Kay Cloud made her first sawdust doll in 1982. Afterward, she wondered 'could I make the same thing using supplies folk artists used 100 years ago?' Kay was born on a farm in Illinois. She worked with animals during the day and used her free time to learn folk art.

After opening a shop with her husband Ray in 1986, Kay met senior editor for Better Home & Gardens Laura Holtorf-Collins. They collaborated for the next 10 years creating features and cover spots for nearly 30 publications.

Kay and Ray still create folk-art designs and are excited to work with Blackberry Primitives. They hope you enjoy making these patterns as much as they did creating them.
