"Sewing dolls for Harrods"

A review of Hoxton Hall Theatre by Pamela Furse-Peskett written on Thursday 6th of July 2017


In the 1960's I I taught sewing and craft work to mum's and toddlers at Hoxton Hall .May Scott had engaged me from the HCC for one afternoon a week.One of the Mum's,Julie Pamela,used to come with her son Kevin .Over time ,her sewing improved so well that I employed her to help me in making hundreds of tiny dolls for Harrods Christmas display. They were based on The Old Woman who lived in a Shoe and other nursery rhyme characters.I had won a Sunday Times competition and part of the prize was that Harrods would stock the toys..
