All meetings for now are virtual until we are allowed to meet again in the library so this agenda is subject to change.

Meeting Minutes
Present at our virtual April meeting were Andrea, Joan, Ann C., Elena, Julie W. Barbara, Katie, Martha, and Jude.

Show and Tell
Martha showed us her kitty cat quilt top she has made which will be quilted and given as a Christmas gift.  

Barbara finished Hyacinth that she had given us a preview of last meeting.  This is one of a series of dolls she is making as part of her Garden Girls Collection.  She also showed her beautiful Rose doll and a preview of  Violet in progress. Barbara will be retiring from her day job the end of June so she will have more time to concentrate on her love of doll making.  How exciting, Barbara!

Katie finished "In the Pink" a doll she made taking a class with Ankie Daanen.  This is an exquisite doll made from paperclay with very detailed costuming.  Great job, Katie!  Katie also gave us a preview of another doll she has started using Styrofoam as a base for the head.  Katie was experiencing technical difficulties so we didn't get to hear more about what she is doing.  To be continued in May!

Business Meeting
Andrea informed us that unfortunately we will not be meeting in person at the library in June as the library is closed to celebrate "Juneteenth Day".  So if Covid cooperates we will have our first in person meeting July 17 at the library. The Button Challenge doll is now scheduled for July.

Upcoming Challenges and Events

Our next virtual meeting on Zoom will be Saturday, May 15 at 10:00 a.m.  Invitations will be sent out in advance to members.
