about my books


In 2013 Hawthorn Press  released Making Peg Dolls.  It's 192 pages of peg doll love, with patterns for over 60 different doll designs, step by step instructions, and everything!  The book can be ordered from The Book Depository, Bookstore at Rudolf Steiner College, Steiner Books, Waldorf BooksBooktopia, Amazon, or your favorite local book seller. The book is also carried by retailers who specialize in Waldorf Education and natural craft supplies such as Bella Luna Toys and A Child's Dream Come True.

Here's an animated trailer for the book.
It was fun to make & I hope you will like it, too.

And now, for more peg doll fun, my new book set to be released end of January 2015 is titled Making Peg Dolls & More. The premise behind the new book is this:  I wanted to bring peg dolls off the shelf and out of the doll house to spin, fly and travel about in the larger world.   Between the covers of the book there are patterns for dolls to sit on your pincushion & help mind your stitches, dolls flying through the air on dragons and bright winged birds, dolls to accompany children through the day as they face the world and through the night as they dream on their pillows, plus many more lovely projects.

Making Peg Dolls & More is now available for pre-order from Book Depository, UK.  The release date in the UK will be 2 months prior to the worldwide release; this means that, even if you live outside the UK, you can get the book in December if you order from Book Depository (and Book Depository offers free shipping worldwide)!


  1. So excited to start making peg dolls, your book looks amazing! Im in love! i have a passion for craft and trying to see what im best at, would love to start a little buisness so if it went anywhere i could give profits to charity! (to much passion and imagination completely out of reach!)

  2. I ordered your book as soon as I could in Holland! Today it received it and ... it made my day! Thank you for sharing your lovely peg dolls with us! I can't wait to try and make them myself. I am a teacher and I would love to use them in my class! Cheers, Barbara
