Perfect weather for a Porchwalk

A delightful fall day greeted visitors to the 19th annual Artisans’ Porchwalk Sept. 29-30 in Lititz. There were 40 artisans displaying and selling their handiwork. The objects of their hands and their minds’ eyes ranged from crochet to watercolor and every alphabetical stop between the two.

We couldn’t visit every one of the participating artisans, but we had a chance to chat with Tracy Shue, who makes felted dogs. Her tool is a barbed needle, and her material is carded wool, pretty much as it comes from the sheep and then carded so the fibers flow mostly in a straight line.

Tracy Shue uses a barbed needle to create her felted dogs out of balls of wool.


Some of the felted dogs created by Tracy Shue, of York, were on display and on sale at this year’s Porchwalk.
