16 Ladies, 2 Hours and a Whole Lot of Dolly Making!

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Thank You so much to Elizabeth for getting 16 wonderful women together for a 2 hour stitch off for Dolly Donations! She’s allowed me to re:blog her post from Twelve Crafts Before Christmas, on the event to share with our dolly making community!

Thank you all, what a fabulous inspiring idea! And the Dollies are Darling!


After talking with a friend of mine (Thanks Carrie!), I realized that making two dolls is good, but a group of people working together could make even more. A week ago my goal was to gather a handful of people to cut, sew, turn, stuff and paint, so I sent out a few e-mails to invite a handful of friends to bring any supplies they have and come sew with me.

In my initial invite I welcomed people to bring a friend . . . the more the merrier. Imagine my elation when sixteen people showed up with mountains of supplies - fabric scraps, sewing machines, felt, needles and thread, stuffing, paint and painting supplies, scissors and so much more. Carrie, Lori K., Ruth, Lana, Maggie, Terri, Gladys, Gretch, Star, Kathy, Jackie, Madison, Amy, Lori W., Patricia and I began cutting around 6:45, and a little over two hours later we had replaced the mountain of supplies with a mountain of dolls. (Well, actually we still had mountains of supplies because people were so generous with what they brought to donate.)

So this Saturday I'm shining the spotlight on these great gals who used their Friday night, their supplies and their talent to put together dolls for children in an orphanage in Haiti.

.......  we had such a good time together that we will be doing this again! ......
Be inspired and . . . craft on!

Again, thank you Ladies, you are all Stitching Stars!
