School will soon be back  in session!  You know what that means...time for some me time!  Join us at Attic Window Quilt Shop on Thursdays in September and October for Gail Wilson's Kate Greenaway dolls.  The price for class is $50 (includes all the Thursdays in Sept and Oct).  Students will need to purchase their pattern $18, and supplies (body fabric, skin and face paint, and roving, etc.) from  For a description and ordering info of the dolls, see cloth dolls page 6 on Gail's website.  
Teacher Julie L. sent these pictures of the beautiful dolls that she made and you will be making in her class. For the first class, students need to bring their sewing machines and basic sewing supplies.  You will also need a half yard of good quality quilting fabric in a khaki or tan color and thread to match. You must also, have the KG doll pattern from Gail Wilson. Pick up a supplies list and class syllabus at the first class.
Special note:  You might want to ask Gail if she has a kit available and purchase that as Julie no longer has extras of this doll. Students who purchase a pattern also need to purchase paints, roving, small buttons, etc. to complete their doll and Gail is the best place to do it because the perfect color skin and face detail paints and very tiny buttons are very hard to find locally. When you place your order, mention that you are a participating in a class that starts Sept 1, to be sure you get your pattern in time. Order at least two weeks in advance please! 

Class starts Thursday, Sept 7, 2017 and runs every Thursday thru September and October.
