Announcement   Christmas is coming......are you thinking ahead?

I can not believe it is already September 1st. Where has the time gone? It seems the faster I sew, the faster the orders are flying off the shelves. Please....shop early. I absolutely hate to say no to any request but the closer we get to Christmas the greater the possibility is that this will happen.

If something that you would like to purchase is not available on Etsy right now....just send me a convo and I will make every effort to custom make it for you.

Remember in Grandma's Sewing Room there is never an extra charge for custom, the only restriction is time and fabric availability.

By the way, the First Class shipping option is a great hit. Most of you are choosing that option when available and saving tons of money for just a few extra days till delivery. Just so that you know, if you order more than one item I will always make an effort to combine items into one shipping process and any overages will be refunded.

Have fun shopping!

About

Handmade by Grandma

When I retired after twenty-five years working for AT&T I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, I just knew that I did not want to carry a briefcase anymore, I did not want to wear highheels anymore and I really did not want to travel to places I did not care to be anymore....but if someone had told me I would be making doll clothes, I probably would have asked them what they were smoking.

I did not own a sewing machine and I had no background in design but I did have a little granddaughter. I overheard a conversation between my granddaughter and a little friend about how their shapes differed from Barbies and I knew I wanted to do something to take the influence off of body shapes....for heaven's sake, they were only four years old.

I started by making her "My Best Friend' a large cloth doll with yarn hair and a painted face and little girl style clothes. When I gave it to her I told her that this could be a friend who could listen to her secrets, snuggle under the covers with and dream about tomorrow. I went on to make the 'My Best Friend' doll for sale for several years.

While are craft shows I kept hearing about the American Girl doll. I liked the concept. I had already become hooked on sewing and decided to tackle some clothes that were appropriate for this type of doll. There were several similar dolls on the market that could also wear the same size clothes. People loved what I made and I found that I really preferred to create my own designs....and so began "Grandma's Sewing Room'. I make clothes that are stylish enough to keep the girl's happy but still appeal to the Moms and Grandmothers who would buy them.

It has been 20 years since I retired (yeah, I was pretty young to retire....52) and I am still going strong. The girls never fail to inspire me. With the internet, I now have customers across the globe and I love hearing their stories.

Who would have ever believed this could happen because of two little girls talking about their boobies!
