I'm Tina Cross but most know me online as Tinsi Winsi and I'm living in Durham .but my work is often influenced by having lived in Tuscany for 2 years. I leaned the basics of felting almost 5 years ago at an Art and Craft class. .. I'm registered disabled and have a severe chronic form of Arthritis etc.,. I thought it would be therapeutic . I was hooked . I now belong to a wonderful group online, Needle Felters U.K.. I share my work within the group and sell through craft fairs and word of mouth. This year we found out my husband of 45 years is terminally ill. Needle felting is something that has a calming influence on me and with the friends I have made through this wonderful craft my days are not so dark as they first appeared.
