Fort Mason Craft Show Rocks!

The "Celebration of Craftswomen" 2-weekend show at Herbst Pavillion, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, is in full swing. Ten Phoebes, Mary, Zanaib, Wanda, VonZetta, Kelly, Suzanne, Colleen, Daisy, Bonnie and Donna P, shared a booth for the opening weekend, Nov. 27 and 28. Initially intending to only have a booth one weekend, the Phoebes were given first choice at a cancellation for the second weekend, Dec. 4 and 5. The show promoters were impressed by the amount of interest and enthusiasm in our booth expressed by shoppers. If you couldn't make it to the show last weekend, you still have a chance to see the exhibits this weekend. Go to to obtain a $2 off admission coupon. The show is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Phoebes have so far collected four pages of names of people interested in either our free beginning doll-making classes or in attending our meetings. We are so excited and looking forward to meeting these aspiring doll makers.

The next Phoebe Associate Meeting will be held January 20, 7 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club on Marina in San Leandro.

The January Challenge will be "The Masculine Challenge." Make a doll or piece of art that is male...any age, any size, any style.

The January Exchange will be "Hearts." Make a small item using hearts as a theme. What will it be? A pin cushion, a collection of heart charms, a necklace, a little book, a paperweight... make whatever is fun for you!

Don't forget to check out the Phoebe Snowman Window Exhibit at "The Book Shop" on B Street in Hayward. The exhibit runs the entire month of December. Let it snow!
