Heather and Sally were all enthusiastic learners.
This was Anne’s sample dolls
Below are the dolls started by the ladies who were learning.
This is Cathy’s “doodle” stitching for an exhibition piece.
Cathy Turner, who had found us through visiting the quilt show in Farnham in January started a Jan Horrox kit “Tallulah doll.
Dee Hutchison who also found us through visiting the quilt show in Farnham brought in an antique Japanese doll which she wants to restore. It was interesting to see how the doll had been dressed. The doll was stuffed with straw and her cloths were stuck together with wheat paste as Dee informed us.
Her expertise in Japanese embroidery is going to be very useful in restoring this beautiful doll.
This is Mavis’s work in progress. A very interesting way of embellishing her doll.
This is Shashi’s Frozen doll which came out of the wood works to be beaded some more
