“My designer Dewey arrived and I am speechless; what you created is really wonderful and I just love him and when you see him you just have to play with him. The detail is great and so beautifully sewn.  His expression is perfect because he took himself very seriously; this adds to the fun that he this formally dressed, serious puppet. The Dewey classes finger puppets are stunning and the embroidery symbols so beautiful.  I don’t think my students will ever have trouble remembering Melvil Dewey now!”  Deborah Alterman  -  Mt. Holly, NJ
