Needle felting is demonstrated with wool on foam and Chef Julia Usher makes decorated cookies.
Debra Quartermain will share some history on needle felting and then show how to do this technique with wool on foam, which began a few years ago. It allows the creation of a variety of whimsical and fun designs from animals to foodstuffs. Her company is Debra Quartermain Design. Julia Usher is a chef and cookbook author and makes decorated cookies look absolutely unreal - but they are definitely edible. She's going to talk about different icings and show when to use each one as she does marbling and top coating on prepared cookies.
