Meeting Minutes
Present at the June virtual meeting were Andrea, Ann C., Katie, Jude, Maggie, Elena, Joan and Julie W.

Show and Tell
Katie showed a paperclay doll in progress, with a sculpted body and head.  Could it be a Poe Challenge doll?  We will have to wait and see.
Ann C. is repairing a vintage crocheted afghan for a friend.  It's a bigger job than it seemed at first, but the rose blocks are very pretty.
Joan showed  some beautiful cartonnage boxes she had made for a friend with dividers made with adorable dog fabrics.  
Andrea showed her beginning bobbin lace samples from her week at the John C. Campbell Folk School.  She had planned to go last year, but classes had been cancelled and rescheduled for this year.  Her samples were amazing!
Elena showed a wonderful sitting clown doll.  We are hoping we can talk her into telling us her secret to getting him to sit so well.
Julie W. showed her cute doll made by Elena and given to her on World Doll Day.

Several of our members were excited to be going to Danville, IL for a retreat at Threads of Time the end of June.  This would be their first time being together since the beginning of Covid.
