What a pleasure it was to meet Salley Mavor on Saturday at Petunia’s Place in Fresno. I love her new book, A Pocketful of Posies. Her fabric artwork is exquisite. I not only purchased three of her books, I decided to try my hand at making ‘wee folk,’ using her book, Felt Wee Folk, as a guide.
Nancy hails from the mid-west but after earning her master’s degree at Washington University in St. Louis she decided sunny California might be a nice change from all the snow and ice. She first moved to Southern California, where she taught at a small private school for Deaf children and in kindergarten at a Catholic school in downtown LA.
