If you didn't make it to the Manteca Doll Show the first weekend of March, here is a photo of the stage exhibit. More than half of the dolls in the exhibit were made by Phoebes! Way to go girls! What would they do without us?

April 15 Associate Meeting

Hello Phoebes,
If you missed the April Associate meeting held at the Boys and Girls Club in San Leandro on April 15, you missed an evening of colorful dolls and projects, information on upcoming events, and the happy faces of our Phoebe family members who attended and joined together in finishing a bunch of stump dolls for our July 10 outreach day at the Alameda County Fair. It was wonderful to have elinor peace bailey visiting from Oregon to blow us all out of the water with her parade of fabulous dolls.
The exchanges, challenges, and the "show and tell" dolls made by Phoebe members and associates were fantastic. They were proof of the great amount of imagination, craftmanship, and passion for artistic expression that resides in all of you!
