Cathy Hendrickson has been practicing and perfecting her creative skills with dolls and yo-yo quilting for over twenty years. For several
years, Cathy and her husband, Paul - also an artist, owned and operated a retail shop in Metamora, Indiana. While they no longer have
their own shop, Cathy's work can be found at area arts and crafts festivals including the Delta Theta Christmas Gift and Hobby Show,
Indiana Downs Arts Fest and at the Shelby County Historical Society Museum Gift Shop all in Shelbyville, Indiana; also, the Winter Arts
and Crafts Fair and year round at the Brown County Craft Gallery both in Nashville, Indiana. Cathy's work can also be seen at the Fiber
Arts Show in Bloomington, Indiana and at the Hanover College Christmas Fair in Hanover, Indiana.
"My folk dolls grace homes as well as provide joy to both children and adults. My dolls are created in a variety of themes and sizes from
Americana motifs to calicos and faceless Amish dolls. My Raggy Annie and Andie type dolls are sought for collections and decorative
purposes. In addition to my dolls, I create yo-yo mug mats, small quilts in several colors and Americana designs. The art of yo-yo
quilting dates back many years as a way for women to use up scraps and worn-out clothing to make pillow tops, quilts, and even made
into trivets using bottle caps inside each yo-yo. I never throw away any scrap if it is big enough for a yo-yo and before you know it you
can become addicted to making yo-yos. I am sometimes given scraps from friends and family to use in my quilting projects. I am
working on new items all the time.
A self taught artist, I use the skills gained making clothes for myself and my family to create. Once a medical underwriter for a large
insurance company, I now devote much of my time to being an artist and creating new dolls and yo-yo items."
