Join us for a delightful and powerful conversation with Yolonda Jordan of “My Pretty Brown Doll”. Yolanda specializes in crocheted brown dolls with natural hairstyles. Listen at https://www.inthedollworld.com/podcasts.html
Yolonda shares her fond memories of learning how to crochet from her Great Aunt when she was 7 years old. She also explains how and why she went from crocheting scarves and hats to crocheting her amazing brown dolls.
Her first published book, “My Pretty Brown Doll: Crochet Patterns for a Doll That Looks Like You” is on the market. It is the first pattern book for making unique, customizable African-American crocheted dolls.
We also talk about her journey as the first African-American woman to author and publish a book of this kind; what it was like, what she has to share, and how she can help others along their path.
