With this methood, Myfanwy states: I would help with fitting as we are sewing.This is the best way to do it. Myfanwy is rightfully known as "the daughter of the mother of all nuno-felters" because it is her mother who evolved the nuno felt method now used internationally. Incidentally, Sachiko Kotaka was the person who looked at Penny's work and said, Oh, it is Nuno!
