  1. My sister and I enjoyed your visit ,talk about your art work, film of your life and your books, @ the congregational church in Falmouth. Thanks, Joan Haggerty Mashpee m.a.

  2. Thank you for sharing your exquisite fabric relief art with the rest of us. A friend and I recently enjoyed your show at the Mahopac Library. Your books are lovely, but seeing the level of detail in your work in person was truly amazing!

  3. My daughter just saw your book in michaels and we bought materials to make the kids projects. I am a contemporary art lover and now a wee fairy lover as well. Very cool and unique style. We will be attending Boston show!

  4. Do you think you would ever make it to Northern California on tour????? I have been a lover and admirer of your works for years since I purchased your book Felt Wee Folk, I couldn’t sleep all night, just looking through it and dreaming on. I make bears out of recycled wool coats and sweaters, have been doing it for years, now it is the vogue with younger women which has been wonderful to see. Also, make dolls and fairies and dream of having an Etsy site one day. I would love it if you were ever around these parts, I live in the Sierra Foothills about an hour north east of Sacramento, CA Thank you for sharing all your beautiful and magical creations, Jeanette Paganetti

    • Jeanette,
      Thank you for your kind words and encouragement to show my work in northern California. Perhaps an invitation will come my way in the future. For now, I am concentrating on creating new pieces and entering them in group shows. So, one of my originals is coming to northern California! I’ve just heard that my piece, “Birds of Beebe Woods” was accepted into INNOVATIONS IN FIBER ART VI, Oct. 24 – Nov. 30, Sebastopol Center for the Arts. I hope that you have a chance to go see the show.

  5. Salley, I volunteer at the New England Quilt Museum and saw your wonderful exhibit there for the first time today. I’d like to write a blog for Piecing Together a Life and then offer it to the Museum to post. I want to be sure it’s ok with you to use pictures of your books and wall-mounted scenes at the Museum in Lowell. Many thanks. Judy Buswick

  6. Hi Salley-I took your banner class at highfield hall and wondered if you had considered teaching another one there? I love your work and enjoyed making my harvest banner.

    • Jennifer,
      The banner workshop was fun and I’m glad that you came! Thank you for asking, but I will probably not be giving more workshops in the future. My work is luring me into the studio more these days and I find that I don’t have the time or energy to teach classes.

  7. Hello Salley,

    I love your work and I will attempt to make a “quilt” for hanging using the picture on the cover of Felt Wee Folk, and adding other panels around the picture for my new baby grandson to be. I’m having trouble finding fleece for the hair in natural colors. I looked on the websites you provided but don’t see the type you used in your dolls.
    Thanks so much,
    Joanna Reinking

    • Your project sounds impressive! With the popularity of needle felting, there are lots of places to buy wool fleece on the web. Search for wool roving, wool fleece or needle felting.
