A WRS ZOOM STITCH-IN
A HOLIDAY DOLL’S TEA PARTY
December 11, 2021
1 – 3 PM
Ruth’s dolls are excited to invite you and your dolls (if you have them) to participate in a Holiday tea party and stitch-in! Dolls were popular during the Regency, as you will see. Ruth will give a short slide show on dolls of the period.
In the picture above, Cora, Eliza, Georgiana, Isobel, and Jane (left to right), are ready to share a cup of tea and they have their work table all ready to go. These dolls are contemporary recreations designed by doll artist Gail Wilson. The doll in the middle represents a Georgian doll, while the others are recreations of the Hitty and Izannah Walker from later periods.
The dolls of the Regency Period were primarily made of wood. These are known today as Peg Wooden dolls. I will have some slides to show a few examples of these dolls as well as the more elaborate Georgian dolls which preceded them, and the dolls which Queen Victoria played with at Kensington Palace. After the slide show, we will have plenty of work time as well as Show and Tell and sharing what everyone is working on. Bring your own refreshments. Regency costume is admired but not required.
