Fellow Doll Maker Spotlight :: Annadoll's House




There are so many gorgeous Waldorf dolls out there. All that you have to do is do a search through Etsy for "Waldorf doll" and you are inundated with thousand and thousands of hits. And they are all stunning and unique and precious. SO many beautifully crafted dolls by some unbelievably gifted artists.
Many of these doll makers have inspired us in our own doll creating.

We realized that not all mamas are able to sew for their little ones, and we only have so many dolls to give away here at Windfall Dolls.  Many mamas are looking for a high quality, handmade doll to gift their loved ones with.

That is where the Doll Maker Spotlight comes into play.

Recently, we were thinking of ways to support our fellow doll makers. We thought that it might be fun to invite other doll makers to introduce their shops and goods to those families who visit our site.

So, if you are are looking to buy a beautifully handmade doll we welcome you to stop by over the next few months while we spotlight several of these talented independent artists as they share their stories and their love of doll making.

This interview was done with the help of a translator since Anna is from Latvia.
