Karen Engelbretson

Stillwater, Minnesota-based fiber artist Karen Engelbretson loves birds. Her needle felted birds are her interpretation of the avian life outside her studio window. KJE Felties™ began in October, 2008, inspired by a move to the country.
KJE Felties are treasured gifts — no two are alike. They’re made of 100 percent new wool (there’s nothing else inside) and individually needle-felted by Karen. She also crafts the natural branches they often alight upon.
Karen has retired from her career as a graphic artist but still enjoys creating work on her own letterpress.
