As a child I made doll clothes out of scraps of fabrics. I learned to sew on my Grandmother’s old treadle sewing machine. Because of my love of old things such as quilts and linens, designing and making “Quilt Dolls” adorned with old buttons and lace came to be. It is both rewarding and thrilling to make something beautiful out of something tattered, worn and no longer usable. It is my way of recycling.
