Member Birthdays
Happy Birthday Elena and Andrea!

Meeting Minutes
Joan hosted a zoom meeting for us in July.  Andrea, Denise, Julie W., and Ann C. joined in.

Show and Tell
Andrea showed us a tatted crown she has made for a doll.  Joan is wanting to complete her Patti Culea doll and is excited about her newly purchased sewing machine.  Denise has been making eyes.  Julie W. has been working on some quilts.  Ann C. has been searching for just the right sword for her Mac which won the 2019 challenge.  She was able to get a miniature from Edinburgh Scotland which is very close to what an authentic highlander sword would look like.  She wants to make a leather scabbard for it.  Virtual tours of dollmaking studios were a treat.

Due to Covid we will be unable to have our regular meetings at the library for the remainder of the year.  We will have virtual meetings via zoom instead.
There are plans to still have our Annual Challenge which for 2020 is a Woman in History Doll but this would be done virtually with online voting.
