I knew I was serious about needle felting and have many more ideas to create that I haven’t even done yet, so a carding machine was at least as important as choosing a sewing machine (which cost thousands nowadays). I chose one and was ready to purchase it but had the nagging feeling I would be disappointed after spending all that money. I shopped on ebay but still the cost was over $400 and, knowing me, I would outgrow it almost immediately. It’s like anything else, if you get the lowest price item, you will wish you paid a little more and got what you really wanted. So I waited some more.
