More February Show&Tell

Welcome to Part 2 of our February Show & Tell!

 Barbara also did another "Anneal" doll. This was a fun doll to make and easy to see why we would want to do more than one.

So pretty in pink! She plans to add more Steampunk accessories. The month comes around so quickly, sometimes we don't get our dolls entirely finished by club day. (I still have to put shoes on my Anneal and make a base for my Circus Girl!)

Laurie is ready for the March Challenge, which was to make a doll based on a work of art. These will be on display at Hardesty Library in April, so you'll be seeing this beautiful, graceful lady again.

We were especially impressed with the shoes - Laurie designed the pattern herself!

 Rena's doll - playful and oh so mischievous looking!

We wrapped up the meeting with a wonderful program where Jayne demonstrated  wigging techniques and materials.

So many ways to make hair and so many materials to make it with. Thank you so much, Jayne, for a very informative program!

See you next month!


February Show&Tell

We had a wonderful showing of dolls at this month's meeting!

Appropriately, the door prize (made by Pam, won by Jack) was in keeping with the Valentine spirit of the month!

Nark brought a beauty she made from an Arley Berryhill pattern.

We're excited about our April workshop which Arley will be teaching!

Colorful, simple and fun. She made this next simple confection from just board and a variety of fibers.

Sherry brought her interpretation of "Anneal" the doll Barbara Schoenoff taught at our 2012 spring workshop.

She is so LOVELY!

Sherry plans to embelish her ensemble with Steampunk accessories.

These unique heels make for fun shoes.

More dolls to show. Come back soon!

Arley Berryhill’s class:

Tulakogee Lodge was cancelled, as there was no guarantee that all rooms would be on the first floor. We will try to stay there at a later date. Laurie has reserved the Maple room at Hardesty library for the two days of Arley’s class on Friday and Saturday, April 19 and 20th. Arley’s room in Tulsa will cost the club about $200 more. Supply lists will be sent to everyone who has fully paid for the class. Arley is sending the pattern to Laurie for distribution to all class members. There is pre-work for the class.  The cost of this class is $100.00.

Hardesty Library display will be in April featuring our art challenge dolls. Bring them to the March 2 Saturday meeting at the library. You still have time to work on them before April. Everyone bring your wonderful art doll challenge doll to the library on April 1. Our two mothers and 7 children love our displays at the library. They are interested in making dolls so Laurie invited them to come to our meeting.

Our next Saturday day meeting will be June 1 at Connie’s house. We will pay our dues, and elect officers.  Bring a potluck finger food dish to share. Our potluck will start at 12 noon. We will also have a fabric and embellishment swap so bring lots of goodies from your stash! This should be a lot of fun. Thanks, Connie, for the great idea!

Laurie will post a list of people, who have volunteered to furnish door prizes for the months ahead, on our blogspot. Please check it our so you will know which month you have signed up for.

We will be constructing table favors for our March project. Members will need to bring card stock and scissors.

The door prize was made by Pam and was won by Jack. Pam made a wonderful Valentine doll sitting on a heart.

We had wonderful show and tell, and our guests really enjoyed seeing the dolls.  Go to the our blogspot to see pictures (link below)

The program was presented by Jayne. She showed various methods and materials to make hair and wigs for dolls.

We enjoyed having our young guests at the meeting. Barbara K and Shari brought fabrics and embellishments to give away, and the children were excited to choose their own. We hope they come back again soon.
