Feltmakers Federation Returns for 2nd annual trunk show!

Just in time for fall's cooler weather, Eclectics welcomes back the artist of the Feltmaker's Federation of Kansas City. Last year their show was a great hit, and they are coming back....with more creative felt objects, apparel and animals!

This is Victor, the Mouse - needle felted sculpture by Kate Barsotti of Pencil and Sheep.
If you are a KCLive watcher (on KSHB Channel 41, mornings at 10 a.m.) with Joel Nichols, you may have seen Carol Ann Parker teaching Joel how to make felted balls.

Feltmakers use the same basic materials (wool - in the form of yarn, roving or reclaimed knitted fibers), soap, heat and/or friction) but their amazing creativity ranges widely!


Some even grow their own by raising their own sheep! This sweet little guy is a stress reliever.


Visiting artists are:


  • Donna Putnam: felted scarves and massage lambs
  • Jamie Root: felted hats and apparel 
  • Judy Santner: felted apparel and hand bags
  • Becky Stevens: felted wall hangings, pins, and scarves
  • Carol Ann Parker: felted hats 
  • Barrie Mason: felted post cards and apparel 
  • Lauri Davidson: felted scarves   
  • Jackie Kincaid: felted jewelry, hand bags, and scarves 
  • Kate Barsotti: needle felted animals 
  • Lyla Bradshaw: felted apparel and jewelry
 Plan to visit Eclectics on Saturday, October 11 - there will be various felt making artists around all day - and a reception from 4-7pm with live fiddle music from one of the artists!

In addition, shoppers may bring in no-longer-used cell phones or items from the “wish list” on the SAFEHOME website and Eclectics will collect donations that week to pass on to SAFEHOME. Used cell phones may be recycled and the organization can get cash for them. The “wish list” items are for the use of victims of abuse who are served by SAFEHOME's program.


The artists of Eclectics encourage you to join us and support the work of this excellent local organization serving people from all walks of life in our community. Learn more about SAFEHOME online at http://www.safehome-ks.org.

Support MOCSA - Eclectics' Fundraising Week

We at Eclectics feel strongly about supporting important causes. One of the most important is helping children of abuse. Here in Kansas City an organization called MOCSA (Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Abuse) does exactly that.

MOCSA's art and play therapy programs are designed to help child victims of abuse. Their mission is to improve the lives of those impacted by sexual abuse and assault and prevent sexual violence in our community.


April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month - please join Eclectics and help us support the work of MOCSA any way you can.  One easy way is to shop at Eclectics the first week of April (March 21 - April 5). 10% of all sales that week will go to support MOCSA's programs in Kansas City.

Check out more information about how MOCSA helps here. Someone you know may need their help.
