Who is Effie Iliopoulos
Doll Artisan Guild Instructor, Master Educator,
Triple Crown of Dollmaking.
I started dollmaking in 1989. I could not believe someone could make such wonderful dolls. They were nothing like I had seen in any shop.
I made a few for all my children and nieces at the time. Then my husband, my children and I moved to New York. Finally found somewhere in New York where I could make dolls. Started teaching at the YMCA then open up a studio in my home in Scarsdale.
We then moved to Japan and became very busy teaching dolls.
Our next move was Hong Kong where once again I started more classes.
Re-opened a new studio again when returning home to Australia
I have run the Doll Artisan Guild Conventions in Melbourne and many seminars for Doll making.
It is hard to part with my dolls but over the years I have made so many dolls that I now need to sell some.
I am sure everyone will get as much joy from them as I have.
