Free class give away this month!



I'm very excited to offer my first blog giveaway. I am offering my 1812 online class FREE to three people who comment on my blog in January.

Yes, all you have to do is comment on any of my blog posts this month and you will be entered in the draw. Please make sure you add your email to your comment, so I know how to find you!

The class explains how to create a period costume for a doll. It can be any doll. I guide you through the process of creating the costume, cap and shoes, step by step.


If you want a preview of the class, you can see it on my web site. Just click the link on this page and follow the links to see a preview. It takes a few seconds to load, so be patient! http://www.edwinadolls.com

  4. Yeah Edwina ... a Canadian doll maker... I've been sculpting paper 3- dolls since childhood and have just recently taken the challenge to make cloth dolls. I love all history and dolly things... and I'm so happy to find someone close to home who creates.... Nice vintage doll by the way ..love the lacy hat lamp accessory.

    I looked to see if I had any of your patterns but alas I have not at this date... so I will have to do some research on your gallery... Right now ..I wish to do some blog reading and maybe glean some wonderful information about the Canadian Doll maker association on your site.... my e-mail is roslindca@yahoo.ca /Thanks

  6. Can't pass up your generous offer! I visit your blog often but I just look! Wonderful doll! Costuming is my least favorite part of dollmaking - mostly because it's my most lacking skill. :)

  7. Costuming is my favorite part in the process of making a doll..playing with the fabrics and trims..selecting what works best for my projects is like being an Art Detective..find the one who "really did it" and being as historically as possible is not an easy task..but one you master beautifully every time! You can find me at scampsmom1953@yahoo.com
