Upcoming Creative Festival

I’ve been remiss is letting everyone know about a fun event happening next week in Iowa. The PCM Expo group is having one of their Creative Festival’s in Council Bluffs, Iowa. For those of you who don’t know where Council Bluffs is (like I didn’t) it is across the river from Omaha, Nebraska.

Julie McCullough, elinor peace bailey and myself will be doing lectures and classes. Joining us in Doll Alley will be Ute Vasina with her Trolls. You can check out the classes at the website:

One of the really fun events is the Make It Take It. I’m madly working away at my bookmarks. I’m providing a kit that includes the body already made and backed with Pelmet Vilene. In the kit is a rubber stamp of your choice so you can stamp the face, along with the pattern for making more. I’ll have colored pencils and heat set crystals to finish the bookmark.


The Festival starts on Friday, Sep. 21 with classes starting on the 20th. Both elinor and I are teaching classes that day. I’m doing my popular Facing Faces at 9am.


Hope to see some of you there!

    Hi Patti,
    I love your work and have bought 4 of your books on dollmaking. Is there a pattern or book available that has the “twovals” shown in the photo above? The two lovely watercolor/fairy-like dolls pictured together? I think they are just beautiful and would make great gifts for my nieces. Please email and let me know where I can get the information to make my ow. Thank you and happy sewing!
