Featured shop - JurgaFeltLife

Simona from XO Stitch

We want you to introduce to one more etsy shop of the Lithuanian team, this time it's JurgaFeltLife. Here is short and amazing movie about shop owner Jurga's hobby that turned into her work.

About the beginning shop owner Jurga tells: my life as a feltmaker began when I became a mom. I fell in love with felt in 2008 when my first son turned 3 months old. The love grew bigger and bigger with every little thing I used to felt, with every piece of art I found in books and magazines. Before that I worked as an architect in a small company, later I understood I really need more freedom in my occupation, I wanted to see my children growing. I wanted to do what I really loved to. This was working with textile. This was felting.

My very first felt craft was a pair of red slippers for myself: much better than I could have imagined. Afterwards there was a bag with flying little butterflies, slippers for my family and handbags for friends. Step by step I discovered more and more about this old and amazing craft.

In all of Jurga's works there are a feeling of nature. When we asked her about creation space, Jurga told us about it: we live near a forest and a lake surrounded by wild meadows in summer and magnificent snowdrifts in wintertime with only a few neighbours in the distance.

I work at home. In the midst of beautiful nature I feel so free and creative. I can't imagine myself working alone. Kids, my little assistants, are running around and are always willing to advise me on the selection of colours. My husband is also there with his free sense of art and brilliant ideas. He is my number one quality controller. I love working at home where I can feel free and comfortable.
