Edith Flack Ackley a legend now and in her own time.
Dedicating remembrance here on my blog to my favorite cloth doll maker Edith Flack Ackley a cloth doll designer and maker. Inspiration to cloth doll-makers now, past, and future generations yet to come.
Edith Ackley has inspired so many artists/dollmakers since the publication of her first books and patterns. Edith's dolls and patterns have their very own extremely distinctive style ,
I first discovered her when purchasing her
over the country, who like to sew and make things and
who would like to earn a little extra money".
