Reflections: 2013 Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival

Singily Skipping Along ... Book Launch at 2013 Festival

Cookies and Milk ... Parents and Children ... Fibre Artists and Authors .... they all gathered at Deanne Fitzpatrick's Studio on Church Street on Friday afternoon, Oct. 18, to launch 'Singily Skipping Along' , a delightful children's book with text by author, Sheree Fitch, and illustrations by rug-hooking artist, Deanne Fitzpatrick.

 The multi-age audience was enthralled by Sheree's dramatic reading of her imaginative verse and the joyful hooked-rugs created by Deanne to illustrate the text. Young and 'not-so-young' - all were smiling - books were shared - and memories made - as the 2013 Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival celebrated "Singily Skipping Along', the product of a collaboration between two talented artists.
Thanks to Sheree and Deanne for this vibrant beautiful book!
