I am Brenda Sanker of Sanker Studio, formerly The Vintage Polka Dot.  I've been creating whimsically primitive folk art style dolls for over 25 years.   I have been published in Stampington's PRIMS magazine (2010) and my graphics were published in Stampington's Somerset Studio (2010).

I am the only seller of my patterns.
I sell exclusively in my Etsy shop. www.etsy.com/shop/brendasanker

Dolls and Patterns (current & retired):  My dolls are not toys and made for display only.
My dolls, photos and patterns are my intellectual property.

Care instructions
