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.

Meet Baby Samantha

Hi Dollmakers!  I have been busy enjoying my newest  grandbaby, Samantha!  She arrived March 21, 2012.  She is a cute little redhead and is so sweet. She is starting to smile now.  I enjoy babysitting her every Monday thru Wednesday. 

What else have I been up to?  I have been checking in at the New Inspirations of Art Studio on 28th Street in Cascade.  http://www.inspirationsofartstudio.com/
This a a cool place to come and have some fun!  Or just get away to play, create, meet other crafty people, or try your hand at a new thing.  Next time you have some dry cleaning to drop off (yes, there is a terrific dry cleaning spot right next door), check into the art studio.

Oh - just remembered - they have asked me to teach the Penny Rug Santa class at Inspirations of Art Studio. So for those of you who wanted to make PRSanta and missed it last time, here is your chance.  The class starts July 27, but please sign up 2-3 weeks in advance so that we have time to get your kit.  If you already have a kit, no worry to sign up in advance. 

At Attic Window, we are just bee-ing for the summer.  Any one is welcome, bring anything (doll or other project) you wish to work on.  The fee is $5.00 for the whole month of Thursdays.

Starting the first week in September, we will be holding class for Gail Wilson's 14" portrait Izannah Doll .   This is the one that is all cloth (no stockinette) and is painted in oils.  Classes for this doll will be the first and third Thursdays of September and October.  Later in the year we hope to make the cotton ornament dolls. View the kit information for these dolls on Gail's website: www.GailWilsonDesigns.com
PRS is in the Christmas section
Portrait Izannah and cotton ornaments are in the new section.

Have a great summer vacation and have some doll fun!  Thanks for stopping by - Julie
