"As a textile artist living on E. Queen St. for 10 years, I became fascinated by the Handmade Parade. The puppets became like friends to me when I worked on bringing to life their colors, textures, and emotions with hand-painted fabric and thread.

 

I love the thought of our community working together to make the Handmade Parade such a joyful event. The fourth piece in the series, I created, Let the Sun Shine In, to celebrate HIllsborough's weird, whimsical, and wonderful Handmade Parade.

 

The proceeds of this raffle go to support the Hillsborough Arts Council and all they do for the town of Hillsborough.

 

Thank you for your support!" - Ali Givens
