Dolls for All Seasons

The long awaited "Seasons" challenge dolls were greeted with enthusiasm and awe last Saturday. The photo above shows detail of some of the exquisite work presented - the challenge was to "create your own fabric" for a doll using one of the basic patterns provided. What wonderfully creative results this challenge produced. Perhaps a little disappointing there were not quite a few more... but the finished ones were really amazing works of textile art.

 Other "Show and Tell" certainly did not pale into insignificance and the now expected high quality creations were exciting and inspiring . We had creatures great and small,  the exquisite and outrageous, new obsessions - embellishing by machine and mixed media art quilts, and a doll collector's Lenci treasures.

Good news : Hello Dollies will have a display of challenge dolls  at the Craft Show in Newcastle in August!
