Arley Berryhill comes to town

This January, our club president Tery, invited Arley Berryhill to come to New Jersey and teach a two day class on costuming. We showed up to class with our mannequins and were eager to begin. Our club members, and invited guests, had the opportunity to learn from a very talented doll artist, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, thanks to the generosity of our sweet club member, Anne Marie. After our class came to a close, on Sunday, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner, had show and tell, and our clubs holiday gift exchange. I can't put into words, the surge of energy that went through the room when we handed each other our hand made gifts. Colleen made me a beautiful fairy she named Eva. A great time was had by all.
