Ora and Lee Jacobson
Having fun with gourds does not require one to be a "Serious" artist. A fun and whimsical gourd project is the dolls at the right.  Just the size and shape to sit on a bookcase shelf or window sill. 

 For many years I was a production weaver and generated yards and yards of Thrums; the leftover yarn ends when a project comes off the loom.  I found a book about creating dolls using Tennessee Spinner Gourds for the heads.  The directions for these dolls included a pattern for their funky bodies.  What fun it was to make a variety of faces, sew the bodies out of scraps of fabric and stuff them with my Thrums. Sure to bring a grin to the faces of friends and family.


Due to the extremely high shipping costs for international orders we only ship to the 50 USA states.
