We are a group of cloth doll makers who meet once a month in Farnborough, Hampshire. There is a range of abilities, but we are all enthusiastic and keen to learn new skills, as well as practice old ones. It's a very friendly and low key environment in which to learn and craft, and while we do that we drink tea, eat donuts and discuss a wide range of topics.

Belated post


First of all we would like to welcome our new members , Jackie Freyne and Cathy Park.
We are delighted to have them in our group and look forward to seeing their creative works.
We also sadly bid farewell to Jane. However we hope that our paths will cross again once she is settled in her new home .
Due to various reasons we have not been able to update our blog, however here are some pictures of creations by our members.
