I got the telephone call and they were able to transfer over all my files. Now begins a new learning curve. I have to say the computer is beautiful and so fast, How did I put up with that slow old thing?
Back when I was in my early 20's I used to make soft dolls and animals. I sold these to a gift shop in Sydney and the demand got so big I had to get my flat mates to help. This was in addition to my day job as a Fashion Buyer for a department store. Then I decided I thought I might like to open a coffee bar so I worked a second job to learn how to do this and couldn't make toys anymore. Besides, when I did the math the dolls weren't making very much profit but they were rather neat dolls.
Fast forward to today and I chanced upon the site of Fig and Me and here is someone in Canada making dolls AND getting a decent price for them. On top of that there is such a demand if you want to buy one you have to go into a random draw to be selected.
These look like Steiner inspired dolls and range in size from little babies to the size of a child.
It makes me think I might take up doll making again. No. Been there, done that. I might make a couple for my grand daughters but other than that I will just look at what the younger generation can do.
