Mimidolls Christmas Sale – 20% off, free shipping on orders of $35.

I’ve finally got the ETSY store straightened out. We added a lot of ultrasuede and other fabrics in time for Black Friday, but people complained that they didn’t need 2 yards (or 10 yards) of ultrasuede for doll clothes, so I’ve rearranged everything for fat quarters. There’s ultrasuede, wool, jersey knit, and Uki Atai fabric from Japan.

Anyway, the sale runs until the end of the year, and EVERYTHING is at least 20% off the original prices. Some of the fabric was already 50% off of retail on Amazon, and you can get most of it in fat quarters. There’s also free shipping to USA on orders of $35 or more.

Stop by and visit!

In a few days, I will also be adding some of the dolls from Mimi’s collection including many by NIADA artists and ODACA artists.

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving.

Season’s Greetings!

Happy Dolling!

Surface Design and Wearable Art

We’re moving from a 5 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment. We can’t take everything. Lots of Mimi’s books are for sale in the Studio Sale announced last week.

Since last week, we’ve added over 80 more books to the studio sale. Some excellent books on Native American culture, and particularly Hopi Kachina dolls are in the Inspiration subcategory. Most of the others are in one of two new subcategories: Surface Design and Wearable Art.

Surface design includes painting, piecing, dyeing, batik, tie-dye, texturizing and other methods used to alter the appearance of fabric or textiles.

Wearable art includes not only the doll jackets designed by elinor peace bailey and Virginia Robertson, but also quilted, pieced, painted, and other clothing and accessories. Some is very elegant, some will be perfect for your own expression.

There are also new books in the Art Books subcategory. These include everything from flower painting to animal anatomy.

Most prices are less than 50% of what these books cost elsewhere. We only have one (or sometimes two) of each book, so get what you want before it’s gone. After you’ve finished shopping, be sure and tell your friends who might like to get in on the savings.
