The birth of a business
Almost three decades ago, my daughter received an 18" heritage doll that not only became her favorite playmate, but also inspired me to follow in my grandmother's and great-grandmother's footsteps and use my sewing talents to gain extra pocket money. As my small hobby grew, I found myself in need of a career that would allow me to care for my child who had chronic health issues and also earn a single parent's income. 

Inspired and supported by local friends, I began selling my garments at weekly craft fairs. Eventually, I began participating at larger juried shows.
Years have flown by and have seen many changes in my life and career. I am proud that my daughter, Amanda has reached for the stars and has embraced a career in academia.  I remarried, and my husband John and I enjoy the same passion for travel.  John and Amanda take turns helping at the various venues where I show my doll garments.

Almost twenty years ago, I designed this website for local shoppers to preview merchandise and for distance customers to purchase from. I have decided it is time for me to update this site, so if you have visited before, you may notice some changes. If you need help navigating it, please do not hesitate to contact me! You can now also find favorite fashions and debut designs on my Etsy shop: EtsyADB.

Whether you are shopping online, at a show or visiting my home-based boutique, I strive to give you not only the quality expected from a hand-crafted garment but to have you leave my business loving dolls just a little bit more than when you arrived! ​​
