GUMNUT DOLLIES NEWCASTLE is a group of creative doll makers, using a variety of different media. We warmly welcome new members and visitors. Our dolls range from the naive to sculpted art dolls created with cloth, clay, found objects and much more. We meet on the second Saturday of the month and are based in Newcastle, Australia. Our group has its beginnings with HELLO DOLLIES a doll makers' group established by Anne's Glory Box and GUMNUTTERS, a group of like minded doll enthusiasts.
The August meeting was a special one - the last one in the old premises. From next month, Hello Dollies will be at the new Anne's Glory Box at 5 Portland Place, New Lambton. It was also special to welcome Shannon's gorgeous new daughter, Miranda . We all agreed that Shannon was the winner of "show and tell" this month. Another special visiitor was Paige, who loved Vicki's doll.
We also had lots of fun making little polymer clay faces for needle felted bodies.
I will be in Papua new Guinea next month , so will catrch up with everyone in October.
Keep having fun creating those fantastic dolls. Best wishes to all, Wilma
