Sue has been busy and staying on task completing one doll a month.

Katie has been enjoying her online class with Ankie Daanen in which she is making a doll with paperclay.

Barbara completed a beautiful Greek doll named Penelope after a character in the Odyssey as well as her dog Argos.

Joan completed a cartonnage box she made in a free class from Colorway Arts.

Andrea gave us the good news that our annual Holiday Art Fair and Art Doll Show is scheduled at the Irvington United Methodist Church on November 20, 2021!  Thank you Maggie for making the arrangements for this to happen!  Plans are also in the works for our annual Christmas Party in December.  Virginia and Sue are in charge of planning the party.  There will be a gift exchange for those who wish to participate.  The theme of the party and gift were discussed.  
Barbara informed us that June 12th is the 35th anniversary of World Doll Day which is celebrated on the second Saturday of June each year.  Many celebrate the day by giving a doll to someone.  Barbara is thinking of  organizing something for our June meeting for the celebration.
