Hello quinnie-ga,

It appears that the puppet maker you are looking for is Mia Kanazawa.

She is listed as an exhibitor at the Mount Desert Island show for
August 2003, under the category "Fiber: Felting".

"Exhibitors at Mount Desert Island 2003"
Maine Crafts Guild

Her page on the Guild's site briefly describes her work and provides her address.

"Mia Kanazawa"
Maine Crafts Guild

Though that page states that visitors should call first, it does not
provide her phone number.  However, another page on the site does give
the number.  The link to the original page appears to be broken. 
However, the information from that page is currently available in a
Google cached version.

If you are unable to contact her for some reason, the Guild would
presumably be able to assist you.

The information in my answer does include a link to the vendor's phone number.  

My answer indicates that the document entitled "Mia Kanazawa" does not
contain the phone number.  However, the answer also notes that another
document does contain the number:

Google cache of "2003-2004 Directions: Maine Crafts Guild Professional
Membership List"
Maine Crafts Guild

In that document, Mia Kanazawa is the fourth person listed in the left
hand column of page 2.  To the right of her name and address is her
phone number.

I'm not clear on why the vendor's number couldn't be provided.
