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.

The New York Doll

Hello Dollmakers!
   
     Last Thursday at Attic Window Quilt Shop, we had our last class for Gail Wilson’s New York Doll. She’s the lovely primitive doll with the separate fingers. I figured out I could scan her hand pattern into my embroidery machine and Voila! It does all the hard sewing around those small fingers!

Although I’ll be taking the summer off to care for grandchildren, our dollmaking group will still gather on Thursdays at Attic Window Quilt Shop to finish up their NY Dolls.  The address is 5363 Alpine Ave NW, Comstock Park, MI. 49321.  If you need it, the phone number is 616-785-3357.

We have been talking about what doll we would like to do next in the fall.  Sounds like it will be Gail’s Raggedy Ann and Andy. I’ll be doing some of the tiny ones.

Have some doll fun today!

I didn’t see the tiny ones on Gail’s site, but here’s the link to one set. http://www.gailwilsondesigns.com/all_page_content/cloth_dolls_3.html
