Great needles, a teensy bit of a hiccup on the shipping but they arrived and are great.

About

Woolboro

Growing up in Europe, I gained insight into Waldorf education where I learned doll making and the art of felting. Even though I learned to knit, crochet and sew while I was young. I didn't love handwork until I wanted to make beautiful creations for my own children. Now I can't imagine my hands, my heart and my mind to not be creative.

​ As a child I loved playing with dolls; Playing and caring for them hours on end, hidden in my corner behind a large upholstered chair in the family room.

I taught doll making to children and provided doll-making workshops to adults. As a result of this exposure, I was introduced to the art of felting and I fell in love with creating wonderful art with wool.

Early in 2006 WoolCreations® (now known as Woolboro) was born and immediately became a big part of my life. It is something I can share with children and adults worldwide; now many of you can enjoy my art and your children can experience the feeling of warmth and love from my wonderful designs and dolls. My customers are parents, children and even collectors! I pour my heart, imagination, skill and time into every WoolCreations®. One of a kind and handmade; you're sure to enjoy! Everything I make comes with its own personality and is inspired by personal life experiences, wishes, and dreams.

I welcome custom orders. When I first started with my business I believed that customs would limit my creativity, but I learned quickly that my customer bring out the best in me. I will listen to your wishes and, with a little bit of creative freedom, come up with your custom order. My goal is to take your vision and deliver your design. I promise I will do my best to that end, but please allow for my personal interpretation of your unique ideas.

Please contact me if you have any questions about Woolboro, I love to hear what you think. You are also welcome to ask for help if you are working on your own creation; I am happy to help if I can.

UPDATE: after years of development I call the dolls I make Ringalina Dolls, my woolen felted creations WoolCreations, and also created online doll making courses that I refer to as Hands Create. All my creations and courses now live in the settlement of Woolboro. Please be sure to take a trip for a visit to www.woolboro.com

I hope you enjoy your visit,

Annette
