IMITATION OF LIFE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY NEWSLETTER
Next Meeting: Tuesday, September 27th
We had two great meetings in August. The first week, on the 4th, at Joann Dossett’s
house, was “meet the teacher” Gloria“Mimi” Winer, the evening before her workshop.
It was well attended and Gloria, as usual, was very entertaining and most generous with
her tips and techniques. The second, on August 28th, at Sandy Feingold’s house, was also very
well attended. We discussed all the different ways to design and make doll heads, from simple
to most complicated. Everyone brought dolls to show and it was a good variety.
September’s meeting is back to our regular meeting time and place: Tuesday, Sept. 27th,
at JoannDossett’s at 6:30 p.m. Joann’s address is 2871 Brant St. in San Diego. Phone
is 619-299-4115. At the request of those at the August meeting, Lois will do a hands-on,
---teaching how to needle-sculpt stuffed balls of nylon
pantyhose to make a variety of character faces.
She’ll also demonstrate how to make an open mouth with teeth
October and November meetings will continue with hands-on doll making,
emphasizing hairdos and then hats.

There’s been very little feedback on finding a meeting place for regular month meetings.

with fourth Tuesday evenings, or want some other day/time? Input, please.
