Cloth Figure Quarterly

 Cloth Figure Quarterly UK was a trial publication of 4 issues produced, edited and printed by Madeleine Sara in the UK, in 2008. 
It aimed to celebrate the Art/Craft of Cloth Figures with Textile Embellishment, also known as Cloth Dolls and Textile Figures. 

'An excellent wealth of information for anyone involved or interested in any form of cloth doll or textile figure making; not glossy, but nevertheless, excellent value for money'! 

Madeleine Sara has considerable experience writing for Doll magazine and decided to create this publication, specifically on cloth figures, utilising her knowledge and experience together with that of other cloth doll makers. Whilst the focus was on UK designers/makers and other relevant textile figure subjects, there are contributions and interviews with cloth doll makers from around the globe.  Sadly, it proved too costly to continue as a printed magazine and was far too much work for one person, alone, to continue. However, she reserves the right to reinstate the magazine in some form in the future, if circumstances prove more favourable. 

All 4 issues of Cloth Figure Quarterly which ran in 2008

are now ONLY available on a CD-ROM
