Summer happenings

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

John and I just returned from an amazing 5 day trip to the Navajo Nation.  Canyon de Chelly, the Hubbell Trading Post, the mountains, scenery all breathtaking.  But, the Navajo women we came to service – no words can express our feelings. NavajoCanyon10NavajoApr25Craft5

At Broken Arrow Bible Camp, working with the Navajo women having fun making things to beautify their homes.

 

 

 

 

We are back home and I now need to prepare for two fun projects.  First, an online class on Dollstreet.  I’ve not done an online class in years, but know this is important.  So many can’t get to venues where we teach, so this is the next best thing.  This class starts in June.

Maridrial is a free standing, wired all cloth doll.  She’s 18-inches tall and full of fun techniques.  This class is great fun and one I know you’ll enjoy.  Here’s the link to sign up:  http://store.dollstreetdreamers.com/stores_app/Browse_Item_Details.asp?Store_id=235&page_id=23&Item_ID=1784

And, my next “in person” workshop will be at Piecemaker’s Country Store in Costa Mesa, CA August 7 & 8, 2015.  I’ll be teaching one of my favorite dolls – Helen.   She’s on the cover of my Creative Cloth Doll Couture book, but also included in the combined book Creative Cloth Doll Collection.   To get more details contact Piecemaker’s at:  classes@piecemakers.com,  or 714-641-3112.
