We also had a talk from Brenda Walton who worked in the offices of the Trendon factory and these are her dolls whose eyes were painted by Sasha.

In her talk she spoke about a lady who contacted the factory to say that she had dressed many Sasha’s over the years in costume.Brenda showed us some slides of these dolls, dressed as pearly kings,housemaids etc , she also had some pictures of them.

We were also shown a short film made that was shown on TV of a young girl going to the Trendon factory and watching her doll being made and dressed. I cannot remember if Brenda showed this film or Anna Doggart but it was very interesting to see a Sasha being made.

And again I thank Brenda for taking the time to tell us of her time at the factory.
