Thank you to all of you who’ve already made the trek to see my show, Liberty and Justice, at the Cotuit Center for the Arts . If you haven’t been yet, there are just 2 more weeks to get yourself over there! They report great traffic, with many smiling faces seen on folks coming from the Upper Gallery. To read a review of the show from the Falmouth Enterprise, click here.
You are invited to come hear my talk on Sat., April 13th at 11 AM. I will give a peek behind the scenes at my working process (including making the film) and share what it’s like to shift from safe and secure subject matter to political art.

You go, girlfriend! Speak your truth. If we don’t have our voice, we have nothing.

Hi Salley. I follow with great interest from here in Yorkshire, UK. I am so thrilled that your work is doing so well. I love it. I tried binding a pipe cleaner with cotton cord yesterday, I guess it needs a lot of practice! Sandra
Thanks for following along, Sandra. Yes, it’s all about practice!
like many others, i have been following you for quite awhile. probably since i first saw the bird piece at the Yeiser in paducah. ❤️ now, i also love all the work you’ve been doing since. i belong to the textile center of minnesota, a national space for textile arts. we have a shop, classes, meeting spaces, designated dye lab, and gallery space. i mentioned your name and work to our current gallery manager, Tracy Krumm. she was very interested, however we have limited availability each year. i would absolutely love it if you would apply for an exhibition here (minneapolis). the schedule may be up to two years out. we have a very active community of textile people who would love your work (and themes!). Please consider applying!!! please! sincerely, wendy richardson
Wendy, Thank you for your interest in my work and suggestion to apply to the Textile Center. Do they have a shipping budget? That is usually the deciding factor in whether to apply. Right now, I am concentrating on finishing my children’s book, but I’ll look into it later.
Hi Salley – I finally visited Cotuit this week-end and LOVED Liberty & Justice. Of course I have been following their saga in the local media and the Wee Folk Studio blog – but “meeting them in person” was incredible. I laughed out loud during the film – and I was the only one in the gallery! Thank you!!! Cathy O.
Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Cathy! Deb and Jim said they saw you there. It’s my pleasure to give people like you the opportunity to meet the cast!
Salley, do you offer workshops or classes? I am on the Cape and have been needle felting for a few months. Love your work.
Thanks for your interest Susan, but I do not teach classes. I’m just too busy making stuff. Please check out the Frequently Asked Questions Page: https://weefolkstudio.com/faq/
I love following your posts and wish that I lived a lot closer to New England. Your creativity is amazing and the expressiveness of your tiny figures is inspiring. I don’t have a long resume of crafting and doll making, but I was lucky enough to get your original flower fairy kits and have several copies of your Wee folk books. One copy of each on the bookshelf and one copy in my doll room. I work slowly because of hand mobility problems but I love looking at your updates. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us.
Thank you Pam, it’s so nice to hear about your long relationship with the wee folk!
Your work is incredible, very inspiring, I am sure there were lots of happy faces… just wish I was a little closer!
Eres. una inspiración para mi, admiré tus trabajos anteriores pero aún más los actuales. Y me pregunto ¿qué sería dei mundo sin la voz de los artistas? Felicitaciones y un abrazo inmenso desde Argentina.🍀🍀🍀👋👋👋🌈🌈🌈💝
Muchas gracias, Laura!
