Charlie Patricolo

Making dolls has been a passion of Charlie Patricolo for over 30 years. The love of fabric and the creative process began to develop when she was a teenager in the 60's making dolls as a hobby. In the early 90’s, Charlie left her career in the computer industry and began to devote all of her time to developing dolls from her own designs. She found the experience to be rewarding and appreciated the freedom of being self-employed.

Charlie ended up in North Carolina about 15 years ago and enrolled in a class at John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. At the end of that first week, she felt she had found a home for her heart and her hands in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Charlie became involved in the work/study program and later the host program at the folk school. She continues to teach and demonstrate doll making in North Carolina.
