Spring Market Vendor Profile: Ashley Spires

I started making finger puppets years ago. Each one is hand felted on an antique wash-
board and then the details are added through needle felting. I sold them across Canada for a time,
but when my illustration career picked up, my focus shifted. I've been working full
time as an author/illustrator for six years now and I would like the opportunity to sell some
of my original artwork from my books and I'd love to do some good old-fashioned crafting
again. Plus, I figured out how to make a Narwhal finger puppet and I'd like to share that
with the world.

  1. Didn't I see Zooey Deschanel with your puppets in a magazine a while back?
