January 2013 Blueprints

January 2013
Next Meeting: Tuesday, January 22nd

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:

Parking is limited, but you can park down the hill, call Joann's number and Jim will drive down and pick you up.
Christmas Party at Barbara Chapman's was great, but no one sent any photos for the Blueprints.
