Newsletter posted by Stephanie Meyer. To get the un-edited newsletter by email, join our group! We welcome new members.Our next meeting will be at Joann Dossett's on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 at 6 p.m. The program will feature Diane Carlson, a professional milliner. She will teach us to make a hat for our dolls. Bring a doll that needs a new chapeau. The hat design is called a "Fascinator". It sits on top of the dolls' head. Diane will have kits made up with the materials, wire, feathers for decoration, etc. for $5. If you want to match a doll's dress, feel free to bring your own fabrics and trims. There is hand-sewing, but sewing machines will not be needed. This will be fun. Diane has a facebook page if you want to view more hats: facebook.com/madhatterparties
Parking is limited, but you can park down the hill, call Joann's number and Jim will drive down and pick you up.
