Today's meeting was inspiring and productive!  If you were unable to be at the meeting you missed some truly outstanding show and tell:  dolls from ODACA, UFDC, ADAA, dolls going to NIADA and Quilt Festival, and more.  Then for our program Marsha Krohn demonstrated how she constructs pedestals for her dolls.  It was creative and interesting and very useful!  Marsha always gives a great program.  Gwynne Ross has planned some excellent programs for us in the next few months as well. 

Next, we had a very fruitful business meeting.  There are lots of opportunities coming up.  A couple of things I'd like to highlight:  dolls for the TAODA "Block Party II" exhibit at Quilt Festival are due at the October meeting, as well as dolls for the Sugar Land Art Fest.  Our 2014 gallery show, "Every Figure Tells a Story" will be held in December at 18 Hands Gallery in Houston.   I need photos now of dolls you plan to submit to this show for advance publicity!  Please email me your photos!

Be sure to read the meeting minutes (which will be emailed to you next week) for all the details on these shows and other TAODA opportunities and goings-on.  Here's to a creative and inspiring fall!
