Backstage Tour


Oh, theater people can be so wonderfully impossible! Somehow the Wee Folk Players (they’re a stitch) stayed together in one spot long enough to take a group photo. It didn’t take long before the cast and crew rushed back to work on the next episode in their American Drama Series. I know that you like to see private glimpses of the stars backstage, so here are some candid shots of the troupe in action.

Leading strongmen left their egos in check and helped move rugs…


and co-stars lent a hand sifting through and organizing the store room…


and hauled props to their spot on the set.


Costumes were fitted by the wardrobe mistress.


And here, Abe Lincoln gets made up before his appearance as the guest star in an upcoming episode.

Next week, the creative director of the Wee Folk Players will step out from behind the curtain and answer questions about how this series has affected her work and life, and reveal what’s next for the troupe.


The Wee Folk Players (They’re a Stitch) formed after the 2016 election and have produced a string of episodes in the American Drama Series.

  1. A great cast! Lincoln should be interesting.
    I’m embroidering today but not at the scale of your work. I am impressed with the detail you have in the costumes. It is inspiring me. Thank you.

  2. I think you are hysterically funny,and so clever to boot! And I want to thank you, I recently bought your book, and made my first doll. You are brilliant!

  3. Love the “behind the scenes” shots with the crew working so hard to make things happen. Looking forward to future episodes.

  4. I only just discovered this. Shamefully, I haven’t checked in at your blog for quite a spell. Talk about raising my spirits post-election! Love the fishnet stockings. Is that Kellyanne or Ivanka? I really need to research their past performances now and get up to speed!

  5. So great again!!! You’re amazing! Not just creative with your hands but with your mind too! Am staying very impressed! Your daffodils are beautiful! Thanks again! xoxo, maria
