“A FAVORITE CULTURAL TRADITION I TAKE PART IN OR FIND INTERESTING IS…..??? I don’t even know for sure what nationality I am (?) I think It’s Norwegian and Irish, but honestly, it doesn’t matter to me. What truly matters is that I am a child of the Almighty God. That said, I thoroughly enjoy sewing and utilizing my God given talents to create beautiful gifts for family and friends; including making doll clothes :)

My favorite Cultural tradition…that is a hard one. Perhaps patterns of traditional clothing from the Native American tribes with the beautiful beading or since my ancestry is Swedish, German, English, Scottish/Irish any of the traditional clothing from those areas.

I would love to see more historical costumes for 14" dolls. I have been collecting the old " My Name is Katie " dolls released by the American School of Needlework back in the 90’s , and their patterns were more geared to knitting and crochet rather than sewing.

A favorite tradition of my family is to get together on Patriots day when the Boston Marathon runs right through my town. We gather and walk down to cheer on the wave after wave of runners. We then walk back and have a fun get together. You can’t get across the route for about 10 miles on each side so we plan ahead. It’s so fun seeing the next generation participate and compare photos of their moms, dads, aunts and uncles doing the same thing.

The cultural tradition we take part in is the advent calendar. Our grandchildren are now using the one I made for our children back in the 80’s. It is showing its age, but they love it. They also love the teddy bear stockings I made that same year. I would love to see some sort of pattern for an advent calendar small enough for the dolls to enjoy.

I would love to see a series of patterns dedicated to traditional dress from countries and cultures around the globe that highlights specific decorative techniques and provides some historical and cultural information about the attire. It would be wonderful to have the patterns include both boy and girl outfits. I would love a line like this.

Along with the traditional holidays like Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. On St.Patrick’s Day we have a corn beef dinner. My granddaughter is Irish from both sides of her family. I would love to make her a traditional Irish dress or an Irish dancers dress.

A tradition in my family is gathering on Christmas Eve. We do poppers, or crackers, which is fun to see paper crowns on the grown ups, and everyone’s favorite, presents from the dolls! My mom sets up a doll tree in her room of dolls / paper dolls, and buys little goofy gifts she finds, usually from thrift shops, for everyone and wraps them. We all get so tickled to open presents from “the dolls”!

My very first job after college was teaching Head Start on the Hopi Indian Reservation in northern Arizona. I am still in touch with many of the friends that I made there, and that culture is very important to me. We have been trying to come up with a pattern to make a traditional Hopi dress, but I am too inexperienced to take pieces of this and that to do it. I would be happy to be a consultant with a pattern designer to do that.

A cultural pattern I would like to see offered at Pixie Faire would be something like a Qipao Cheongsam, a Hmong Miao outfit or a Korean Hanbok. Those are the ones I’m trying to design now, but got stuck when I realized it was looking more like a Star Trek uniform.
I’ve been on a cultural kick this past year as I designed an African inspired dress with headdress, both a summer and winter Russian dress (also with headdresses), a Polynesian inspired dress with lei, and an absolutely gorgeous Ballet Folklórico. So now I have an Asian style dress I want to figure out.

A cultural tradition that I take part in is attending Smorgasbord at our church. It began with guests bringing traditional Scandinavian dishes to share. It has expanded to include offerings from other cultures of congregants using our church, such as, Mexico, Somalia, & Ukraine.It is a night of food, festivity & fun, celebrating diversity and togetherness!

I’ve also attended Native American dance events in our region. I’ve loved watching the dancers and seeing their bright costumes.

I look forward to seeing Pixie Faire patterns that celebrate our rich cultural diversity & history. I’d love to see more patterns from Ireland, Scotland, England, France & Germany.

We never seemed to have cultural traditions in our family growing up, so as the Grandmother in a 3 generation home, I have been helping to bring some traditions from our very mixed heritage into our family. We are Swedish and German on my fathers’ side and Irish, Scotch and English on my mother’s. We make Swedish Almond and Cardamon Cookies, go to Fredricksburg and Humble in Texas for the Christmas festivities and I have the girls make straw ornaments for the tree. Our best friends and backyard neighbors (we are so friendly that we built a “friendship” gate between our houses on the back fence and you never know who might be in whose kitchen making coffee and breakfast for everyone) are Puerto Rican. They have a special Christmas Eve and New Years Eve party at their house and roast a whole pig in a China Box in their back yard. I make dozens of Mallorcas, a soft, semi-sweet roll that is traditional to PR and no one can find here in the states, to share. We make cookies for all the kids who hang out in our house while the adults drink and party in V’s house. The kids love decorating the cookies and set up games and have Christmas movies going. This is much more fun than the family get togethers I remember as a child.

As far as cultural patterns, there are many of the standards available, such as the Viking and Scotish and Spanish costumes. I would like to see more Middle Eastern patterns, and perhaps variations on Spanish and Asian cultures, such as Thai, Portugal, Vietnamese, African and Greek. An interesting class might be how to make tweeks to current patterns to make them more ethnically diverse.

A tradition we have, not just at Christmas, but also at Thanksgiving and Easter, is to go around the table and read silly riddles associated with that holiday. I find them online and print them out, with each person getting to read three or four while everyone else guesses the answers. It’s a good way to get ALL ages involved, and everyone laughing. I would enjoy seeing more Polynesian patterns. I used to live in Hawaii, so know there are many styles of long dresses.

My family are Welsh and yes I have seen a Welsh costume that I did buy on Pixie Faire. I am still hoping for a Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson pattern for AGAT and Carpataina boy dolls.

With all of the original emigrants to the U.S. now deceased in our family, I’m sure new traditions will surface. We still like to watch the Rose Parade from Pasadena on New Years morning. I do like the styles of the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s but there are already a lot of those patterns. Maybe parade theme wear might be fun. Especially if it reflected back into our countries history.

I broke with tradition and started my own! Since Jesus is the reason for the season, I replaced Christmas trees with a tall, 6-tier display of events from Christ’s birth to eternity in New Jerusalem. At the base I have a display of foreign dolls since God knows no prejudice. I would like to see PF add a line of historical cultural attire for dolls.

A cultural tradition that I enjoy participating in is a Christmas lessons and carols service. I suspect that there is a traditional Victorian-style / Dickensian carolers pattern somewhere on Pixie Faire, but some for the ladies and gents is a cute possibility. Also, the traditional English boy choir robes could be fun…maybe there is one already? I just haven’t really thought about this before so haven’t really looked for such a pattern.

My favorite holiday tradition is to hide a pickle on the tree. The first one to find it gets a special gift.

Since this is such a divisive time in our country, it would be really great to see the the clothing worn by children from the many nations that make up this country, including those of the first people here whether they came across a land bridge from Russia or in boats from other parts of the world.

No real culture tradition in my family. My heritage is German, Irish, English, French and a touch of American Indian.
I would love to see more heritage costumes from other countries introduced, so we could celebrate our heritage

A favourite cultural tradition for me is celebrating Canada Day on July 1. We gather in the afternoon at the home of our oldest son & his family with our other son & his family & whatever friends can come. Over shared food & beverages we visit while the kids play games. At dusk we walk to a local park on the shores of Lake Erie to listen to entertainment until it is dark. Then we enjoy a half hour of fireworks set off for barges on the lake. We then return to our son’s for more visiting until time to go home. A wonderful celebration of our great country with family & friends!

It would be fun to sew a traditional kimono complete with the obi and all the details. I also love the traditional women’s folk wear of Guatemala and Peru, both heavy on colorful embellishments and embroidery and contrasting fabrics.

A favorite cultural tradition I take part in at Christmas is to decorate the yard, house and tree. We also make cookies and decorate them as well.

Like Leah below, my daughter danced the Nutcracker every year, and I made some of the costumes the dancers wore. I would love to see some Victorian wear for the Christmas party, as well as some of the other costumes you see in Nutcracker. But in addition to tutus, I would like to see some lyrical style dance costumes Russian dancer costumes, clown costumes and “snowflake” costumes.

The only cultural tradition that comes to mind is celebrating Thanksgiving every year with a big family get-together for turkey and cornbread dressing and all the sides. I would like to see patterns of folk costumes from European countries.

I am American first of course but our family is a mix of Italian and English. We have a tradition of making canolis for holidays. Maybe since so many countries use red green and white for their flags, a costume utilizing those colors.

One of our family traditions is for someone to say a prayer before eating; especially during meals when several families are present. i think various Native American patterns would be great; they are so varied from different parts of America and some of them closely resemble the decor of other countries

A favorite cultural tradition in my area is where the community comes together to make a huge and very professional musical production each winter after Christmas. Hundreds of high school student actors and support crew, seamstresses, woodworkers, artists, sound and lighting technicians all come together to make our productions successful. I would love to see doll-sized garments that represent costumes from famous shows. My personal favorites are the blue evening gowns and red and white Mrs. Claus gowns worn in White Christmas, and any gowns from Oklahoma. They are so feminine and exciting to the children who come to our shows. They want to touch them and think they look like princesses. It always feels so magical to see the wonder on their faces.
