Peggy Creighton is a retired educator who loves to sew and embroider, especially with unusual fabrics and her own designs. She crafted her first rag doll at the age of 9 and began sewing doll clothes by hand soon afterwards. Her interest in sewing escalated when she received her first sewing machine at the age of 11. As a teen, she created her own fashions, and the tradition continued as she stitched unique clothing items for her children and grandchildren.
Today, she enjoys drawing and digitizing toys and doll faces on her embroidery machine. Inspired by the work of her two great aunts, founders of Twinzy Toys, she continues the family legacy of toy creation with all sorts of dolls, fairies, pirates, elves, angels, mermaids, and toy animals. Each of her dolls is fashioned from post-consumer recycled plastic felt material and is hypo-allergenic and has a unique face and name. See a variety of her dolls in the fiber arts room at Gartrell Gallery.
