Sasha Festival 2011 - post 5

NOTE: captioning is still in progress, but should be complete by this weekend. A million thanks to Meg Richardson for helping me put names with faces!

I uploaded almost 475(!) Sasha Festival pictures to an album on Picasa. There are pictures of Sasha dolls and Sasha doll enthusiasts, group meals and gatherings, Dress-A-Sasha contest entries, and Children's Fund Auction items. There are also pictures of two special displays: dolls and clothing in conjunction with the release of Sasha Doll: A History, and a Doll Quilt Display. The lighting wasn't always great, and my hand wasn't always steady, so please excuse any blurry photos. Here is a slideshow of the entire album:

Clicking on the picture below will take you directly to my Picasa album. There you can see all the photos from this slideshow, along with descriptive captions. Feel free to email me or add a comment if you know of corrections or additional information for any of my captions.

Thank you SO SO SO much, Francine! I'm glad you and Boo had a lovely time. We missed being there, but will hopefully make it to the NY Funday for our own Sasha fix. Your pictures really made my day. Thank so much for sharing them!

Lovely to see my friend Dawn in the photos and other friends who write to me who I had no idea what they looked like! Love Sarah xx

Thank you for sharing your photos from the Sasha Festival. As I looked through them all, and was able to put faces to names that I have heard, it made me feel like I was a part of this wonderful meeting. I am sure that you really enjoyed it and I look forward to reading my copy of the new Sasha History book when it arrives with me.
