November 2018

Another good meeting.  Thank you Phyllis for demonstrating how to make cozy chairs and "puffs" for our dolls out of gift boxes!


The challenge for February 2019 is "Chair" so let us see how many members will use Phyllis's technique to make their chair.

Members brought their show and tell dolls and they were wonderful and diverse with quite a few seasonal mushrooms!

Made by Meeri from a Ute Vasina pattern and started six years ago!

Made by Jan from a Jill Maas pattern

A wee mushroom girl made by Teresa

Mushrooms galore made by Michele
 Finally a look at the hand sewn fairies made by four members who traveled to Salt Spring Island in late September to take a workshop with Phoebe from Lavender and Lark: ( the mushrooms are wet and needle felted)
