If you get a chance to take a class from Terese - don't hesitate to sign up, because her classes fill up fast. Terese is so energetic and fun - her stories leave you in "stitches" and her sewing tips are great - I wish she would jot them down and publish a book on just her sewing tips. I owned a sewing business for 30 years and I am usually the one giving out sewing tips at quilting get-togethers. I learned so much from Terese in her doll class - things that I use in my everyday sewing and quilting. I use her book as a reference guide - and have shown pages of her book to others that have questions because her book is so well illustrated, showing step by step directions, leaving no questions as to what the directions mean. My friends are impressed by the doll that I made, I have it displayed prominently on a chair in my living room, and am always asked "Where did you buy that?" The comment is always of disbelief - because I am a quilter, not a doll maker, and I'm always asked "Where can I take a class?". Thank you Terese for giving me inspiration.

For anyone who thinks they know how to make a doll . . . you don't until you take a class from Terese. Her book is fabulous and goes into great detail for all the little things you couldn't possibly remember so I keep the book handy to use as a reference when I'm sewing. The talents that Terese shares are great and never ending as she is constantly sharing something new. As a person, Terese has a heart of gold.
