Our next meeting is:
Saturday 9th March
TIME: 11.00-16.00 (please note earlier start time)
LOCATION: St Mary Abbotts Centre (Big Hall), Vicarage Gate, Kensington, London W8 4HN
The AGM will take place in the morning.
The Faith Eaton Cup (formerly the Terrot Cup} and the Florence King Memorial Plate entries will be judged during the afternoon. The Coleman Award for contributions through writing to further our knowledge, will be presented.
The Faith Eaton Cup is awarded for handmade dolls clothes, sewn by a member of the club, and the Florence King Memorial Plate (formally known as the Commemoration Award) is for a knitted or crochet outfit for a doll of any size. For both the competitions it is the clothing which will be judged, not the doll. The clothing need not be displayed on a doll. Please bring your entries to the AGM.
The afternoon talk will be on Queen Victoria’s Dolls, presented by Carol Cameron
Please bring along Grodnertals 3” to 9” pre 1850 for the Show and Tell

The Silent Auction items will be the Ana Syrian refugee dolls, examples of which have previously featured in Plangon, and at a couple of meetings. All proceeds will go into the charity pot.
