The doll club I belong to had a big celebration this past weekend.
Twenty years ago this month, a group of ladies decided they were having so much fun taking a cloth doll class that they wanted to keep doing it! They formed the Pin-Ella-Ps and have been meeting and crafting and sharing ever since.
We celebrated by inviting previous members to join us for a day of remembering. We had a lot of dolls - both old and new - to share with each other.
There were long lost friends to greet
and picture albums to go through.
A lot has changed in 20 years. We meet in a different building now, but we gathered in front of the original meeting place for a photo. The church has been many things, including a quilt shop, and is now a private residence . . . so we had to be good!
I am one of the "new kids" in this group, but they feel like family to me. Dollmakers are just like that I guess. I'm so glad they got together all that time ago. It really was a good idea!
