BLOG 14- Katherine Gillan of From the Pear Tree

Katherine has an interesting niche that her business caters to, a papoose or Moses basket for dolls as well as clothing for dolls and most recently added branded vendor (human kind) solutions in the form of aprons as seen on Katherine in the above picture. When asked what she does she says she creates quality custom handcrafted items that stimulate imaginative play and support learning and communication between you and your kids. In this digital era, I can see the value of what she is doing, an alternative to screen time in needed. Katherine launched back in February 2011 almost 8 years ago, she had recently become a single, first time mom and created a part-time income through her business. Her connection within a doll community encouraged her to take on making doll clothing specifically for the Bamboletta doll because of the need and her talent, she caught the attention of Fig & Me doll producer and when they released the proprietary pattern, they gave Katherine permission to make the ever-popular papoose, as seen in the picture.
  She recently attended many markets to get her face and brand out there, quite effectively I might add. Most of her business stems from her website and social media. If you have a doll lover (18” style like American Girl) that would appreciate some accessories and clothing, please see her listing in Airdrie Exchange to explore what From the Pear Tree can do for you.

  1. I love From the Pear Tree! She recently made a beautiful papoose for my little girl to carry around her baby doll as well as a Wonder Woman cape for my 5 year old, superhero daughter!

    Additionally she has made me a beautiful pencil case, tailored to my branding, with my business logo that is high quality and on point for my business needs!

    I can’t sing her praises enough. Katherine’s eye for detail and talent are truly endless!
