The Canadian Doll Festival was held June 7 - 10th. at the Village Creek Country Inn at Pegion Lake Resort. It was exciting and the most fun ever. Our theme of School Days brought out the student in all of us and one very stern school teacher played by Marla Eve from Ontario Canada. Marla played the part to perfection and won the best costume award for the evening. We had spelling bees and a painting project. Oh what fun we all had. Much to his amazement a gentleman from California won the art competition.
The competition room was overwhelming for me to stand and look at all the wonderful dolls. To realize that I had taught all but two of the Ladies with dolls in the competition of 75 dolls. My heart was bursting at the wonderful work that was there for all to see. It was definitely the Deb Holt award Show. Deb not only received her Triple Crown of Doll Making, she won the Millie and Magge as well. Congratulations on your great success, your dolls were wonderful. Congratulations to Karen McKay who won the Viola for her rendition of Peaches, and was chosen by Stan. The Master of Doll Making degrees were achieved by Nancy Welligan, Judy Winter and Lois Leskosek. Well done. I was given the Master Educator award by the Doll Artisan Guild. I thank the Guild for that.
I want to thank all who attended, especially those who made the long trek from California and Ontario Canada, you came a long way. Each one who attended made the event FUN FUN FUN and I hope to see all of you at the next show and to those who did not come and could have, you missed out on a very good time. Thanks Very Much to All that attended!
Join in this wonderful celebration and time of sharing!
