a cultural tradition I’d like to learn more bout is Dwahli which is a hindu tradition. I met someone from India who is from India and learned a bit more about it. Indian (eastern, not American) costumes would be fun to have.
A FAVORITE CULTURAL TRADITION I TAKE PART IN OR FIND INTERESTING IS… A CULTURAL PATTERN I WOULD LIKE TO SEE OFFERED AT PIXIE FAIRE WOULD BE… “Tradition” sounds like it’s something one does at regular intervals. On the other hand, I’ve got lots various cultural stuff going on constantly but only the Major Holiday traditions are celebrated regularly. Looking for in patterns? Native American, Scottish, Eastern European, Italian, French . . . embroidery, beadwork, weaving designs . . . would be nice. I suppose Baptisms, First Holy Communion, Birthdays and Weddings would fit into the equation. Always looking for various clothes for dolls for those celebrations. Sorry this is the best I can do with this inquiry . . .
Being Dutch in heritage, I would like to see a Dutch girl and boy outfit. Not sure how to make the wooden shoes, though.
A FAVORITE CULTURAL TRADITION I TAKE PART IN OR FIND INTERESTING IS CINCO DE MAYO. I JUST LOVE THE TRADITIONAL COSTUMES
Wow, so many different ethnic, cultural and other traditions represented in the above comments. The diversity is so wonderful. I am open to new patterns of all types. Thanks for offering so many cultural and traditional garbs.
A cultural tradition I take part in is Pascha, an Orthodox holiday that is the same thing as Easter ;-) We have a late night service and eat hard-boiled eggs that have been painted red. A cultural pattern I would like to see offered at Pixie Faire would be more any historical Asian and Middle Eastern clothing. But I’d like any sort of historical and cultural clothing, really.
I don’t think I have a cultural tradition but I always look forward to Christmas and Easter when we celebrate the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Savior of all. I have to say I do not have any suggestions for a cultural pattern I would like to see offered at Pixie Faire. It seems you currently have available many styles of clothing to choose from. Thank you for all you do!
Our Christmas traditions seem to evolve as children become adults and parents get older. One thing we still do with our kids (and grandson) is fill each other’s stockings on Christmas morning. Over the years I‘ve made sequined stockings from kits for each of us, starting with my husband when we were dating. This year I made 5 mini sequined stockings for my great-niece’s AG dolls. I’d like to see Christmas Around the World patterns and craft ideas.
A favourite Cultural tradition is the Calgary stampede! I would love to see pattern for cowgirl outfit.
My favorite cultural tradition is the cajun Rice Festival in Crowley, Louisiana
A FAVORITE CULTURAL TRADITION I TAKE PART IN OR FIND INTERESTING IS the Oban Festival in October at the closest Buddhist Temple. A CULTURAL PATTERN I WOULD LIKE TO SEE OFFERED AT PIXIE FAIRE WOULD BE a ceremonial kimono with all the accouterments, as well as a yakata, and the field jacket and pants worn by peasants in Japan.
My favorite Cultural tradition….how about something Jewish. Two candlesticks (wooden beads) to say a blessing and a special dress to be worn to services on Friday night. Hanukkah, again a dress but using fabric with holiday pattern and a hanukkah menorah with nine candle holders. Just a couple of suggestions.
A favorite cultural tradition I take part in or find interesting is the meat pie of French Canadians. We would have them all the time when my family visited relatives in the French-Canadian part of Fall River, MA. A cultural pattern I would like to see offered at Pixie Faire would be a French-Canadian voyageur pattern, complete with finger-woven sash.
My favorite cultural tradition is decorating my Christmas Tree. I have been collecting ornaments , one every year since 1980. This year my ornament came to me in thanks for my bean dip at my last Christmas Craft Show. I also won several of my Christmas gifts for my family at the raffle there. So this year everyone had presents for Christmas.
A favorite tradition is going to the Nutcracker Ballet. I would like to see some costumes from that—like the mouse, the nutcracker, etc.—More than just the ballerinas.
A cultural tradition I find interesting is the Chinese New Year. My friend and neighbor shared with me the traditions of the Vietnamese. I would love to see the Vietnamese New Year outfits that have the beautiful tunic tops and pants as doll patterns.
We love the Christmas Holidays and I love to decorate our tree with handmade ornaments (mine, friends and from around the world). Our family roots have been blended basically from Europe and the South. Prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, creamed spinach, etc. for Christmas dinner. Seems like we like the latest movie (or TV) fashions – such as in Little Women. Pixie Faire already has a great collection of costume and period patterns. Just type in your wish to find these patterns. What I select must be a do-able to the finish garment.
Something I do each year is tell my children and grandchild about the various ornaments on our tree. Where or who they came from, where we bought them, just any interesting bit to hopefully give more meaning to the ornaments they will some day have on their trees. When I see eye rolls I know they’ve heard that story several times and remember it! A favorite is ornaments from my parents’ first tree after WW2. My plan is working!
A cultural tradition I take part in is Passover. Though we have no Hebrew heritage in our bloodlines we celebrate Passover simply to pay honor to God’s greatness and the traditions with which Christ grew up. As many of my adult children and their children who can come do so. We serve lamb and have unleavened bread (which we make ourselves). I usually make up a batch or horset and our bitter herb is fresh horseradish, the hot kind! We may not do the ceremony perfectly but we do this every year out of our love for God.
A cultural pattern I would like to see is more Native American clothing, consistent with various tribes’ traditions. Not all tribes dressed the same! Do some research and come up with patterns that reflect typical garb for several different tribal backgrounds and label them as such.
Thanks for listening!
I love to celebrate being a child of God. The birth,death and Resurrection of Christ. My Grandmother started a wonderful tradition when I was young, she made ornaments that would decorate our Christmas gifts which were always something she had knit or sewn.
One of the most interesting cultural traditions I have ever taken part in was a Japanese tea ceremony.I find Japanese culture fascinating and would love to see authentic patterns for traditional Japanese clothes for dolls of all sizes. I would also love to see more authentic Native American clothing patterns—Muskogee would be awesome!
A FAVORITE CULTURAL TRADITION I TAKE PART IN OR FIND INTERESTING IS… celebrating Christmas as the birth of baby Jesus and give gifts from the heart instead of the bank account. I have your school nativity pattern. A CULTURAL PATTERN I WOULD LIKE TO SEE OFFERED AT PIXIE FAIRE WOULD BE..a native American boy pattern and pow wow dance costumes.”
I’d love to see some Ukrainian Costumes. There are so many wonderful designs that are cross stitched on their clothing .
My favorite cultural traditions are getting together with family to trim the Christmas tree and collecting cookie cutters for holiday baking.
I’m impressed by our pioneer and immigrant ancestors’ culture of thrift. Recycling and repurposing are still important today. Sewing doll clothes produces so much beautiful scrap material. I simply can’t throw it out. So, I would like to see a line of patterns aimed at using these wonderful snippets. My thrifty dolls want to use their remnants
…Classical Indian Dance
A favorite cultural tradition for me is Advent. I love the anticipation and the excitement and joy when we finally get to celebrate midnight mass… but then I also adore Lent and never fail to cry when we sing Allelulia Easter Sunday.
Something I would like to see would be a collection of ethnic/traditional holiday outfits from around the world, with embroidery files that would allow a bit of authentic flair for each outfit. Many cultures have astonishing needlework…
On Thanksgiving everyone gathered around the table tells something they are thankful for. One year our granddaughter said she was thanful for"Pops and his funny jokes"

The favorite cultural traditions that I participate in are all things Catholic.We love to travel to Hawaii and love it’s people music , dancing and food. We are blessed with a very diverse community and enjoy sharing many different cultures.

My favourite cultural tradition is Hogmanay… or the Scottish bringing in of the New Year. We may be Canadians, but we celebrate our heritage and all the riches that come with it. You already have the ethnic patterns I want in your shop. I just have to convince my granddaughters they want highland costumes for their dolls 🤗
We celebrate Christmas with our family by each member (family) taking turns each year creatively telling the story of the birth of Jesus.
Perhaps more patterns for Wellie with puffed sleeves.
My cultural tradition is Christmas caroling. I would like to see more English Dickens style clothing for all sizes of dolls including Barbie, Gene, and Wellies.
A CULTURAL PATTERN I WOULD LIKE TO SEE OFFERED AT PIXIE FAIRE WOULD BE… Biblical Nativity Costumes
Favorite Christmas culture midnight mass.
A favorite cultural tradition I take part in or find interesting is every year I make date nut bread and cookies to send to my children and grandchildren. Although this isn’t anything I sew, it is a tradition I started years ago and my children patiently (more like impatiently) await their package every December. However, a cultural pattern I would like to see offered at Pixie Faire would be patterns of a variety of aprons for our dolls who love to bake designed to depict various countries or possibly doll quilts with a design signifying particular cultures. I don’t have that much of a creative ability to design them but I have an exceptional ability to follow directions and sew them. For all the folks at Pixie Faire and all their followers I would like to wish each and everyone of you a very Happy New Year!
I would like to see more Irish patterns, especially dance ones.
I am of northern and western European descent and I’d like to see more country-specific traditional dress patterns. I’d also like to see more Middle Eastern and Asian patterns, especially Indian, Pakistani and Thai patterns.
A cultural tradition in take part in is making lefse and Kringla and Pilsa at Christmas time.
I would like to see some Scandinavian traditional clothing patterns
Cultural items around outdoor life and sports.
My Grandparents were Czecheslovakian, Hungarian & Italian. Here in Daytona Beach, FL. there is a large Greek population. All of these have very beautiful celebration clothing. Maybe you should do an around the world collection. It could be a great education tool.
A favorite cultural tradition in our household is the annual day-long Philadelphia New Year’s Association Mummer’s Parade. Intricately themed costumesin bright colors, music (live for the string bands), incredible choreography, feathers, sequins, dancing and parasols — all tremendous fun! For family members involved with one of the clubs, this is often a year-long event. For participants, it starts early in the morning, and continues until late in the evening, with the Fancy Brigades, followed by parties on 2 Street and around Philadelphia. We especially enjoy the String Band division, talented musicians play and perform skits as the last of the parade members to strut up Broad Street on New Year’s day.
A favorite cultural tradition that we do is every Christmas we have Mexican food for our daily meal. My father was in the Air Force for 21 years and we were stationed in New Mexico for a period of time and became very good friends with a family from there. To honor our friendship we remembered that friendship with food that we shared at that time. Wonderful memories.
The cultural clothing I would like to see is from the native Andies.
The ladies in our family are members of the DAR (Daughters of American Revolution). This past year we have really enjoyed the cultural reenactment events at which we wore period correct dress…stays, bum rolls, mop caps and of course the gowns. All made by my sister and with one exception, done by hand.
Our youngest received a Wellie Wisher doll for Christmas and we have been busy making clothes and shoes. It would be great fun to have some colonial dress patterns to make, so that we can share this tradition with her.
I would be interested in the robes worn during Christ’s life, Also we live in Idaho and have a lot of people from Mexico and I would love some patterns from their traditional dress., and last but not least I have always love the Japanese clothing but I know nothings about it but would be very interested to learn.
Favorite Christmas tradition was a Hungarian pull apart coffee cake in the center of our dinner table that took hours to make because it had to rise twice before making the sections and baking and a big box of chocolates that my Dad bought the family every year. We looked forward to both treats every Christmas.

I donate Native American dolls and dresses. I’d like to see more patterns for that culture.
A favorite cultural tradition I do with my children is bake Belgium Lukken cookies at Christmas. They are made one by one on a special Lukken “book style” iron over the stove. I am lucky enough to have my grandmothers original Lukken iron that she brought with her from Belgium when she imigrated to the US after World War 1. One batch makes about 12 to 13 dozen cookies. We also do Advent Calendars before Christmas and always set up a Nativity scene. A pattern I would like to see is a Toy Soldier from the Nutcracker Suite. Any of the costumes from the Nutcracker would be welcome. Then the dolls can have a Christmas ballet to attend.
Our school has International Day. I would like to see more dance costumes from around the world especially some of the smaller countries and then teach the children a dance to go with the costume and country. Traditions I like to honor are in the area of specialized foods.

Traditional Dress patterns from all over the world ! Maybe some Celtic and Viking knitting and crocheting…..accessories…….???
Thank you for the gift card giveaway.
I love the European dance costumes from previous centuries, Folk Costumes. They were once celebrated by Mattel’s Barbie in a series of dolls. I would love to make dresses like that.
A culture celebration I look forward to every year is Samhain.
When stationed overseas we attended several Feis (Irish Festivals). My favorite event was the Irish Dancing. After moving back to the states I have continued to enjoy watching Irish dancing and competitions. I would love to see a pattern for the dresses!
I come from Canada and it’s has many different culyures, I would like to see more Indigenous costumes to celebrate our heritage. we also do Christmas Eve service at our Church among year long holidays

A favorite cultural tradition I take part in would be cooking Italian dishes for my husband who is 1st generation. Both his parents came from a small town in Italy. A cultural pattern I would like to see offered at Pixie Faire would be any traditional costumes.When I was little I had a cousin who had an amazing collection of small dolls dressed in traditional costumes from all over the world that an uncle would send her. In addition, my town is known as the “International City” as we have so many ethnic groups here. Every June there is a festival and a new queen is crowned….the girls compete in heritage costumes from the nationalities they represent.

A favorite cultural tradition m’y granddaughters and grandson participate in is Ukrainian dancing I would love to replicate their costumes as well traditional ballet that my other granddaughter participated ins
I don’t have a specific culture I celebrate except I am a child of God and serve Him. He is my everything and has been my peace and healer through the death of my son. When my boys were growing up at Christmas I wanted them to know Christ’s birth was the most important and we only had a 4 foot tree but had a manger with a baby Jesus that sat by the tree. It was a life size one to show them the birth of Jesus was the most important. :)
I “A favorite cultural tradition I take part in or find interesting is celebrating The Three Kings Day. On this day, children receive presents from the three Kings, in the same way Baby Jesus received presents from them. A cultural pattern I would like to see about this tradition is already offered at Pixie Faire, it is “The School Nativity 18” Doll clothes". This pattern includes customs for Mary and Joseph, the Shepherd, the Three Kings and the Angel. This pattern is so beautiful.
Don’t have any….but you can start a new one! All the dresses worn by Presidents wives to the Ball after elections…spand the centuries!!!!! I love gowns and what a teaching process!
One of my favorite Cultural traditions is cooking from scratch the entire Thanksgiving meal and along with that, family gathering. Not sure of a cultural pattern though.
My favorite tradition is making oliebollen and apelflappen for New Years eve when those that can make it to our house come for an evening of board games, food and ringing in a new year.
I try to keep some of my Dutch traditions alive.
A favourite cultural tradition we have is giving out Hong Bao, or red envelopes with money. These are mainly given to children. Like many have commented, I would love to see more international clothing from all parts of the world, especially with authentic details that are scaled down well for children. Many have asked for a kimono. Having lived in Japan and knowing a little bit about the etiquette of wearing kimono…one way of folding it is only done when you are attending a funeral. Many Westerners are unfamiliar so cross kimono randomly. Don’t worry though….it’s only a detail, your dolly will survive, LOL!
I think any cultural patterns would be a great add as the US is a cultural melting pot!
A cultural tradition I take part in is Lucia Day. I love the natural materials used in Scandinavian holiday decorations, and the crown of candles Lucia girls wear to celebrate the dark winters in the Northern climes. The white robe with red sash, and wreath headpiece, would make a great pattern!
My family always have fondue on Christmas Eve and then attends Christmas Eve services. On Christmas morning, we open stockings first, have breakfast, then take turns handing out gifts. A different person opens their gifts first each round. I would love to see cultural outfits from Sweden, Norway, Ukraine, Vietnam and so on.
A CULTURAL PATTERN I WOULD LIKE TO SEE OFFERED AT PIXIE FAIRE WOULD BE FOLK COSTUMES FROM AROUND THE WORLD Norway, Korea, Vietnam, etc etc AND FOR NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES (MOHAWK, CREEK, HURON, IROQUOIS, Onondaga, ETC. sorry about caps loc!
A CULTURAL PATTERN I WOULD LIKE TO SEE OFFERED AT PIXIE FAIRE WOULD BE to see some Celtic pattern.
A favorite cultural tradition i find interesting is Chanukah, probably because it is different from the holiday traditions my family celebrates. A cultural pattern I would like dot see offered at Pixie Faire would be the choir robes worn at midnight mass – is that considered cultural? .
Growing up I enjoyed the Norwegian tradition of leftza at Christmas. I would like to implement that again with my family. I just found the recipe again. As for cultural tradition for future, I don’t just know. I tend to enjoy many fashions
I would love to see a grouping of European patterns representing each country. We have an immigration unit in our 2nd grade and I would love to dress dolls in countries represented by the students in the class.
We don’t have any particular cultural tradition since wet have many cultures in our background but am blessed to be a child of God so we celebrate Christ birth, death and resurrection. But a traditional dress I’d love to see is the North American Cree traditional dresses. We live among the Cree nations and I sew lots of traditional doll clothes for various cultures and would love to sew something that’s local
I celebrate pioneer day July 24,. When the pioneers entered the salt lake valley. I would like to see more pioneer outfits for both 18"boys and girls.
