  • Hello Dolly

    Her hair is long and flowing and Baby Boomers would take one look at her 1960s bell bottoms and love beads and call her a hippie.

    Literally.

    Nine women who attended Patti Medaris Culea’s “Create a cloth doll” workshop this past weekend at a local craft shop, patterned their dolls after “Elizabeth,” created by the instructor,  Culea.
