Ready to show my Original Friends Dolls at the Feria Maestros del Arte coming up on November 11, 12, and 13, 2016Read Now
The countdown to this year's feria Maestros del Arte is drawing close. Original Friends Dolls will once again be represented at this year's 15th Anniversary of this popular Mexican folk-art event located at the Yacht club in Chapala, Jalisco.
We have been enthusiastically creating new dolls to prepare for our sixth consecutive appearance at this invitation only art exhibit which showcases the unique Mexican folk-art.
I will be visiting our doll makers at the women's prison Puente Grande, this coming Tuesday to collect more dolls for this event. We are expecting to have around 100 dolls available for purchase during this event. The feria Maestros del Arte is an event that each year provides an opportunity to sell many of the dolls made by the women prisoners. This directly improves prison life for these ladies by providing the means for basic necessities they would otherwise not have which improves their lives while incarcerated.
The month of September was a milestone for Original Friends Dolls, as we have started our ninth year of making these unique one of a kind ClothArt Dolls.
