Salley Mavor and a give-away!

pfoppg48_49
Blogging has the potential to be quite powerful and something amazing happened this week. A doorway opened. In my last post, I shared with you my love for Salley Mavor's book Felt Wee Folk. First, a little background is in order for you to fully appreciate my gushing... oh and do read through, as there is a surprise at the end!
jackjill_picnik
My admiration for Salley's soft 3 dimensional illustrations began when my son was a toddler and we stumbled upon her rendition of Mary Had A Little Lamb. Having grown up in a nursery school with constant exposure to wonderful books, I've had a lifetime love affair with children's literature. Salley's Mavor's exquisite tiny details moved me more than any other book before. I remember bringing it home and staying up late into the night pouring over every little tiny stitch and wishing I could jump into the page. I was hungry for more and discovered that she had created quite a few books. They were each gorgeous, but the text of  In the Heart (Ann Turner) combined with Salley's evocative felt sculptures took my breath away. When her how-to book (Felt Wee Folk) was released, I felt like I had struck gold. This was long before my days online, and it remained one of my only crafting books for many years. When I shared it with you on Monday, I didn't do my usual Googling for background. It simply didn't occur to me, since I associated Salley Mavor with a different time in my life, the pre-blogging era.  However, a bit of "virtual" magic occurred yesterday. Maybe some of you noticed. Salley Mavor commented. Not such a big deal? Oh my, how it rocked my world! Yes, of course Salley is just another talented artist in this inspirational on-line community... but not only did I not know she was HERE... she's has been a house hold hero of mythic proportions for years! So, please let me introduce (and do forgive me if you already know this)... Salley's blog: Wee Folk Studio.  I have been a bit lost there for the last 24 hours... I did feed my family and do the laundry... but all with a glazed look in my eyes. Her blog is filled with wonderful insight into her creative process and I ate it all up. It's my new must read!
 Her latest book is quite the masterpiece: A Pocketful Of Posies combines her original fabric relief illustrations with a treasury of familiar nursery rhymes.
Every image in this post comes from somewhere in between the pages of this lovely children's book, soon to be a classic.

She has outdone herself with page after page (72 full color ones!) of her 3 dimensional interpretation of old favorite verses. These photos, courtesy of Salley Mavor, are peeks into the process and evolution. Some of them are complete, and others are bit and pieces in the making. It's all there at your finger tips to admire, and I highly recommend viewing this selection of  posts on its creation right here. But first for the surprise... did the post title give it away?:)

I've now had some very nice correspondence with Salley, and she's just as kind as her work is lovely. She is offering an autographed copy of Pocket Full of Posies to one lucky reader! What a wonderful addition to any library!  Please leave a comment in this post before Saturday at 5pm EST and the random winner will be announced on Sunday morning. Good luck! Comments are now closed. Thanks!

  13. When our son was small (he's 15 now!), I made many wee felt folks from Ms Mavor's first book. When our daughter was a baby (she's nearly 6!), we bought all of Ms Mavor's board books and gave the set as gifts many times over since. Now I'm so happy to hear that there is another of her creations in print and know that I will have one. It would be lovely to win a giveaway, but will eventually purchase for myself, maybe to sneak into my Christmas stocking... Thank you!

  43. Maya,
    After your kind response to my questions about "Wee Folk" I went right to Amazon and tucked the book into my Wish List. Then I came back here and saw Salley's comment about her new book, "Pocketful of Posies" and I went back and put that book into my Wish List too. My 2 yr. old grandgirl will LOVE it for Christmas (and so will I).

    I'm excited to go visiting Salley's blog. I adore her work and would love to embroider some projects using her pictures as inspiration.

    I'm so glad you two found each other and shared it with all of us.

    Just the right timing!
    I hope you're thriving,

    Lisa and Zelia

  169. I really love her work too! I'm off to find it through the library, but would love to join the drawing. Thanks.

    PS We have another book from the library with beautiful fabric and embroidery pictures that is worth taking a look at. It is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs adapted by Joan Aiken and illustrated by Belinda Downes. I'm sure you will love it almost as much as Sally Mavor's works.

  173. I have never added comment before online but I wanted you to know that your site on my homepage gives me a little bit of craft-y joy each day. I am not very talented but am terribly enthusiastic and seeing these fabulous books has inspired me - One day, I am determined to make a family heirloom just as exquisite for my four children to have stitched and woven into the fabric of their childhood memories. Even if I never own the book - thank you so much for introducing us to it and for the ongoing inspiration. x
