Homespun from the Heart's Story
My name is Cindy Markovcy, aka Chief Doll Maker and designer. I began sewing in the Girl Scouts over 20 years ago, just so I could earn my sewing badge. I remember my first work was a lumpy felt pillow shaped like an elephant which I think my mom still has! My first sewing machine was given to me by my parents many years later and I started experimenting and making home items like pillows and tree skirts.
A few people saw my work and asked to buy it; soon after that, I was making work to sell and doing craft shows as a hobby while working full-time in the Corporate World. During that time, I was online and saw the beautiful primitive dolls going for auction. I fell in love with dolls all over again and knew I needed to make some (after all, I still love to play with them!). In April of 2004 and with lots of encouragement from my husband, I decided to start my own website and Homespun from the Heart was born.
Today, I am a full time mommy and entrepreneur working out of my home doing what I love most. My kitchen counters always have tea stain on them and there is usually a pile of doll bodies to be finished; I am working at least 2 seasons ahead of the rest of my family and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!
My designs have been published in Create & Decorate magazine, featured in various online e-zines and publications; I have a pattern line of 100 and growing and sell online, at juried craft shows and in stores. I'm proud to say I sell internationally to several customers, including a couple of stores that carry Homespun from the Heart dolls.
