Have you been inspired to create a little friend yourself? I teach one-day and multi-day workshops, and all my workshops are custom designed to fit the needs and interests of each particular group or individual.

I host most workshops in either Westchester County, NY or Connecticut, but if you're interested in gathering together a group of doll-making friends, a workshop can also come your way!

Please feel free to contact me to discuss details.
