A few weeks ago I went to the Hobart Doll Show and it was just amazing. I missed last years and was determined to not to miss this one.On entering the exhibition there was hardly a single person who had a display that was not working on a doll or doll clothes. Lots of ladies knitting away on tiny needles or stuffing cloth limbs. I was so excited! I meet some wonderfully crazy people there obsessed by doll making.However most of these people where quite elderly and I heard time and time again people discussing that there where no young people wanting to know about doll craft any more.
I wish I had the time to do a few of the courses that where on offer like miniature porcelain doll painting and tiny tailoring.
So here are some photo's of my favorite displays.
Love the knitting! You know I have purchased size 1mm needles for doing just this type of knitting!
