Exploring Folk Art with Wool Appliqué & More, the book I co-wrote with my mother, Rebekah L. Smith, is one rooted in friendship and community. So when we were talking about what kind of an event to do as a book launch, we knew it had to involve our friends. So many people worked with us on the book, and so we thought, wouldn't it be fun to get them all together? But we couldn't stop there. So we made space for loyal followers and readers to join us in celebrating the launch.
