Welcome to the International Feltmakers Association
The International Feltmakers Association is a not-for-profit organisation established to promote felt in all its forms. We are all volunteers whose job it is to continue the work of our founder, the late Mary Burkett, OBE. We welcome everyone with an interest in feltmaking from the beginner to the professional.
