Challenge Results
The quarterly challenge was due at the June meeting. Mary had handed out a brown-skinned cloth doll and some fabric for participants to make a doll, or anything they wished.  
Stephanie sculpted the most adorable cat face and paws on her doll and dressed her in a kitty-pretty dress.

Anne used the cloth body to create more than one doll.
Each one was so original and clever.

Tani sculpted and painted a beautiful face on her doll and dressed her in ethnic garb.

Suzanne designed a very cute outfit for her doll, topped with curly fiber hair.

Zanaib chose to deconstruct her challenge doll and fashioned a cloth necklace instead. Something she can wear...
not just set on a shelf. Clever girl!
 Show and Tell
Several people brought show and tell items to the meeting  but had packed them away before pictures could be taken. Below are a few examples of the necklaces Donna made and sold at the ProArts Open Studios in Alameda. They are made from stuffed fabric yoyos.
