Felting by Jill Messier

We’re celebrating textiles throughout March at the Horry County Museum! Join us March 21st at 1:00 PM as local quilter and textile artist Jill Messier discusses felting and shares some of her creations.
Jill Messier moved to Conway from Enfield, Connecticut four years ago and arrived two days before Hurricane Florence. Jill first started felting in March 2022 when a stuffed bear that she was working on required felting for the nose. She soon fell in love with the endless possibilities for different animals and characters that could be felted and is open to changing each creation as it is being made, depending on where the journey takes her. Messier has made dogs, pigs, bears, owls, cats, and much, much more. She has also began doing pictures that are felted on cloth and has started felting on a canvas picture.
The program will be held at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street, Conway, SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
