Karen Pugh of Loved To Pieces Doll Hospital restores mostly pre-1960 dolls, including Madame Alexander, vintage Ginny, antique German and Shirley Temple dolls. She works on pieces of any age, with the exception of Barbies and battery-operated or mechanical dolls, and she’ll repair teddy bears, too. The self-taught Pugh was mentored by other doll doctors, but learned mostly by studying training manuals, books and videos. A member of Doll Doctor’s Association and the Doll Artisan Guild, Pugh boasts 30 years of experience, and mends 500 dolls a year.
