  • New "girl" on the block

    Just registered and looking forward to "meeting" some like minded people
    I lived in the Shetland islands for some years and only returned to England [North Yorkshire] in 2010 so my local contacts are few and very far between.
    I am a textile dollmaker of many years experience and specalise in collectable dolls i.e. brides,bridesmaids, special birthday dolls etc.
    I've just started a new line of DIY dolls - the customer gets a button jointed calico doll [approx 11" tall] with hair and a hand painted face together with a mini carrier bag of fabric and assorted trims and some basic sewing instructions so they can create their own doll costume. I made some up as an experiment just before Christmas 2012 and sold the lot at a craft fair - could have probably sold twice as many!
    I don't have a website as my current income from the dolls does not bring in sufficient funds to warrant one, but I have just started supplying a small local retail outlet specalising in "girly" type gifts and am hopefull this will be a success.
    I would love to hear from any other textile doll maker in the North Yorkshire area - so far I seem to be one of very few.....is there anyone out there?

      Hello and welcome - I work with textiles but not dolls. Your DIY dolls sound a great idea

              Lovely to see you here. I craft in fabrics but a million miles from beautiful dolls. Look forward to chatting.
