Black Sheep Designs is a very small family business
focused on feltmaking. We make and market hand-felted creations, feltmaking
workshops and instruction, and felting supplies and hope to make a little
money doing it. We like helping to spread the joys of quality crafts widely.
While this statement of terms and conditions may sound a bit legalistic, its
intent is simple: to enable individuals to pursue the personal pleasures of
feltmaking while offering us a modicum of protection for the work we have
put into our business.
