Snapshots from Convention: Hitty workshop!

I was pleased to have the privilege of taking a Hitty workshop with Gail Wilson!  I’d long been a fan……

Participants received a kit, containing everything they’d need.  The doll’s head was already done, as well as some preliminary machine-sewing on the body parts.  Then we carved the wooden arms and feet, painted arms, feet, and (turned wood) legs, and assembled the entire doll!  It was a blast!

Yay!
