Pat Hatch (of the Hatch Collection) still collects black cloth dolls, and 19th century American textiles, and things from the Shaker past.

Karlyn Cauley makes contemporary black cloth dolls as a folk artist. She is a Sister of the Divine Savior in Milwaukee, WI, whose mission is to share the fullness of life. Her dolls are inspired by the collection of Pat Hatch, and much of her other work is inspired by the Shakers.
