The newsletter will evolve as we develop more content in the future. You can help! I can use notes, stories and other materials from you about your activities and happenings, your websites, any challenges you might want to organize, photographs of your work or studio, and other items that could be of interest to our doll making community!

From Patti Culea:
Caroline of Road to California Quilt Show (January 23-26, Ontario Convention Center, Ontario, CA) has contacted me about putting together a cloth doll exhibit for this next years show. I'm very excited about this as cloth dolls are becoming more and more popular and Caroline sees this. She's also been very supportive of the cloth doll world. Barbara Willis & Betts Vidal have had a sales booth there for several years. Also, Pamela Armas of Treasures of the Gypsy is there with her booth filled with dolls.
Caroline is giving us a good space. Actually two booths. That means we can have at least 50 dolls and they'll be displayed well so people can see them in all their beauty. We'll also have good signage for each doll, and a booklet to hand out if people are interested.
The exhibit is called Imitation of Life in Cloth. The dolls must be made from cloth. This can be cotton, wool, knits, silks. This is a quilt show and we'd like to show the quilt world what we do with the same fabrics they use.
Many of you know I will be going in for major surgery Oct. 29. The recovery can be long, but with God's help I'll break the records. I will need help setting up the exhibit so will be calling a of you who live relatively close to Ontario, California.
Attached are two forms (at the end of our newsletter) - The invitation and exhibit forms. Details are in these, but if you have questions please contact me at my gmail address. I'll have my iPad with me in the hospital and can answer emails once I'm functional. Which will hopefully be very soon.

From Barb Keeling:
Thank you to those who took part in my needle felting play day where everyone did a darling little bear. This was not an in-depth felting class. It was a free form, no pattern, have a ton of fun, stand out side of the box and JUST DO IT project. The only requirement was the bear needed to have blue ears. This is all part of a Special Challenge I am doing with Soft Dolls and Animals magazine focusing on one of my children’s stories called THE BLUE EARED BEAR, a story about Bullying. Make sure you have sent me a photo of your bear from the play day so I can include it in my story. Send it via an attachment to: email@example.com (here is my phone number 760 806-9109)
