Convention Update: Workshops

First, thank you all for your patience. As I said before, it's been a steep learning curve for first-time convention organizers. Bear with us as we make sure that all the t's are crossed and i's are dotted before we make any major announcements.

For those of you who have registered, thank you! For those of you who haven't, I'm hoping this sneak peek at convention workshops will entice you to sign on. The registration packets will be mailed out in April with all the sign up sheets for ALL workshops.

My thanks to Workshop Coordinator Louise Leek for pulling together a great program:

Paper Dolls in Unique and Unusual Form and Format -- with Peggy Ell and Mary Young. Free.

Ins and Outs, Dos and Don'ts for New Collectors--with Louise Leek. Free.

Identifying Your 20th Century Mystery Paper Dolls--with Mary Young and Peggy Ell (Janna, I hope you're reading this and join us in August!)Free.

Paper Dolls from the Pantry--with Patti Fertel. A look at some favorite advertising paper dolls representing foods from flour to candy. You may bring advertising pieces to trade. Free.

Paper Doll and Toy Newspaper Supplements--with Carol Sullivan. Each person will receive a color copy of a PD supplement and be included in a drawing for an original. Limit: 25 people. Free.

Painting with Ralph Hodgdon--a chance to help Ralph finish several original paper dolls, pick up drawing and painting tips, and participate in a raffle for the original art. Limit: 25 people. Free.

But wait, there's more! We have 17 workshops and learnshops. I'll describe the others in the days to come, so keep checking in!
