AFICC 2017 Conference

I just returned home from the Artistic Figures in Cloth and Clay Conference in Columbus Ohio where I had the honor of having taught a workshop called the Goddess.

Cyndy Sieving coordinated the event and it was so wonderfully organized with every detail planned out.  The way everything ran so smoothly was a testament to all of the hard work Cyndy and her staff performed. 

One of the best parts of attending an art doll conference is being able to visit with my doll making friends.

I lucked out to have Sherry Goshen as a roommate.  She is such a sweetheart and we quickly became good friends.

Attending an art doll conference is always inspiring because you get to see what other doll makers are up to.  Here are some photos from the exhibit gallery.

I had such a wonderful group of doll makers in my class. They are so talented and so much fun to spend time with!

There was a banquet on the last evening of the conference where some of the workshop dolls from all of the classes were exhibited.

If you don't want to wait until the next conference to take a workshop I will be teaching an online class called Flower Faeries on A for Artistic starting May 9th
