AFIC is Artistic Figures In Cloth doll conference held in Columbus, Ohio.
Cyndy and her staff did a FANTASTIC job making this a WONDERFUL doll conference. You should think about going to AFIC in 2009. You will love it. I had a wonderful time. I had wonderful students in all 3 of my classes I taught. I met some of my friends and I met new friends. It was a FUN conference. Nita Butler and I had lots of fun making Mia. I now have a new class sample when I teach Jasmine again. I gave Nita Butler the original Jasmine. Carolyn Harris has one of my Mia sample dolls called Romance and Sammy has the original Mia. Martha has one of my Ruby sample dolls and Carolyn has one of my Ruby sample dolls. When I teach I make a doll along with the class so the students sees step by step how I make the doll. I will have a new sample dolls for the next time I teach. I like giving my sample dolls to my students. We have a drawing at the end of each class for the sample dolls.

Here's a few pictures of the conference. I didn't get to take too many pictures but I'm sure there will be others that did. Enjoy looking at the pictures.
Love & Hugs
