Lucy Nigiyok lives in Ulukhaktok, Nunavut. 
Her mother taught her to sew at the age of 5, giving her small projects to sew like blanket stitches on shoe liners.

Lucy began sewing dolls in 2012. She made a prototype and began improving the pattern as she created.

She went to Ottawa in 2017 for a week to teach a workshop on doll making. She taught four people per class and it was her
first teaching workshop on doll making. She also got to play tourist in the big city and enjoyed the whole experience. It helped to feed the passion of creating these beautiful dolls.
