News - Memories - Izzy Doll Project

Our 2008/2009 Guild challenge was to contribute to the Izzy Doll project. Guild members worked on these at home but we also had sessions where we worked as a group, knitting, crocheting and chatting.

In May of 2009 the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners held their biennial conference at the Nottawasaga Inn in Alliston.
Usually at these conferences there is a large display room where the guilds show off items that the members have made.This time, the displays were set up in the individual guest rooms occupied by conference attendees.
We placed all of these adorable little dolls on the queen sized bed and we had enough to cover the whole surface.
What an amazing display it was!
