JUNE 2013
Next Meeting: Sunday, June 30th, 2013
June meeting will be a Party and Challenge. The Challenge: The theme is OZ.  Deb Tomcik will host it in her backyard, setting up areas with sub-themes from the series of OZ  books.  Call Deb at 760-943-8692 or email her at,   about how you can participate in all the fun.   The Party:  It's a Birthday Party ! In the past year four of our current members have turned 80: Barbara Chapman, Barb Keeling, Sandy Feingold, and Arline Lowenthal.   We will be honoring our octagenarians at the June meeting.  The date is Sunday,  June 30th at 4 p.m.   Potluck -- Deb suggests green foods in keeping with the Oz theme.  Deb's address: 3530 Sitio Baya,  Carlsbad, 92009. Guests, spouses, friends are welcome, but Deb would appreciate knowing  how many are coming, so please RSVP to her at the phone or email above. However, if you can't RSVP beforehand, don't be shy about just showing up.  Lots of room, lots of food, the more the merrier.
Deb Tomcik's polymer sculpting workshops are taking the summer off.   Next one is on September 22nd at Deb's home in Carlsbad.  Each student is in a different place in making her doll.  Deb has done a wonderful job of teaching us individually.  She is willing to take new students and start at the beginning with them.
                Congratulations to Deb Tomcik, who is featured in a article in the June issue of the magazine, "92009", ---  that's one of the Carlsbad zip codes.
Welcome returning member Diane Shine.  Unfortunately,  I can't fine her new address and contact information.  I'll include it next time.
See you all at the Party and Oz Challenge.

June Meeting, Members' Dolls at the Fair

Don't forget the next meeting on Sunday, June 30th. See former post for more details.

Also thought I would mention that Patty and Gloria both have dolls on display in the Home and Hobby Exhibits at the San Diego Fair.  They all got ribbons!

My pictures are not very good so be sure to go see the dolls in person if you go to the Fair.
