PUBLISHER, but scanned from my private collection.

SUMMARY: This magazine showcases various dollmakers, gives show reports, and offers a few patterns in each issue. It's printed on very cheap newsprint, including the cover, so the color and detail is a bit blurry. All the resource information is dated now, but at the time was spot on. I enjoyed reading through the three issues I found, and I'll probably pick up others if I run across them. If you're looking for a collector's journal, this probably isn't going to cut it for you, but as a crafter, it was a good read.

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