Felting Crazy, founded by Shelley Steele and based in Midtown Makers in Ballymena, began in 2013. It was the result of a life time's love for dress making, where Shelley made everything from doll's clothes to outfits for nights out.
Shelley's inspiration comes from her love of nature, landscapes and textures.
She fell in love with felting afdter attending a workshop and describes it as 'a magical process'.
She spins her own yard with an old fashioned spinning wheel, and knits bags, jewellery, shawls, scarves, and much more.
In addition to this, she also creates felted animals and takes commissions for cats and dogs.
Every month, Shelley also runs felting workshops, which are well attended.
