Playing with fabric
It was important to my family that I be a stay-at-home mom. We lived miles from the nearest employment opportunities and since I've always loved playing with fabric and my sewing machine a friend suggested I make things to sell. I'd made dolls for my children and nieces and nephews so that was the direction I took.
I started my dollmaking business in 1980 with the leftover fabrics I had on hand and patterns I found in books at the library. For the first few years, I used the profits from each sale to purchase more materials and supplies and eventually I even purchased patterns. I was not satisfied with the patterns that were available (I wanted something a little different than what was available but I still purchase patterns to learn new techniques) so I began designing my own.
And here I am!
Around the web
Thanks to my mother, I started sewing before I started kindergarten. I got my first sewing machine when I was 7 and haven't been without one since then. I love to design and make primitive and folk art dolls and critters.
All of my creations are made of fabric. Most are stained, some are painted, see the description of each for details. I use recycled fabrics whenever I can and it'll be in the description when I do.
