Happy 200th Birthday, Izannah!

Izannah Walker would likely be surprised at the hoopla 200 years later on her birthday.  Being born a woman and orphaned as a child were not causes for celebration in the early 1800's.  But they were a part of life.  She grew up on her aunt and uncle's farm. Living on a farm she likely learned many of the skills which led her to become a property owner, an inventor and a businesswoman. That was quite something to say for a woman at that time! We know her because of her doll creations, but I have loved thinking about the kind of woman she likely was while studying and emulating her creations.

I don't typically promote my own creations on this blog, but I am blown away by many of the creations made by artists to honor Izannah on this day.  Many of them started their Izannah journeys with my pattern. So, to honor Izannah on this day, I will be offering the pattern at a sharply reduced rate of $10 from September 25th to September 30th. If you know of someone who has been wanting this pattern, now is the time to get it.
