Artist directory :: BLUEBIRD TEXTILES

Reproduction antique doll clothes made for Bleuette or other similar 11" antique dolls. Using the original patterns from La Semaine De Suzette (a French magazine for children 1905-1958) I re-create costumes using the finest fabrics,lace,hand embellishment.



Bluebird Textiles 
Working with fabric and thread by quilting, sewing, weaving, and dyeing I find myself connected to a history of “women's work” with a needle and thread. Traditionally we made functional items for our family for survival of the elements. Yet by making them objects of beauty, they are handed down from generation to generation providing the survival of a family's history; one of love and labour, sacrifice and celebration. My skills at dressing Bleuette are a culmination of over forty years of textile endeavors. My story has come full circle from when my mother taught me, at the tender age of five, how to embroider. After years of sewing, quilting, weaving and dyeing, I find myself once again, simply sitting quietly with needle in hand, as I work to embellish...
