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.

Please Pardon Me





Oh my!  Soooooo long since my last post.  So sorry about that!  We had stuff happen, like new grandbabies, kitchen remodel, international travel to celebrate 40 years of wedded bliss, etc!  Time sure flies past fast when you are having fun....and grandbabies.

What's been happening doll wise?  Our regular Thursday doll making group that meets at Attic Window Quilt Shop in Comstock Park, MI. has been having lots of fun making all sorts of things.  We made some zipper compartment bags to hold lots of nice little doll making tools, a classmate tote with vinyl pouches, and some quilts. Yes, we took a little break over the summer for non doll things.

A few of us that had  Little Red Riding Hood kits from Gail Wilson just finished or in my case almost finished making them.  Very Cute. Big Bad (wolf) is exceptionally handsome. But don't stand too close; he licks.

To visit Gail Wilson's website to see Little Red, click here and go to oldies but still goodies and page down to "in case you are looking".  There is a link to click on to see the picture of Little Red and Big Bad.

In October, we plan on making a hedgehog and maybe a teddy bear.  Teddy will be made, just not sure if it's going to be soon or next year.  So if you have nothing better to do, stop by and see what's going on at Attic Window Quilt Shop.  We are an open group bee on Thursday and although we usually do doll things, we have several folks that come and bring non doll things to work on.  The fee for all the Thursdays in the month is $5.00 for class room use. We hope to see you there.

On the first two Thursdays in November, I will offer Gail Wilson's Mini Snowman class.  The pattern is $9.50 and the class is just the bee fee of $5.00.  And yes, you get to come every Thursday in November if you want. Think of how many snowmen you could make!   The class is offered Nov 5 and/or Nov 12, 2015.  Please sign up a few weeks ahead of time, so we have time to get the patterns.
