Handmade. Custom. One of a Kind.

From the Pear Tree was founded in February 2011, when life as a single parent required exploring other avenues to bring income for my family. I was deeply involved in the handmade doll community; a worldwide community of women who valued handmade products, not only for their children, but also for themselves. The dolls sparked my inner child, my love for playing dress up and interacting with a wide variety of amazing women. I met so many friends, many whom I have never met “in real life”, they are all friends still the same.

As my love for this community grew, so did my creative juices. I wanted clothes for my... I mean “our” dolls. So I started sewing... and sewing and sewing. And I started posting what I created in the community. The response was overwhelming. And From the Pear Tree was born!

Later in 2011, Fig & Me Dolls released the Papoose pattern and I was fortunate to be one of the few to become a recommended vendor. My passion for colour and pattern and design took off and the Papoose became my most popular and requested product.

With permission, I scaled the pattern down to fit smaller dolls as well. I added bassinets and Moses baskets a short time later, as well as a variety of totes and multipurpose bags. Dolly & Me clothing and aprons were also a huge hit! As is my ever popular M2M MJC line (Made to Match Matilda Jane).

As my business has matured and the marketplace has changed, I continue to make aprons as well as multipurpose bags and totes. I began a new adventure in 2015, selling SeneGence skincare and cosmetics (Empowered Beauty Canada), and new textile products are being added along those same lines. If it needs carrying, and its a bag, I love making it. I can not wait to share all of the new things that are coming to From the Pear Tree!!
