A-DOR-A-BLE is the only word to describe this Magpie Quartet! Love it, love it, Shirley!
Laurie has been busy this summer. Not only did she make this cutie...(be sure & check out the stylish footwear)...but she has a work in progress (a Barbara Schoenoff pattern)and she made the door prize!
Doreen recently attended the first ADAA (All Dolls Are Art) conference in Austin. She enjoyed it & brought a few friends back with her.
Mr. Mixed Media was made in one of the classes she took.Not sure what this lady's name is but she sure is cute!This was another mixed media doll from ADAA.(Sorry, I was indulging myself in trying different camera angles)You can read more about ADAA & get info for next year's conference at their website.

Guess who showed up at our August meeting?Morris!!We haven't seen Morris in awhile. He's just as gorgeous as ever! Jayne made this one for a friend. (Lucky friend!)Wonder if this is a friend of his? Rena brought this lovely Garden Diva.Her accessory is rather unusual... ...but then again Morris is carrying a ribbon hoop.
Attended: Jack, Connie, Doreen, Jayne, Rena, Pam, Laurie, Shirley, Barbara D.
We had one visitor, Lisa Stanton
Call to Order: Laurie

State Fair: entry forms must be postmarked by Aug. 26th if mailed. There is a form on the Tulsa State Fair site (www.tulsastatefair.com). The State Fair starts Sept 29th to Oct. 9th. We need our dollmakers to enter. The cost is $4.00 per doll to enter...Go to Tulsa State Fair Handbook for details. Go to competitive exhibits, Adult, Hand Arts to finf the doll information. Please consider entering since we need to represent our dolls to the public and entries the past two years have dwindled.
Art on Main: Jayne is still waiting to see if we have been accepted for a booth here. Oct 8th Let Jayne or Laurie know if you want to sell some of your creations.
Leta Benedict is teaching a doll on Oct. 14th, & 15th. We voted to only have her teach the two days.
We still don't know what doll she will teach or what the cost will be. There is a lot of interest from outside the doll club of people interested in taking the class so Leta is a very popular doll artist designer.
Her patterns are very detailed. Laurie will send out an e-mail and have each of us RSVP whether we are taking the class.
Teachers for next year were discussed. Sherry Goshon, Leslie Molen and Nancy Gawron. Sherry Goshon's cost would be less because a doll club in Ark. would like to have her come and teach as well and the travel cost would be shared by both clubs. There was a lot of interest in Sherry coming first. These would be teachers for 2012.
Doreen gave a glowing report on ADAA (All dolls are Art) the conference in Austin. Next year it is July 26-29th. She took a class with Lisa Renner and Cindi Mahlstadt.
Connie suggested having a class taught by Jayne and Laurie making a paper mache stump doll. She has a place in mind where it can be done since it's a messy project and a sink is needed. 6-7 people were interested in doing this one evening. all you need is a doll body to work on.
The door prize was made by Laurie and was a beautiful red white and blue candlestick doll. Barbara D. won!
We worked on the pin dolls after the meeting which we will be selling at Art On Main if we get a booth. It was fun.
Don't forget we need charity dolls still. Pattern on www.noni.com for a bear
