Hello doll lovers! This blog was created to tell you about dolls I have made and classes I teach on doll making at Attic Window Quilt Shop in Comstock Park, Michigan (a suburb of Grand Rapids). My goal in teaching is to pass on the love of making heirloom quality dolls. Most of the dolls I make (and hold classes for) are designed by Gail Wilson - visit her website at www.gailwilsondesigns.com . Page down my blog for some fun doll links including antique doll sites and hard to find doll supplies.

Needlework Doll



Today I started making the sample doll for the next class: Gail Wilson's Needlework doll. She is a 10" cloth doll with a mohair wig and netting or crochet snood. Her face is easily accomplished with colored pencils. The pattern for this doll is $18.00 and you can get your clothing materials at Attic Window the day of the class. You can view more information about this doll on Gail's Website in the New Items section. Click on the title above and it will take you to Gail's site and then page down to the needlework doll.

If you are interested in the class, please sign up by Jan 10th and let me know on the sign up sheet if you need me to get you a pattern and mohair or the full kit that is available for $42.

The dates of the classes are Jan 21 & 28 and Feb 4 & 18.

Emma and Charlotte will be offered Feb 25th, March 4, 18 & 25. Emma is an oil painted doll and Charlotte is her black companion, also painted with oils. We use Alkyd oils, which dry overnight. Please visit the link below for more information about Emma and Charlotte.
