As those of you that were at the July meeting know, we have decided to meet every month except December in 2011.I have booked the the room and estimate the annual subs for next year will be £30.00 each providing we hold our numbers.We also decided to have an extra meeting this year so I have booked the room for the last Saturday in November the 27th there will be no extra charge for those members that have paid in full,for everyone else it will be £5.00 on the day.

Playtime with paperclay

We are so happy to do our first post of our doll club meeting on Saturday. We played with paper clay. Everyone made lots and lots of faces out of moulds There were commercial moulds, Sherry Goshan moulds and moulds by Mavis who is also a member of our doll club.

The faces started coming thick and fast!

But there was also time for tea and cakes

After a short lunch break everyone was back into sculpting heads with clay. All sorts of weird and wonderful heads were being made.

Some of the members brought their dolls to show.

This lovely group of dolls were made by Lee Edwards Longhurst.(Pumpkinella, Maggie the ice maiden, Joy of Christmas and Raggedy doll Molly)

Miss Britania made by Karen Howarth

Penny Gerb brought her beautiful fabric Journal pages which she made from Patti Culea's book

Such a good time was had that none of us wanted to go home. So with popular request we will be meeting more often after November this year and have lots of fun activities planned.
