Meet new vendor Yvonne Yvon Martens of “A Gentler Time”.
I make and sell Waldorf inspired dolls made of natural fibre sourced as much as possible here in Manitoba and in Canada.
I started making dolls as I wound down my nursing career but it really became my art after my retirement. My first doll was made for my mother who had dementia. I have always loved dolls and enjoy creating a child or adult’s “friend”.
Each doll is an individual; there are no two alike. I think my favourite is the doll I made for my great-granddaughter. Her reaction at 7 months was really special.
Find Yvonne on the Manitoba Fibre Trail at Long Way Homestead on Saturday September 12, 2020.
