get some goodies!

I love pins!

    Not sure why but after subscribing YouTube wouldn’t let me comment, so here is my response…

    I’ve never felted before but would love to try it and add the felted goodies to my sewing projects. I am getting ready to start up my own business and this would be a great addition.

    This looks like it would be a wonderful item to have for my fiber addiction. It seems to be easier than hand felting and would allow me to do more projects. I have arthritis in my hands and hand felting can be difficult. Thank you for the review! This is a must have tool for me – glad you gave it a thumbs up.

    That´s why I want to win.A felting maschine is very much bigger.

    I have been using single needles like many above have stated. This machine would be fabulous to graduate to larger projects that I would never attempt otherwise because of the time and physicality involved. I would love to try this and I bet I would love it!

  15. Char July 18, 2012 at 10:22 am #

    This is a cool tool and I’d love to try it. My studio is full of will so I’m all set!

  23. Cindy July 18, 2012 at 1:30 pm #

    I like the look of felting but found that doing it by hand too tedious. This would certainly speed things up and I have ton of fiber.

  24. Anonymous July 18, 2012 at 2:56 pm #

    I really enjoy needle felting and think that this very safe looking machine would be great to use to introduce the Brownies I work with to this craft.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a great looking machine

    Fladmail – I teach a fiber arts camp in the summer for 4H (we are on year 5) and we have been leary of felting due to the needles and small fingers – this solves it!! Would love to have the machine and able to teach felting next year.

  37. Paula Collins July 19, 2012 at 10:10 pm #

    My husband and I have taken some felting classes. We have made felted pictures (landscapes). This tool will make it much easier to make the pictures with. The backgrounds take forever by hand! Thanks for the chance on winning! Paula I am also a Gemini

    This is so cool. I have always wanted to try this but am afraid of puncturing my fingers. I can think of so many things that I would try to do. Thanks for the chance to win this neat little machine.

  40. ***Brenda*** July 21, 2012 at 10:11 am #

    Love it!! Now I know what I want for my birthday. By then I should have my very own work space. Yeah!! I can move out of the kitchen. Thanks for offering the chance!!

  41. hennies.pennies July 21, 2012 at 9:47 pm #

    I love Simplicity! They are always coming out with great ideas to help the crafter be more efficient. This looks like a sweet little machine. I do have several hand felting needles and have dabbled a bit. Having this neat little machine would make it so much easier to do little embellishments for my projects. I love working with wool, especially penny rugs and mats. Thank you for an opportunity to win this! Be especially blessed, Kathy

  42. My Scrappy Quilts July 21, 2012 at 10:29 pm #

    I’ve never heard of this machine. Looks like a lot of fun to play with. Would love to win one.

    I thought that I had already posted, but didn’t see my comment. I love felting and would love to easily transport a felting machine with me when I join friends for a day of crafting/sewing/felting fun. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  47. pizzaeater August 20, 2012 at 3:07 am #

    I have always wanted to try felting and I think that this portable machine is perfect for me. I have a little working space and I never win anything! I want to win.

  48. cleomisty September 15, 2012 at 10:26 pm #

    Not sure why we can’t have one in NZ I have a transformer for this type of equipment I had to buy it when I got my first applique mini iron Not able to enter for draw but would love to purchase one

  49. Anonymous September 28, 2013 at 9:46 pm #

    I bought one, and I can’t get it to felt or even mesh anything together. It was expensive, and sorry but a complete waste of money. My 10 year old grandaughter was bored to death with it.
