Hello Dollies with Pam Kenta

The March meetings were such great fun, informative and entertaining. Dollmaker, Pam Kenta, visited Hello Dollies. Pam had everyone in raptures as she talked about "the early days" of dollmaking in Australia, showed her dolls and shared the poems which she composed for her dolls. The photo shows Pam ( far left, flying) at the 1995 Doll Symposium at Anne's Glory Box where elinor peace bailey and Julie McCullough were the tutors. There are some current Hello Dollies members there too! I am so sorry I missed it all, but from all accounts, it was a really great meeting. Thanks, Pam.

Now to the April meeting .... you will get your newsletter very soon. Look out for this page - you will be asked to do some preparation for this month's meeting. Don't panic - you can do it - it's fun!
If you haven't already booked for the "Apronology" class with Fay on 9th June., it would be wise to do so quickly. Just $15 and a muffin recipe for a fun day of making fabulous aprons - yes, they are making a comeback as a fashion statement. Look at these that Fay has made as samples. As an apron wearer, I am disapppointed that I won't be in the country to attend this class- these samples are beautiful...

See you at Dollies on 18th April in Newcastle and 25th April in Sydney.
Happy Easter to all , Wilma

Pam Kenta is a hoot. She came to Adelaide years ago, and we made HUGE dolls. She was so funny. A good lady. Bet you had loads of fun. I enjoy your BOLG.
Thanks Judy
