Bay Quilt’s Soft Cloth Doll Club is for anyone who is looking for an active doll making community.

Whether you have made a doll, a teddy bear, want to learn soft sculpting, or just want to build your 3-D fabric skills. Master cloth doll maker Sondra Von Burg lends her 30 years of doll making expertise to lead the group each month in a new skill. Every month a different skill will be taught. Heads and needle sculpting a nose, painting the face, five fingered hands, joints, armature, hair and costuming will be covered.

April's Club: Five Fingered Hands

People are usually amazed by how small a cloth doll’s fingers can be. Of course there’s secret to it (and a tool). Master doll maker SVB will show you the trick and sell you the tool if you care to continue.

Note: If you missed the first doll club when we made heads,  you can still join the doll club now. Head and hands will likely be repeated.

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You know how to operate your sewing machine. 

Supplies: You will receive the fabric requirements once you sign up. Sondra will share her tools with anyone who prefers to try before buying, so come prepared to get something done! Students may bring a pattern from home or buy one of Sondra’s ($10.00 each). She will also bring her hand dyed Tibetan lamb’s wool wigs to every class (also $10.00 each). Sondra will have her tiny finger turning tool set for sale during class ($8.00). You can try hers before deciding if you want to buy one.

Sewing Machines and Equipment: You will need to bring your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies to class. The specific tools you need will be included in the supply list. 

About the instructor: 

Alexandra Von Burg (Sondra), has been making dolls and teaching workshops for 25 years in the Bay area. Her focus has alway been on fast and fun, which sometimes equals aerobic. She has an MFA in fine art from Pratt Institute, which has given her a foundation in design and color theory, as well as a fearlessness in creating her own method for making unique blocks and quilts.

Location:

This class is being held at the Bay Quilts located at 5327 Jacuzzi St. 3-C, Richmond, CA 94804. Bay Quilts is run by Sally Davey and her daughter, Abbey-Shane  a team of lifelong artists and crafters who have been in the quilting industry for over 30 years. They opened Bay Quilts to share their passion and knowledge with the vision of creating a community where artists, crafters, quilters, and makers of all ability can learn, grow, and create together.  This unique fabric shop is so much more than a store - from consignments quilts and gifts, and cloth figures to monthly gallery exhibitions and artist receptions to workshops.  Bay Quilts is a sanctuary for creatives of all skill level. Bay Quilts is generously offering a 10% discount to students on the day of the class.

The classroom space is on the 2nd level so you will need to be able to climb a flight of stairs. There is a convenient caddy so you don't have to carry your equipment up the stairs.

Cancellation Policy:

Class fees are non-refundable. However you may transfer the class to a friend if you let us know in advance.
