Happy New Year 2013

January 19, 2013 - First Meeting of the Year

Liz Marten's display at our November 2012 show.

We had a blast!  If you weren't with us this is what we did:

We were treated to a "King Cake" and a bag of Mardi Gras Goodies from Liz and Bill Marten.  Thanks to both of them for the thoughtful goodies.

And Carole Staples wowed us with a still-warm pumpkin pie.  Needless to say, all calories are welcome.  Thank you, Carole, for your hard work in the kitchen this morning!

We discussed Guild activities in 2012 and reviewed our favorites in order to incorporate more of the same this year - plus MUCH more! 

We have loved the meeting room here at the UC Blue Ash College so much that we have decided to make it our primary meeting place.  Therefore, the February through April meetings will be held in Room 119 Walters Hall.  The address is listed on the right side of this screen.

Again, we will meet with the Indy Doll Club in May - location details forthcoming.  The doll challenge is any character from Alice in Wonderland.  The August meeting will find the Guilded Lilies (Columbus group) coming to Cincinnati to meet with us.  This year we will be presenting various demonstrations on manipulating fabric. If you have a special technique, please let us know!

If you look at the Events page, you will see the beginning of our annual plan of events in more detail.  This will be updated as new details are available.

Show and Tell:

Katie Storer (Christmas ornament worn as necklace!)

Robbie Porter (new wall doll in many incarnations)

Carole Staples (designs new fashion statement dolls!)

Sue Odell taught a workshop on painting fabric to immitate antique dolls.  Here is the master herself!

That is all for now - please know that all are welcome to our meetings - if you are at all curious about what we do, please come and visit!  We will see you again next month.  Katie and Holly

  1. I became a follower just because I love this site and want to keep up with your lovely events even though I am a doll maker living in California! My youngest sister lives in Minnesota with her lovely hubby and kiddos and is a doll maker too.
