My name is Maurine Adrezin.  I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with my husband, Allen.  We have three married children and six grandchildren.
    Since I was very young, I have enjoyed the fiberarts:  weaving, macramé, sewing, embroidery, crewel, machine knitting and quilting.
    I made my first cloth doll and mohair teddy bear while living in Melbourne, Australia.  When I returned to America I continued making cloth dolls and teddy bears.  I took numerous on-line classes and attended workshops to learn different techniques and have won many blue ribbons for my dolls.  I also developed a love of both needle and wet felting.  I now design my own dolls and weave the fabric for their clothes.
    I have been awarded the honor of being selected as a Juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.  I belong to the "Las Vegas Silver Doll-er Doll Club", the "Southern Nevada Weavers and Spinner's Guild, Inc" also called the "Las Vegas Fiber Arts Guild", "Frances Irwin Handweavers" and the "Complex Weavers".  I have been published in "Soft Dolls and Animals", "500 Handmade Dolls". "Art Doll Quarterly", "Doll Crafter and Costuming" and "Handwoven Magazine" as well as several newpapers.
    I'm the Program Coordinator for the "Las Vegas Fiber Arts Guild".

    I have been  designing  my  own  patterns  and  have  been  teaching  cloth  dollmaking.   Most  of  these  classes incorporate simple  weaving techniques.   On the following pages are some of the dolls and bears that I have made, the fabrics that I have woven, and the projects that I've done with my grandchildren.

    I hope you enjoy looking at them.
