Since I was a little girl I have had a love for sewing and dolls. I started sewing when I was five years old. I began with doll clothes and I have sewn for Barbies to Baby Dolls ever since, which is over 40 years.
Dolls are a part of human history and we can learn much about people, their fashions and values, throughout the decades and even though the centuries by observing them. My aim is to bring back bygone eras through vintage dolls and reproduction fashions.

To accomplish that I draw from my large collection of vintage doll patterns, a research into the dolls history and my experience as a one time child. I try to share a bit of their history in my descriptions. Of course, they have their own special stories and secrets to tell. Perhaps they will bring a memory back to mind that you want to share. Perhaps you may hear one whisper to you and 'she' comes to life in your heart. Remember, these dolls are a part of our past, our history. We can have a share in giving them a new home, a new heart to love them and a future of new stories yet to be told.
Be sure to take time to read the descriptions, to remember and to dream.
