Because of my Aunt Kathleen, my mother’s youngest sister,

Because my mother in law always said “We are here to be good to each other”

Because I was blessed with the chance to illustrate this beautiful book for Shereee Fitch

Because I want the rugs to have some meaning

I have decided to have them auctioned off and all the proceeds will go to L’arche Atlantic

L’Arche is an international federation of communities where men and women with intellectual disabilities, and those who choose to share life with them, live and work together.

Founded by Canadian Jean Vanier in 1964, L’Arche now has more than 125 communities in 40 countries. In Atlantic Canada there are currently five established L’Arche communities: L’Arche AntigonishL’Arche Cape BretonL’Arche HalifaxL’Arche Homefires and L’Arche Saint John.

There are two groups currently working to build new L’Arche communities in Atlantic Canada: Willow Tree Community, Fredericton, NB and Cornerstone Housing Society, St. John’s, NL.

Bid on the rugs here!

and support L’Arche Atlantic


Here are Sheree and I and Andrea at The Halifax book Launch!

  1. Hi Deanne
    Saw Sherri at the Antigonish library last night. She read the book to our hooking group. What a treat!
    On the auction site the #9 rug with the apple is upside down. I wish you could have heard the group comments on your work, teaching, business smarts and overall “funness” Any way, just thought you’d like to know the book was very much admired and the reading a treat.
    All the best


  2. Wonderful rugs Deanne!
    What a magical combination you and Sherri make. Haven’t seen the actual book yet but I was wondering if rug #9 is upside down or if the page is perhaps just showing an upside down view to complement the poem.
    Can’t wait to see the book. All the best and Congratulations!
