THE STORY OF MARY YON DOLLS

My crochet journey began at the age of 5.  Poor in finances, but rich in creativity, my mother used her ingenuity to teach me and my sisters how to crochet.

 

She repurposed her old dresses into "yarn alternatives" for us and taught us how to whittle sticks into crochet hooks. We made 'rag rugs' and I got 'hooked' on crochet. That was the beginning of my lifelong passion for innovation and empowerment.

Mommy's 'make it work' mindset also taught me to think outside the box, crocheting everything - home decor, fashion, "chikinis", shoes - even my wedding gown. I crochet everywhere, all the time, even in the dark, while I'm watching movies. 

But these custom dolls I create? 

They're not just dolls; they're story tellers and champions of uniqueness, resilience, and diversity.

Mary Yon Dolls turn simple threads into extraordinary keepsakes that celebrate the uniqueness of handmade art.
