"My name is Karen and I am the owner and Director of the terrific Consultants you will find here at this web site, as well as a wife and mother of 2 little girls and a son born in January of '04. I have been with Story Time Felts since late September of 1998. Since I have moved around a lot, I am grateful to have Story Time Felts products to introduce me to people! It is so easy to talk to others when you have something you believe in to share with them. I have met more people and made more friends in the time I have been doing this than ever before. And I know that the moms, teachers, and childcare providers that I come into contact with share similar values - a love of children and belief in quality educational opportunities for them!"

"I have always been a part of teaching my children, and was so excited when I came in contact with Story Time Felts.  The product was exactly what I was looking for: something pliable, with bright colors, washable (a big plus), hands on, and an awesome supplement to the books and workbooks I use!

Hello, my name is Rhonda Hayes and I am an Independent Consultant with Story Time Felts!  I feel so happy to be a part of such a great company!  I have been with Story Time Felts for 4 months now, and have felt part of a great big family; in that we all help each other succeed in our own business. 

I have a supportive husband, 1 beautiful daughter, and 3 handsome sons, ages 9, 7, 4, and 1 ½ who absolutely love playing, and sleeping with the felt!  I love being able to stay home teaching my children, and always look for opportunities to share “felt” with others!  I love the product, and enjoy seeing my children’s eyes light up with knowledge when playing, moving, and talking about space, animals, spelling, math, fairy tale stories, and much more!

I am one of two consultants in all of Texas.  My dream is to build a team of consultants who can help me share this product with others so every child has the opportunity of learning and growing with felt!"

"I thought my life had everything - a career I love (teaching), a supportive and loving husband, and three children. Then, I found Story Time Felts! I didn't even stop to think about it. I just knew that this was something I wanted (needed???) to do and I haven't regretted it since! Since starting this business, I have learned to think positively and my confidence has soared! Story Time Felts has been more than an opportunity to make some extra money - it has become a part of my circle of friends and support! I LOVE it!"

"Hi! My name is Becky. I live in Ruther Glen, Virginia. I'm the mother of 2 boys, ages 23 and 26 years. We run a child daycare at home, so I knew Story Time Felts felt products would fit right in with the little ones. I love the bright colors!  The felt is sooo much softer and nicer than other felt products! Originally when I joined Story Time Felts in March of 1999, I just wanted the felt for the daycare. But when I started to get in touch with the other consultants through emails and chat meetings online,  I knew I had to stick around and learn more! What a friendship circle we have here! I really enjoy it so much! Because my daycare kind of keeps me home most of the time, I focus my Story Time Felts business on evenings and weekends at different events such as home shows, crafts fairs, fundraisers, etc. for different groups, such as daycare centers, libraries, schools, and more. ! I have 2 on my team, and I hope to add more in the near future!"

"All too soon they move from one stage to another and before you know it, the first day of school turns into graduation.

My name is Jessie Rollins. I have four adult children along with a niece and a 6 year old. My four grandbabies are 5,3,1 and 2 months. I firmly believe in spending time with children not in front of the T.V.

The more involved the senses, the better children learn, the better their vocabulary, thinking and communication skills. I have read that you retain 10% of what you hear, 40% if you see and hear, and 70-100% when you see, say, hear, and do. Creative play allows children to use their imagination, and by using their hands (tactile) they build a meaningful connection to words and sounds that lead to reading.

The StoryTeller felt is a wonderful, educational and fun tool in the hands of my little ones. They use the felt to create their own stories building on traditional book stories.

As my children moved through primary school, I enjoyed reading to their classes. Now with my grandbabies, this business is giving me an opportunity to build on what I've learned as a mother and to share that with family and friends. Who's having the most fun? This year my kindergartners Valentine's Day card read: "I love you mom because you play games with me ... Love, Joy"

"I was browsing the internet one day, trying to find some felt stories for our family nights and I came across Story Time Felts website. I was so happy to find exactly what I had been looking for and even happier when I realized that I could make some money for our family by becoming a Story Time Felts Consultant! I love this product, and even though I don't consider myself a "salesperson", my enthusiasm catches on when I start telling people about what I'm selling. I just had my first party and it exceeded my expectations. The Story Time Felts felt really does sell itself because I mostly just answered questions and took orders!

I read to my children all the time and they love books.  And now with our Story Time Felts felt boards and activities they get to take over while I listen! I can see how valuable this product is to my children, so it's easy to get excited about selling it as well.

I can't wait to see where this new adventure as a Story Time Felts consultant takes me..."

"Hi There! My Name is Awnya Boam and I currently live in Logan, Utah. I have 2 beautiful children a 2 1/2 year old boy and a 9 month old little girl. They are the main reason that I love being in the Storyteller business! I enjoy the time that I am able to spend with them because I have a home based business. One of the things that I love about the Storyteller is new friends I have both from demonstrating and other consultants. (I will also admit that I am hopelessly addicted to Felt!) I love the way that children's eyes light up when they are looking at our products as well as the learning and fun they have when they are playing with it. I found Story Time Felts at a home party and knew about 10 minutes into the demonstration that I was hooked! Almost 2 years later and I'm still in Love!"

"Hi! My name is Julie Moraes and I am a wife and mother to two wonderful girls. I have been with Story Time Felts since August 2003.  I discovered Story Time Felts early one morning when I was inspired to get up and turn the TV on.  Something I never do, especially at 5:30 in the morning!  But there it was, a TV ad for Story Time Felts.  I knew the product would be perfect for my 7 year old daughter.  She had recently went into a paper doll craze, but it was sad (and frustrating) to find all our hard work ripped or torn laying in crumples on the floor.  Story Time Felts felt clothes won't tear and it doesn't hurt them to crumple.  Plus they are washable!  How wonderful!  Well, at the end of the TV ad I found out that they were looking for Independent Consultants, and since I was looking for a home party type business that made a difference in my life and in the lives of others, I knew Story Time Felts was right for me!

I've enjoyed every aspect of the business, from meeting new people, to telling wonderful stories to children, to selling a product I believe in, to the great family feeling of our Funfelt Team, but the biggest satisfaction is knowing that our products are touching the heart and minds of children.  It is so fun to meet other women with the same passion, and to see the children's eyes light up when they play with the products.

I am one of two consultants in Oregon. My goal is to build a team of Independent Consultants all across Oregon and Clark County Washington. But one of the greatest things about being a consultant with Story Time Felts is that you are not limited to one area, so your team can be anywhere in the USA. So, if you are interested in this passion of touching the heart and minds of children everywhere, and think Story Time Felts might be for you please contact me. I'm looking forward to meeting you!"
