I'm back from teaching in Chicago for the Windy City doll convention. Nancy Gawron put the whole thing together and did a wonderful job. This was the first convention in Chicago, and the first convention Nancy had ever put together. It was a small crowd, but everyone had a great time.
Here are some classroom shots from my "Evil Queen" candlestick doll class. I had nine students -- all with different skill levels. Some were beginners and this would be there first or second doll they have made, and some were seasoned doll-makers who had been making dolls for many years.
And, here are the finished (or almost finished) dolls.
(I appologize for quality of the photographs. Some came out a bit fuzzy.)
