Doll Repair in Oklahoma City OK

Doll repair in Oklahoma City OK is one of my

favorite occupations, but not the only one.

Of course I do doll repair in Oklahoma City OK , but it is not the only thing I do here. I moved here to do doll repair in Oklahoma City OK because this is where four of my grandchildren are.
doll repair in Oklahoma City OKThere are so many children’s activities in this area: zoo; science museum; Orr Family Farm; Museum of Natural History; Tiger Safarri; and many more places. We have been to a few of them. Then I bought a house big enough for all of us, so I see them every day. Their family is mostly upstairs, while my bedroom and shop is downstairs, so they can sit and watch me work on dolls most days. They love to help out and they are beginning to learn sewing and embroidery. My hope is that I can turn at least one of them into a doll restoration artist some day. 🙂 They can already look at some antique dolls and tell their names and manufacturers. I plan to take the oldest granddaughter to doll shows with me, the same as I did with my four children when they were growing up.

 I have lived in Oklahoma City for the past two years and have joined the most wonderful doll club. We meet for a luncheon and program once a month and it is something I really look forward to. We also take excursions to different areas and take in luncheons with other doll clubs. We are the Doll Collectors of Oklahoma, which is part of the United Federation of Doll Clubs.

I was teaching art in the public schools PK-6th grade. It is a job that kept my creative juices flowing and kept me involved in artistic expression. Now that I am working full time in doll restoration, I am no longer teaching in the public schools. Doll Repair in Oklahoma City OK is what I want do full time and it fulfills a lifelong dream of having a full time doll shop.

      Stringing a 5 piece body runs about $20. If you click the free doll repair quote, you can fill out the form and send me pictures for a more accurate quote.

    I have two dolls my mother in law had in the 40’s. If I have your text # I can send pictures. I know you won’t be able to give me an firm estimate but I like to know about how much in the ball park. I have a friend in OK City and I could have her bring them to your place.

      I am not taking dolls at this time because I have a two year wait list for repairs right now. Thank you for your interest though.

    Could I please get on the list? My Shirley Temple is so precious to me and I have been looking a long time to find someone with your apparent expertise to repair her. She was my mom’s and I would love to put her back together. Thank you for your consideration. Debbie

    Ruby is not only one of the most gifted individuals I have ever met, but she is also the most patient! Her five-day course was absolutely amazing. Intense, but amazing! I would highly recommend training with this gem if you are at all interested in learning doll repair. My only regret is that I did not have time for the ten-day course.

    Hello, Rubie, I have been looking for someone who can repair my doll which I got for Christmas somewhere around 1950 to 1954. I see from the above comments that you are very busy but I was wondering if I bring my doll in could you at least tell me the company who made her. I can’t find a mark anywhere on her. She was advertised as wearing a child’s size one. She walks when you hold her hand, has eyes which open and close and an open mouth with teeth and tongue. If you can look at her for me, I need your address. And I would be very grateful.

    Hi Ruby I may have overlooked it but I have not found you location. Seeing that you are only taking local dolls right now I was wondering I i am local. I have a babydoll from the mid to late 1960’s that has been in great condition until a couple of weeks ago. She fell off my dresser and broke a finger off. She is a hard plastic doll and I have no idea if it is possible to make this repair. Having had her she once I was a little girl and still in great condition, this broke my heart. She can wear baby clothes size three months, if that can give you any idea of her size. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.
