May Show and Tell

Our first quilt was brought in by Teresa and is an example of the beautiful work that she does on her customers quilt tops.

The next three are from Missy, our president. Sorry for the fuzziness on these, my camera gave me some problems that day.

 Sue never disappoints and always has something to show. I believe this is for comfort quilts.

Jan has a dress that she has made for her granddaughter.

Dorothy brought these two beauties to share.

Jolene brought this scrumptious looking ice cream cone quilt.

It looks like Anita had great fun playing with her fabric stash on these two. I think I may have to make a diamonds quilt like this gorgeous one.

Since the general meeting was about doll making, the membership was asked to bring in any dolls they may have to share. These two pictures are samples of those dolls. Lots and lots of talent in this group -- thanks ladies!

May General Meeting

In May we had a very exciting meeting with three accomplished art doll makers. Each of them set up a wonderful display of their works and told the stories behind their dolls.

The first to speak was Teresa Pietras from Columbia who has had her work published in contemporary doll magazines. Teresa is a wonderful artist who has recently added dolls to her repertoire.

Gracie Coleman is from the Charlotte area and has been doll making for many years. She also brought some of the dolls that she has lovingly collected over the years, including the bottom two photos.

Panze Roberts is also from Charlotte and a long time doll maker. She uses a wonderful technique of beading on her doll faces which is quite beautiful and unique.
