At the May 2004 meeting we began THE GREAT ELF QUEST - 40 elves were made and each one would go to 5 different members, where they would collect various objects and different items of clothing, so that at the end of the quest, each participant would receive their own elf back complete with a box full of extra items.

We aim to set up a Post Office at the monthly meetings, so that those that could would be able to swap the boxes and save on postage.

Jennifer & Annemarie were appointed Post-Officers

AT THE JUNE 2004 MEETING WE HELD A DISPLAY OF DOLLS MADE FROM PATTERNS BY ELINOR PEACE BAILEY. OUR CLUB BEGAN ABOUT NINE YEARS AGO FROM A SMALL GROUP THAT ATTENDED ELINOR'S FIRST CLASS IN PERTH ORGANISED BY PATCHWORKS OF WA.

SOME OF THE DOLLS DATED BACK TO THAT CLASS AND SOME OF THE FACES WERE PAINTED BY ELINOR HERSELF



WE HOPE TO HIGHLIGHT THE WORK OF VARIOUS DESIGNERS AT FUTURE MEETINGS.
