For Vintage and Antique Dolls
Professional Doll Repair
Here at Forget Me Not Dolls, I do professional antique doll repair and full doll restoration to bring your precious dolls back to their former beauty. Do you have a beloved old doll or teddy that is dirty, or broken? Perhaps it is in a shoe box in the garage or attic and looks like a basket case. I am never shocked at the state they are in. If you have deep feelings for your childhood doll, it is so rewarding to see it restored. Perhaps you are lucky enough to have a doll or teddy that was treasured by your mother or grandmother. Bring it in to Forget Me Not Dolls and when you see it next, your heart will sing!
I have had a lifelong passion for antique and vintage dolls. I have skills and training in museum quality doll restorations. As a professional seamstress with 50+ years of sewing experience, I have sewn for children, dolls, the theater, and other productions. I love to make period doll costumes and recreate the old doll clothes. Fill out the free doll repair quote with pictures and a description of your doll and I will give you a free estimate to restore your precious doll.
I am a doll restoration artist, and as an artist, I need time to think and consider options for each doll. Doll repair and restoration is a creative process. I don’t just churn out fixed dolls. It takes time and lots of thoughtful contemplation to properly restore a doll. Each doll is unique and presents its own problems. Your doll may take a longer stay at my shop, but you will be happy with the results when you finally get her back.
