My name is Maurine Adrezin. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with
my husband, Allen. We have three married children and six
grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
Since I was very young, I have enjoyed the fiberarts: weaving,
macramé, sewing, embroidery, crewel, machine knitting and
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

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.
