This pincushion doll has been designed as a special token of love for my dearest friend Gigi Ries, a wonderful woman full of taste with an exquisite collection of antique samplers and a deep passion for needleart. Gigi loves to reproduce her samplers and she has a Company called GigiR Designs.
The doll is available from BrierRose under the name of Gretal.
A unique miniature chatelaine has been made for this doll by my friend Roberta Dazzini (available for purchase at Giulia Punti Antichi).
