September’s Meeting was very busy, busy, busy….
Lots of topics to cover, business to be discussed, DOLLS to be admired, bought, sold, and generally enthused about!!
Another very well-attended meeting with another brand-new Member – we all welcomed Johanna ‘Anna’ to the fold! Here’s some photos from the busy, busy day!!
A fabulous day with the usual fierce Competition entries, fabulous Dolls and friendly Members, some even wearing Easter hats! Very interesting talks were given by Anna Skaanvad (Sasha Morgenthaler dolls), Marjory Fainges (‘Annabelle’ French reproduction doll), Lyn Ryan (Danish ‘Dan’ & Sue Clarke’s silk cloth ‘Danbi’ dolls) & Cheryl Thompson (Little Tuppence dolls). 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.
