Jayne did double duty at the March meeting. She provided the door prize (a goody bag of great sewing items) won by Sherry. And she presented a program on bead embellishing.
It was not just a demonstration; it was a hands-on program. Jayne brought a big selection of beads, needles and thread for everyone to use and taught us how to do simple picot beading.
This is Jayne's mermaid from a Patty Culea pattern. Her beading is almost as heavy as a Bob Mackie gown! (Mackie made all of Cher's fabulous gowns back in the day.)
Here's an example of picot edging that Pam did during the program.
And now on to the Inspired by Song pictures!
The show-stoppers below are from Jayne's personal collection; dolls she bought at various conventions.
The dancer below is also from Jayne's collection. She was made by artist/teacher, Diane Little. We've been privileged to have Diane at our workshops and she is a wonderful teacher and so much fun!
Next are the challenge dolls made by our own club members.
