Next meeting: November 22, 2011 at Patty Smith’s house, 6:30- 9 p.m. Patty will teach us hat-making for dolls. Patty writes: “I'm using the book “Hats In Miniature” by Lyn Waring. I'll show how to make and what I use in the different hats. I'll have some hats made so we can finish, bring small flowers and ribbon. You can use them for a doll or make a pin cushion. Or my latest X-mas ornament.”
Last month’s meeting was on hair --- we explored several dozen ways of putting hair on dolls. The meeting before that was on needle-sculpting faces, so we should each have at least one head ready for a new hat. This will be fun.
HOLIDAY PARTY: Barbara Chapman has again invited us all to her home on December 11th, 2 p.m. She always decorates beautifully and is a most gracious hostess. If you’ve never been to Barbara’s home, don’t miss this. Bring finger food. There’s an optional gift exchange, with pin dolls. Make and bring a pin doll and take one home.

Patty Smith was kind enough to escort a group of dolls made by our members to the Kaleidoscope Quilt Guild Show on October 15th. The quilt show had over a hundred quilts on display, but I think the dolls added a special touch. Thank you, Patty!
