Dolls in London
While at the Knitting & Stitching Show in
London I was excited to see Mavis Walker’s
Chess Set. She has worked on this for years.
There were several other doll exhibits at the
show – all cloth – but photography wasn’t
allowed. I was glad to see that Mavis was
open to people taking photo’s of her dolls.
The other photo I have to share is a stitched
piece that was in the entry as we walked into
the show at Alexander Palace. Fun at Fobbles
Many of you know I mainly seem to
teach workshops outside the U.S. The
shop in the photo below is in the Lake
District of England and I go there every
year. The shop and classroom are in a
400 year old converted barn, and on a
working farm. The owners raise sheep
dogs and have sheep to train the dogs.
This year we made my wee doll –
Peony. Several got their dolls finished,
but we do work hard for 3 days.
