Old Business

Our March meeting will be held in person at the library.  Katie will present the program on feet.  Katie will present some information on Spirit Dolls at the March InFiber meeting and report back to us at our March meeting.

New Business

Katie proposed doing a doll show at the October 21-22, 2022 retreat.  The attendees at the Retreat Center enjoyed the few dolls that were on display at our last retreat, and at least one doll was sold.  Barbara and Colleen will help with planning and setup.

Maggie will not be available to coordinate the November doll show this year, but she has good notes.  Andrea will coordinate, but it would be appreciated if someone else would like to help.  


Since the meeting was held by Zoom, we watched a short video on Spirit Dolls.  A group held a two-hour workshop to make Celtic Spirit Dolls.  There are many examples of Spirit Dolls in the video. 

Here are two more videos that might be of interest.

Denise also gave us the information for the Earthenware faces.

Lyn also teaches online at Teachable:
