Episode #26: Jocelyn Gayle from Petit Felts

Needle felted pieces for your inner child.

Today I鈥檒l be talking to Jocelyn Gayle founder of Petit Felts. As a kid, Jocelyn used to spend every free moment she had making little animal sculptures out of clay. She studied Metals and Jewelry at SCAD, and after some years working as a recruiter and encouraging kids to pursue creative careers, she decided to do so. 聽Jocelyn took her own advice and the rest, well, she will share it with us today! 聽

On this episode we discuss:

  • How her fascination for felting started.
  • Needing a change led her to a place that supported her creative outlet.
  • Taking her own advice and looking to nurture her maker self.
  • The reaction to her little felted animals at a craft fair.
  • How they transformed her craft into a business.
I was in a coffee shop. I saw a woman that was felting, it looked really fascinating the fact that she was felting with this one needle! I asked her about it, she gave me a quick intro, gave me one of her needles, a little bit of wool and I became obsessed about it!
