I've been doing a bit of work with Barbie sized dolls and I found this Scale Conversion Calculator so that I could calculate 1:6 scale. I Found out that a standard doorway is 6'8", or 80". Using the Scale Conversion Calculator I found out that a standard door in 1:6 scale is 13.33" tall. Unfortunately, the scrapbook paper I have been using for the room walls is 12"x 12".

My friend, Donna, and I just got back from a Burnley & Trowbridge 18th Century sewing workshop: “Turn Thy Hand to Sewing” An Introduction to 18th Century Sewing & Construction Techniques A Hands On Workshop Friday Afternoon Feb. 16th , Saturday Feb. 17th & Sunday Feb 18th , 2018 It was amazing. We learned all of the hand stitches for a late 18th Century petticoat and shift, including stroke pleating. Donna and I stayed up past 1 am doing our homework on Saturday night. If you take a B&T workshop and forget anything, Jim runs a mini shop at the workshop. Also, there is a Joann Fabrics 10 minutes away.

Here is a wonderful article on Great Wheels also know as Walking Wheels published in Knitty online magazine Issue 40 First Fall 2012 The Spinner's Glossary by Lee Juvan In my experience, I consider this to be the type of spinning wheel that Sleeping Beauty pricked her finger on.
