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 the May virtual meeting were Andrea, Julie W., Katie, Ann C., Maggie, Martha, Jude, Barbara, and Joan.

Show and Tell
Barbara showed her Marie Antoinette doll (headless of course) made with silk and ribbon embroidery.
Maggie showed a doll she had made from an old magazine pattern.  Her cat stole the show and got everyone's attention.  Maggie said it's the cat's house and Maggie just lives there!
.Andrea showed some tatted earrings she had made.
Katie has been busy making some original clothing she designed.
Ann C. had made some custom table runners and place mats.
Martha showed a quilt she had finished.

Business Meeting
There was some discussion of changing the name of our club to include other media used in dollmaking in addition to cloth and the fact that we are art doll creators.  There will be more discussion at future meetings when more members can attend hopefully in person.
 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.

June 12, 2021  World Doll Day
Elena and Julie W.
Elena and Julie W. got together at Elena's home on World Doll Day and exchanged their doll creations.  It was a wonderful relaxing evening, mostly spent inside do to the heat, but Elena's beautiful patio was too inviting to resist and they enjoyed tasty treats and wine in the evening shade.

Upcoming Challenges and Events
July - Button Challenge Doll
November - Edgar Allen Poe Challenge Doll

Next Meeting
Our next virtual meeting on Zoom will be Saturday, June  19  at 10:00 a.m.  Invitations will be sent out in advance to members.
