Jan 13 Greetings... Today, I finally, FINALLY found a book to show me how to make cloth dolls that made sense...Introduction to Cloth Dolls. I had about given up and then there you were , compliments of the local library. NOW, I will buy the book. I've bought books, went on the web, and seemed to have exhausted anywhere to get a book that told it all and not some author who didn't pull back in hopes of selling another book later to finish what should have been included in the FIRST book. Thank you so much for making my life less stressful and not so expensive...lol I shall keep watching your website for any new books or anything else you come up with. Sincerely, Dolores Bennett

Dec 10 A long-awaited how-to-do-it book from Jan Horrox, already well-known in the world of cloth dolls. Using the full-size templates provided, and following Jan's detailed instructions, three basic dolls can be created. Clear, step-by-step colour photographs guide the maker through all aspects of construction. The fun part is the dressing and decoration of the doll and Jan suggests many ways of using varied craft techniques to achieve a unique character. This is a colourful and reasonably-priced book, containing a wealth of information; a must-have volume for anyone wishing to create their own totally individual doll.
