The August issue of Early American Life with the 2016 Directory of Traditional American Crafts is here! I’ve really been looking forward to seeing the photo of Hannah at Locust Grove, so it was fun to finally get to see it and of course quite a thrill to be juried into the Directory for the 34th time!Hannah was so excited to see the photograph of her namesake in the August issue of Early American Life.

My name is Paula Walton. I’m a working craftsperson. I’ve been self-employed since 1986, when I started selling the items that I make under the name A Sweet Remembrance. Among other things, I am a doll maker, a dressmaker that specializes in reproduction women’s and children’s clothing, maker of spun cotton ornaments and holiday figures, and a freelance designer. Upon occasion I write magazine articles and am a Craftsperson in Residence. I teach and do demonstrations quite frequently, plus I was previously the director and curator of a small museum in Connecticut.

Congratulations on another great article, and 34 times wow!!!
Thank you Mary!
Congratulations on getting into Early American Life.
Will you be offering your Your home class on Spun Cotton ornaments anytime soon. Should have taken the class years ago. You have such a wonderful talent. Will I need a wordpress email? Thanks Dolores Koper
Thank you Dolores! It’s always been a huge honor to be selected for the Directory – every single time 🙂 I’m only offering the spun cotton class as a class by mail at the current time. I’ve actually got orders booked for the next year and a half, so I don’t have time in my schedule for the foreseeable future to offer in person classes. Not quite sure what you are asking about the wordpress email? WordPress is just the site that hosts my blogs… Are you asking about the Ning class site, which is closing and most likely moving to a private facebook page? If you want to purchase my spun cotton class by mail and would like to be able to access a class discussion site after 10/1/16, then you would need to have a facebook account. Hope that answers your question 🙂
I would like some more information on your home course on the Spun cotton dolls. I just can’t seem to find it on your Journal. Peace, Dolores
Doris, if you are looking on this blog you will not find any information on my Spun Cotton Ornament class by mail. This particular blog is dolls only, mainly Izannah Walker dolls. I do have a spun cotton ornament blog which is http://www.spuncottonornaments.com. You may find information about my spun cotton class by mail on my website, where you may also purchase the class http://asweetremembrance.com/item_69/Spun-Cotton-Ornament-Class-by-Mail.htm .
