Our Next Meeting

Our extra meeting this year is on November 27th when for those of you that wish to we will start a prim or vintage doll (if anyone has patterns that they would be willing for us to use please bring them).

Some members wanted a challenge doll for this meeting the title is "Autumn"please don't feel under pressure only do this if you would like to,or if you have a doll that would fit this category please bring it.

As we do not have a meeting in December it was decided that at the November meeting we would have a pre Christmas "do"so bring some nibbles for sharing at lunchtime.

In November we can discuss what we are going to do  next year, some members have come up with a couple of ideas which we can talk about.

Meetings for 2011

Our first meeting is on January 29th .The heads of the Round Robin doll should be made and attached by then ready for handing on for the hair/headdress.As there has been a blip with the RR doll we will have to extend the time frame for completing the doll,as soon as I can sort it out I will let you all know.

Fees will be due at this time, but until I know exact numbers the amount is not yet fixed it should be around £30.00-£35.00 PA plus 50p each attended meeting towards refreshments.

Hoping to see as many of you as possible in November and for those of you that can't make it have a wonderful Christmas.

Last Doll club meeting

Last week we had another wonderful meeting. Penny taught us to make fabric journal pages with fairy inspired art and some free machine embroidary. She brought in her journal that she had made from Patti Culea tome from her book "Creative Cloth Explorations:Adventures With Fairy Inspired Art" Some of us brought our machines and some did our own thing. But even though some didn't do the pages it was just fun watching and learning and just bouncing off ideas each other for future projects.
  Here are some show and tell dolls by some of our members.
