visit to Fresno

Fresno Show 1

We had a wonderful time doing book related business in Fresno, CA on Friday and Saturday. First there was the reception for the “Pocketful of Posies” exhibit, which is on display through May 24 at the Arne Nixon Center for the Study of Children’s Literature, Henry Madden Library at Fresno State.

Jennifer Crow and her helper Mai Sou Lee did a beautiful job organizing and hanging the show.

On Saturday, I signed books at Petunia’s Place, a children’s bookstore in Fresno. 14 yr. old Sarah Riley came from a 3 hour distance to meet me. She started making fairies from Felt Wee Folk when she was 7. I’m impressed!

  1. Sally, it was great to meet you and get my book signed. I was so excited months ago when I saw that you would be coming to Fresno. Your work is so incredible in 3-D and I plan to visit a couple more times before the display leaves. It’s amazing that you are so prolific, your fingers must fly as you stitch!

  2. Hi Sally,

    I so wanted to come meet you! I just couldn’t escape from all the activities that my children were committed to doing this weekend. I’ll travel to go see your exhibit in the next few weeks though, and am so happy that they finally made it out to California. I’ve been telling everyone I know who might have an interest about it. I hope you had a wonderful time out here and enjoyed our beautiful sunshine and spring green hills. They’ll turn gold before you know it!

  3. Fantastic visit! Wish I could have talked my grandson into posing with you, but I’m happy that he loves the book. My daughter got her copy for her baby-to-be at a shower that afternoon, as well as the Hey, Diddle, Diddle board book. I have to deliver the other copy of A Pocketful of Posies to another new baby in the next few weeks. I am in awe of your work!

  4. Thank you for being so kind to Sarah Riley, she was beyond excited to meet you. It was definitely worth the 3 hour road trip, a perfect family outing. We all love your artwork and how much it has inspired her.
