About us

My passion for needlework started when I was about five years old. I lived in several countries due to my partly Asian origin. I had needlework lessons in Asia, later in England and the Netherland as it was compulsory class at school. 

When I was 15 during my schooling in England, I made a children’s night dress for an O-level needlework exam. There were numerous details that I made such as smocking and handmade button holes. Sadly this was destroyed in a fire during the school holidays.

I started making Waldorf dolls when my children attended kindergarten at the Waldorf School. When the school offered parent grouping creative sessions, I became interested and instantly discovered how enjoyable it was to work with natural materials and to create dolls.

I became more familiar with the world of Waldorf dolls through the Guild of Doll makers. After learning a lot of different techniques from several well-known Dutch doll makers I started making customized dolls and during this time I gave children's creative classes and tutorials for dollmaking. My supplies in dollmaking articles then increased making the living-room look like a store.  

Since 2002 we live in an idyllic house with an attached studio, in Oegstgeest, the Netherlands. As the materials and articlesgradually increased the studio has now become a shop in creative articles and toys.
