Doll Show

The official name of our quilt show is The Manteca Quilt and Cloth Doll Show. Doll makers can enter their doll is our quilt show. We display them on a stage where they look wonderful and people can get up close and see them. The dolls below were made by Peggi S. of our guild. The cat and pumpkin doll are made out of felt. Peggi sews them by hand and designs them as she sews. I think they are so cool. The picture below is of a lion doll. He has a needle sculpted face and hand painted eyes.
Here is a old man doll.....love his large nose.
This doll has green hair and a beautiful green out fit.
Here is a group of dolls made by the Flying Phoebe doll club from the bay area. They also had a booth in the show and sold all kinds cool stuff. The Flying Phoebe's have a web site here.
I hope you enjoyed seeing pictures of the dolls in our show. A least once a year we have a doll workshop and I really enjoy making dolls. Its so different then making a quilt.
