June Meeting Minutes
Unfortunately there was no official meeting again in June.  Some members got together via Zoom.  Thank you Joan for putting that together for us.  The first meeting on June 20 included Joan, Maggie, Ann C., Katie, and Julie W.  The second meeting on June 27 included Joan, Vicki, Andrea, Dimple, Katie, Denise, Ann C., and Julie W.

Show and Tell
At our zoom meetings members could see each other and the room they were in.  What fun to get tours of some of their studios!  A special treat was to see and hear from Dimple  who lives in Missouri.  She shared a couple of new dolls she has created.  Joan has been dying fabric, Vicki shared a quilt she had made.  Andrea continues her tatting and showed us a crown and basket she had made (miniature doll size of course!)  Katie has loved making her Blue Bird and plans to make more.  Ann C. is working on her Poe Challenge doll.

  Andrea informed us that we still will not be able to have a meeting at the library.  One reason is our room is being used as a holding room for returned materials.
