Members later continued on with the ‘Topsy-Turvy’ doll Workshop, the proceedings ending with a wonderful SALE of donated dolls & Magazines thanks to some generous Members of the public!
It was all business for the newly-elected 2018 Committee – with lots of reports, general business and plenty of discussion about upcoming events & exciting happenings! A special talk & demonstration by Founding Member & Australian Doll Expert / Author – Marjory Fainges on ‘Cleaning & Repairing old dolls’ held the Members in fascination as we learned the DO’s & DON’Ts essential to keep those precious older dolls in existence for another century & more! Lunch, followed by the fabulous ‘Topsy-Turvy Doll’ Workshop – which will be continued again at Loganlea venue at April’s Meeting. Finally, the SALE to end all SALES with a collection of beautiful donated dolls up-for-grabs along with some other treasures resurrected from the depths.
