I have only been collecting Sashas for about 4 years now. My first Sasha, a Gingham Girl, was purchased in 1976. I put her in my doll cabinet and thought no more about it.

My collection mainly consisted of early composition dolls,and hard plastic dolls from the 50's. I was also very much taken with Heidi Ott, Sylvia Natterer and Kathe Kruse. My collection of these dolls continued and I learned that Sylvia Natterer studied under Ms. Morgenthaler and I started looking at Sashas.....I fell for them also.

I tried to do this website after the San Francisco festival but got discourged and set it aside. I still can't grasp most of it. Please hang in there with me.....I will get better at this....I hope !
