Welcome to Binding Tales & Lichendia Felting

Binding Tales began in 2019 with the creation of interactive paperback children’s books that inspire and lead young authors (ages 5 and up) with guided composition and illustration prompts. A child’s imagination and the written words of some of their earliest composition pour onto the pages of their very own storybook, instantly preserving their masterpiece in a format you’ll keep and cherish forever!

As 2020 arrived, I found myself easing stress by felting more and more. Figuring out how to navigate a life and world rocked by the pandemic required intentional grounding and a commitment to finding, making, and experiencing joy. On our quiet, sloping hillside in the woods of Maine, a fairyland named Lichendia® was brought to life through needle felting colorful wool fibers. The magic is real, as long as you believe.

As the Binding Tales shop of books, products, felting kits, online felting lessons, and artwork continues to grow, my family and I would be honored to be part of your creative journey!
