News from the “handmade dolls scene”
Yes, the so-called handmade dolls scene evolved and there is no halt. Lately there were some news which I would like to briefly share with you here …:
- The wonderful Megan McGinnis of “Mon Petit Frère” just recently has published a PDF pattern book for her very charming Petite Fleur dolls on Etsy. With the help of this 39-page PDF, which includes many photos and clear step by step instructions, you too can easily make one sweet little doll:
- Facebook is not only bad. No, seriously as annoying as the social media sometimes may be, it also can be a connection to positive paths. Therefore I am very pleased that Sandra of Junikate has recently launched a Facebook group for us professional doll makers. Some nice dollmaking colleagues have already joined the group and it is a nice cooperation and a productive exchange. I’m always an advocate of networking and collaboration – especially when you share a common passion for dolls…
- Certainly by now everyone has heared this news already, not at least because Maria has already announced so in her blog – Kamrin of Kamrin’s Poppenatelier for the first time this year organized the European Waldorf Doll seminar on “Traditional and Modern Waldorf Inspired Doll Making” from 30 April to May 1 in the Netherlands.
Originally I would also have participated and was asked to give a workshop on needle felting doll faces there, but unfortunately another “small project” interfered with this plans ;> and datewise collides somewhat with the event. This really is a shame because I’m sure it will be a wonderful and unforgettable event. I can only hope that Kamrin still saves a spot for me next year…;)
Anyone wanting to participate, should get in touch with Kamrin asap to secure some tickets:
