Judy Skeel began as a self taught artist requested to teach her cloth doll figures at doll clubs, quilt shops and doll and quilt conferences in the USA and Canada. She selling her own doll patterns in 1999 , and began teaching workshops on line a few years later. Judy has been fortunate to be published in Patti Culea's book Creative Cloth Doll Faces as well as with her own designs and work published in several dollmaking periodicals such as Contemporary Dollmaker, Doll Reader, Doll Crafter and Costumer and Soft Dolls and Animals.
Judy was the editor/ owner of The Association For People Who Play With Dolls newsletter for four years until health issues prevented her from continuing. She maintained online workshops and is excited to finally be publishing new doll patterns again, as well as traveling to teach!

The Dragonfly Rider checks on the forest every morning and carries messages back and forth in his satchel. The 9 inch rider wears leather boots and gloves and a silk tunic. His face is sculpted in 100% cotton fabric, and his hair and rooted eyelashes are made of Tibetan Lamb.
The Dragonfly has elegant, translucent wings with an iridescent glow to them. His torso has a poseable armature that is wrapped in ribbon and can be covered or lightly embellished with bead work.
Together this pair can be placed above a pedestal to appear flying or suspended from a ceiling fro a more natural look. Place them near your plants and they will both keep smiling forever!
