Merry Christmas in July!

Life has a way of throwing you a curve every so often and that is what happened to us. Like twins, which we are not, we both had very serious health issues to conquer this winter and spring. Like survivors, which we are, we will both be 100% before long. We have too many Santas to create, too many friends to see and too many places to go to stop now!
Though we are sad that we cannot be with you, we wish you a very merry time in Rye, NY. Bill and Michael have some fabulous things up their sleeve for you to enjoy.  When you go to dinner at night we hope you will feel in a small way, that we are there with you. Thanks to Bill and Michael for their confidence entrusting us with the surprise project.
August is the target date to be back in the studio. We'll be working and posting pictures, sending emails and building our sales page once again. Thank you to all for your support and your patience.

Studio Closed

After an extraordinarily busy summer and fall, we are taking a couple weeks of respite to "fill up the well." Thanks to everyone who has made this such a successful season for Two Sisters. We'll be back in time to post and ship for Christmas!

Haliburton County Studio Tour 2015

The 2015 Studio Tour started off on a cold and blustery day. After the warm summer temperatures lasted until the end of September we were all caught off guard! Never-the-less we got the grog heated and the ginger cookies out of the oven and our visitors all had a lovely time enjoying the new merchandise and the early Christmas decorations! We will be open next weekend too:

October 10-11 from 10AM to 4PM
17102 Hwy 35, (Halls Lake) Algonquin Highlands, Ontario

Still Glowing

(Santa Tin from the Gordon Harkins collection)  

After a fabulous week in Lancaster, PA, hosted by Steve Wilt and Jim Morrison, we dragged ourselves home tired, but filled with enthusiasm. We learned so much from the museum room, the programs and the special exhibits. We spent an enchanted afternoon at the National Christmas Center in nearby Paradise, PA. We listened with awe as John Wernega coached the best from the Glow Christmas Carolers. We charmed as much money as we could from the ATM and spent gleeful hours room-hopping and shopping in the salesroom and Kris Kindl Markt. Thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this convention the best one yet. Every year The Golden Glow raises the bar and this year was no exception!

Many of you have requested that we move our sales page back to the familiar format of our website, so we have done it. We left a few things ready to be posted and you can find them on the Santas, Elves & Nodders For Sale page. In the next few days we will gradually add more as the pieces are completed.

News From Two Sisters Studio

We owe everyone an apology for not posting here for such a very long time! Santa's elves have been too busy preparing for the Golden Glow Convention to do anything else. Who would have guessed a regular work week for Santa would be 80 hours a week?
Well, at least he has a smile on his face!

Our new Nodder.

With some regret, we made the decision to close our shop on Doll Shops United (DSU). We had many friends there who were supportive and the sales were good, but we just cannot keep up the level of production to continue with an on-line shop. Further, a few of our true blue Christmas collectors didn't like the change. As a result, starting in August, we will go back to having our sales page right here. If you are on our mailing list, you will get an email about every two weeks and you can choose to follow the link or not. If you want to join our mailing list, please send your email address and your name to Lynn at

We have the car packed and we are just about ready to leave the dogs in the care of their trusty sitters while we go to Kansas City for the UFDC National (doll) Convention, followed immediately by the Golden Glow Convention in Lancaster, PA. Thank heavens for house sitters and air conditioned cars.
Hope to see many of you soon. We will be set up in the Kris Kindle Markt and of course, our door will be open for room trading at the Marriott. Hope you will stop in to say hello!
