Where is the live craftalong?

The live craftalong takes place in our Craft for Cats Facebook group on Saturday 25 November 2023  at 10am-12 noon. When you sign up, you’ll receive an invite to join the group.

How do I watch the live craftalong?

To watch the live craftalong all you need to do is join our Craft for Cats Facebook group and when it’s time the live video will automatically appear in the Facebook group. If you can’t see the live video, you may just need to refresh the page.

I don’t have Facebook, can I still take part?

Yes! It’s no problem if you don’t have Facebook, we record the live craftalong and will send you a link to watch on YouTube shortly after the event.

I can’t make the live craftalong, is it recorded?

Yes! We will make sure to record the live event so you can watch on demand whenever works best for you. Plus, your craft kit will also come with step-by-step instructions so you can needle felt your cat decoration at your own pace.

Can I purchase the craft kit as a gift?

Yes, you can! All you need to do is select the option ‘Craft for Cats place - For someone else (a gift)’ on the registration form.

What age is the needle felting project suitable for?

It is recommended for adults and children aged 10+ under adult supervision due to the use of a sharp needle.

Is the needle felting project easy to make?

Yes - our Craft for Cats events are for crafters of any ability and experience, including beginners! During the live craftalong, you'll be shown how to needle felt your cat decoration by Steffi from The Makerss. Your craft kit will also include instructions so you can craft at your own pace.

Do you offer a vegan needle felting kit?

No, unfortunately we’re unable to provide a materials kit without animal products for the needle felting craft project. Our craft partner, The Makerss, has advised: 

‘We are unable to offer a vegan alternative to wool as plant-based fibres are much less suitable for needle felting (although they can be mixed into wool to enable them to felt) and synthetic man-made fibres have a considerably greater impact on the environment.’

We ensure every craft partner we work with for our Craft for Cats events acts in accordance with Cats Protection’s ethical policy and any animal products, such as wool, in the craft kits are cruelty-free.

The Makerss responsibly source their wool and horsehair and the wool is 100% mulesing-free. You can find further information about The Makerss’ ethical and environmental policies here.
