More About Marilyn In Her Own Words: “I am happily married to my wonderful husband Richard and we are blessed with three beautiful daughters. My professional background is in children’s ministries, but I have enjoyed sewing for over 20 years. Throughout the years I have sewn for local dance schools and theatres groups. With three daughter I have sewn my fair share little girls clothes. In spring 2013 my love for sewing doll clothes began and in March 2014, I started designing patterns for 18” dolls such as American Girl® and Maplelea®. In September of 2015 I added Kidz 'n' Cats to the QTπ family. I enjoy designing and creating modern everyday clothing and shoes. I love keeping up with current fashion and recreating it for your 18” friends."
