Mary Pinckney's Profile
For as long as I can remember, I've always enjoyed drawing, home decorating and crafting. I learned how to sew by watching my mother and as a young adult I used this skill to make many of my "going out" clothes. I must say, even by 1960s standards, some of my creations were extremely fashion forward!
As a mother, I also ended up creating outfits for my children and eventually I became interested in the challenge of making dolls and bears. I did my research, checked out books and bought doll making patterns. They seemed kind of complicated at the time, but I took my time and made my first doll.
I was not very outgoing, so it took me a while to even show people what I was creating. Eventually I took some of my creations to work and my co-workers seemed astounded by my hidden doll making talent. This was a huge boost of encouragement…
