Note from shop owner Welcome to Alkelda Dolls! I am taking a break from making felt dolls for sale on Etsy, but am available to do custom orders. Please feel welcome to browse the past items for sale, and read the nice comments others have left. I had a wonderful time making dolls for people of all ages.

Doll-Maker, Storyteller

Alkelda Dolls is a shop devoted to dolls for storytelling, display, and creative play.

Like Goldie in M.B. Goffstein's Goldie the Dollmaker, I devote time and care with each doll. Every doll I send out into the world has its own personal story. In keeping with the diversity of the Earth's population, my dolls display a range of skin-tones, hair hues and eye colors.

Here is the Indie Artist Spotlight of Alkelda Dolls that Jama's Alphabet Soup featured in June 2013:

I am honored when you decide to bring one of my dolls into your home. I enjoy hearing from people, too. Please feel welcome to send me a note about the stories and dolls in your lives.

Greetings! Welcome to Alkelda Dolls, a shop devoted to dolls for storytelling, display, and gentle play.

I craft each of my creations by hand, with high quality natural materials like wool and cotton. I use some wool-rayon blends too (rayon is wood-based). In keeping with the diversity of the Earth's population, my nature table figures display a range of skin-tones, hair hues and eye colors. I am honored when you decide to bring one of my dolls into your home.
