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.

Christmas meeting

Happy New Year to all. It's a bit late but we were having problems uploading the images onto the blogs hence the delay. Hope it will be ok now.
The Christmas meeting was well attended. There was plenty of food and a good time was had by all. There were plenty of doll's on display.
Karen's full size geishas, Mavis's Cat and Mouse drew a lot of attention. Ann brought in her stump doll in progress which she hopes to make a pattern and release it this year. Margaret brought in her sweet little fairies and angels.
