“I made Sandro (Alexander Girard) a sample doll with yellow Mexican cotton, then didn’t hear from him for several months. Then he asked if I can do them in quantity, and I said yes. And I get a letter and it’s an order for 100 dolls. When he said ‘quantity,’ I thought he meant 10 or 15, not 100 dolls in three months. It just sent me into a bit of a panic. I would wake up early start to sew like crazy before the kids got up. Then I would get them all fed, pack them off to school and sew all day. After I made dinner and put them to bed, I would sew more. This went on for three months.” -Marilyn Neuhart
