rAnother amazing Chat’n’Snap arranged by Dee.
The theme this year was Girl Guides, Brownies and Cub Scouts and we were not to be disappointed.
At the rear of the village hall Dee had set out a lovely camp display for all participating, Sasha’s and Gregor’s to take part , there was even a course doll and Studio doll Brownie.
There was a camp site with a brownie ring and a wonderful tent. My girls who consisted of Ruth ,a blonde centre part and Pippin, a wider faced brunette and Binky my 1968 fringe girl in Girl Guide uniform, were trying to encourage the others to join in there competition to guess the bears name, which they thoroughly seemed to enjoy.
There were some lovely raffle prizes, A blonde Sasha which was won by Janet Myhill-dabbs,a blonde Gregor with painted eyes by Shelly, which came with his own trousseau , which was won by Jane Woodward and then Jane’s Mum Iris won the Brunette Gregor.

Below we were visited by this little band of cuties whose name i cannot recall. So if you own one could you please give me some information on them.
The last photo is of a doll made by me using a plaster course dolls head and the body pattern from the Just like Sasha Doll pattern and she is cuddling my little baby that I re-rooted the hair on and Janet created her for me.
I would just like to say a big thank you to Dee for once again taking the time to organise this event for us to enjoy xx
If I have any of the information wrong and you would like me to change it, just let me know and if you would like me to add the names of your dolls I will be happy to do that too.
Thank you Theresa. You have really captured so many wonderful moments at the CnS plus the fabulous dolls. I will definitely look again and again. It looks like the best of Sasha times! 🙂 xxx
Thanks Ginger everyone had a wonderful time x
A really lovely and most interesting post. Many thanks as I feel now that I was almost there too! Great seeing all the Sasha collectors busily buying and chatting. Super sales tables and huge variety of spectacular visiting dolls.
Enjoy your birthday and visit to Switzerland.
Thank you Kendal and it is such a shame that you could not make it this time, but your health must come first. I am so excited about my visit to Switzerland I could actually implode. As to my Birthday I have decided that I will be 27 this year, hope to speak to you soon xxxxx
Thank you SO much for sending these wonderful photos! I appreciate knowing the names to go with the faces, as I have come to know many Sasha fans via email but never in person!!
I also loved the doll photos very much; I had never seen the English Toddler ( I assume they belong to Brenda W ?) and of course Dawn’s studio toddler is a special treat, but she does come to the USA so I have been fortunate to see some of her dolls (and also at her home after the festival in SUA in 2012).
Again, I appreciate your making these pics available to others, and it surely looked like everyone was having a really GREAT time!!! All those Scouting uniforms were FABULOUS. Did everyone have to make a Scout uniform? Were there any for SALE?
Really interesting post Theresa thanks for taking the time to do it! It really looked as if everyone had a great time!
Thanks it was a great day
Hi Susan so glad you enjoyed the post, it was indeed a great day. Those who wanted to take part in the Scouting displayed their dolls in uniforms some people made their own and some were bought. There is a lovely lady who often sells Sasha costumes and is happy to make one for you if you should ask.
Fantastic work at taking all those amazing photos Theresa, I have loved reliving all those memories xx
It was a fab day, wasn’t it xx
Very lovely photos. Thank you so much for sharing them with those of us who can’t be there.
Wow, such lovely photo’s! I definitely want to attend in 2017 if I can! Looks so exciting and full of temptations….
