The "Gildebrief" is a world-renowned magazine that contains a myriad of instructions, patterns, projects and information for everyone making dolls in the antique style.
It was published both in the German and English language. The original German version was first published in 1987 with the English version following in 1993. Publication of both the English and German version was ceased with the "Special Issue 2015".
Almost all issues are still available for sale, either as original paper magazines or on CD with separate paper pattern (where applicable - some of the early issues did not contain additional patterns).
