This Sunday, April 10, 2016, salons in Boston are joining with salons across the country in the 7th Annual HAIRraising Cut-a-Thon raising money for Boston Children's Hospital Heart Center. All the proceeds will go to the Heart Center.

Some of the salons are also running raffles to raise more money.
Marisa Marino, the owner of Stiliste Salon on Newbury Street, Boston, MA, heard that I make Waldorf type dolls. She asked if I would make 2 dolls to raffle for HAIRraising. Of course!
To the right are photos of the 2 dolls being raffled. Each doll is 15 inches tall and is wearing a dress, hand knit sweater, felt clogs, underwear and tights. (See right side bar for more information about the dolls and the clothing). If you would like to purchase a raffle ticket for a doll, call Stiliste Salon at 617-262-2234 through the month of April, 2016. Ask to speak to the receptionist when you call and tell her you want to buy a raffle ticket for a doll.
Good luck if you join the raffle. And thanks!! It's for a great cause.
Details about the dolls:
Doll: 15 inches tall. The doll pattern is my own design, based on typical Waldorf-type dolls. The skin is 100% cotton knit fabric imported from the Netherlands. The stuffing is virgin wool roving. Hair is wool yarn. Safety: They are only for children age 3 and older.
- Sweater: hand knit. Pattern is the Bamboletta Cuddle Doll/Baby Sweater
- Dress and Felt clogs: my original patterns

The doll may be spot cleaned or hand-washed in wool friendly soap. Rinse and air dry. Do NOT wash in a washing machine or put in a drier.
The doll's yarn hair may get some felting with love. This is normal wear.
