New Decade

During our January meeting there were big changes announced:

The main change is the date, location and time of our meeting for 2020:

Club meeting will be held the first Tuesday of the month at Heritage Acres (time from 9:30 to 4:30)

There will be no regular e-mails to members as all the relevant information will be on the web page.

Meetings will be more informal with members working on their own projects. Short updates from the executive positions will be given at each meeting during the lunch break

New page (on this website) has been created called "Meeting Notes" which will present the relevant notes and information for the next meeting of the club including dates for  challenges and Sawyer's Days.

The Events page will feature special workshop information.  Check it out as there is information regarding our next workshop with Charlie Patricolo in March/April 2020.

Happy Holidays to all Dolllmakers and Friends

The doll club held their Christmas potluck party at Michele's home.  A big thanks to Michele for making us welcome!

At the potluck (the food was delicious) members exchanged their Christmas gift.  This year the club selected a pattern by the very talented Sharon Mitchell from New Zealand. Her patterns are available at Dollmakers Journey.  We choose "A giraffe, a dragon, and a horse" as the pattern for the exchange.  The pattern was reduced to make it suitable as an ornament.  Those members that participated were asked to wrap their doll and they received another member's gift randomly. Thanks to Maureen and Bev for organizing the exchange and choosing the pattern respectively.  And now for the results:

 Everyone was delighted with their new ornament. Well done to all who participated. Now for the single photos to show them one by one:

A very merry Christmas and to all a good night!  Have a jolly New Year and hope to see everyone at the meeting on Wednesday, January 8th 2020!
