Perhaps no living artist carries the torch of the Americana rag dolls with the resolve and artistry of Jessie Ross. A fourth generation seamstress, Jessie Ross started young and started simple; pillows, pin cushions and dresses for her dolls. By high school she was sewing her own clothes. Now she makes her own dolls, she designs them, sews them, and dresses them. There is literally no part of her dolls that isn't personally done by Jessie. That's the Americana way.
