Heritage Acres Workshop

The Cloth-a-dollics had a workshop at Heritage Acres (a bi-annual event) and this time we were fortunate to host Charlie Patricolo.  Charlie taught a three day workshop making either her Smile Doll or her Witch.

Charlie was a wonderful teacher helping everyone from beginners to advanced doll makers.  She had lots of tips for making the doll making process go smoothly.

Here are some photos of the dolls in progress:

More dolls to follow as the members finish there dolls and bring them to the next meeting.

Bird Skull dolls

A group of ladies were inspired by Arley’s Bird dolls (www.arleyberryhill.blogspot.com) and made them during a sewing retreat. The results are wonderful:

Fun was had by all!
