When I first started making miniature dolls, I learned from trial and error, and a wonderful (now defunct) online group named TINY TALK. This same group literally put me back into business after my 1998 house fire with donations, supplies and tag team - driving effort that delivered a kiln to my door step.
In appreciation and thankx, I have created an online group (minidollLIST); webezine (Frills & Fancy) and travel the world teaching live classes. My goal is to provide anyone, anywhere, with ANY BUDGET the skills necessary to create miniature dolls. And through the kindness of our MDL group of 1500+ members, we are passing along scholarships, supplies and RAK donations to people in many countries all over the world. I couldn't have started all this, if not for my late, great friend Lesa G.
