Back in July, I posted about a delightful little shop that used to be in the Block Arcade, Melbourne, many years ago. Dafel Felt was a business where you could purchase felt kits to make marvellously designed felt toys. The clever elderly lady, the owner and designer of these delightful characters, has now sadly passed away.
I am thrilled and delighted to have been contacted by Kim Wilson (there is power in blogging!).
Kim is the now owner of Dafel Felt and she informs me that she will be sending me information on the history of Dafel. I consider this a great honour. It will become an important part of the "sewing museum" when it (the museum) becomes a reality!

What a wonderful thing to receive. I really find this interesting as I am so into pincushions with felt.

Wouldnt it be good if they could be reproduced again and sold.
I think your blog is wonderful.

As far as I know they will be! I have yet to receive the information from Kim regarding what they have in the catalogue, but all will be revealed soon!
Thanks Linda!
