November 14, 2015 Meeting of the Birmingham Doll Club-Corn Husk Doll Making Workshop

On November 14, 2015, Dorothy Clark conducted a Corn Husk Doll Making Workshop and provided lunch for the Birmingham Doll Club.  Dorothy is so talented and generous to share her crafting expertise with others.  A great time was had by all!!!
