SUMMARY: The first twelve issues were put out by Mildred Seeley, who started this run. Then was bought and put out by the same family who have faithfully put out "Doll Castle News" since 1961. "The Dollmaker" lasted about 8 years(I think). Each issue has a simple clothing pattern, features a doll artist, and gives some industry news. The interior is strictly black-and-white, but has professional production values and was printed on good quality paper stock. The magazine's primary focus was porcelain dolls.

I'M still missing about 1 issue of this run, assuming they ended publication with Issue 51. I'm waiting for confirmation from Mr. Mueller, who is still quite busy publishing "Doll Castle News". He has a great website with history of the Mueller family and their magazines. Go see for yourself. Doll Castle News can be subscribed to at: http://www.dollcastlemagazine.com/.

Anyone with more information about this publication, or has issues to donate or sell, can contact me through My Contact Page.

NOTES: My copy appears to be missing the 9" rag doll pattern claimed in the Table of Contents, but those pages tend to be numbered in other issues, and my issue isn't missing any numbered pages, so maybe it came as a separate page? If you have this issue and know the answer, please let me know.
