Tinker Belles Workshop with Debbie Young
The Fresno Tinker Belles had a special treat December 3rd and 4th, 2015. Debbie Young came to teach her adorable brick bungalow workshop. The 14 scale structure was based on the gingerbread style of houses found throughout the historic neighborhoods in St. Louis. Attendees met early with muffins to munch, and began building the project. We walked across the parking lot for a quick burger for lunch, and straight back to work again. About 5:30, we headed for the Olive Garden for a delicious dinner.
The next day we were ready to put the walls up, and Debbie helped us get the right angles for the roof. Off to a Mexican restaurant for lunch, more work on the Bungalow, then to Pismo’s for a great fish dinner. The entire club attended this event and we are looking forward to doing it again sometime in 2016. We are still working on the project but just about finished. It was good that Marlene Foster from Visalia and Ninalu Bovensiep from Porterville could join us. We even convinced our newest member, Judy Wiles, to try her hand at quarter scale.
We are all grateful to Linda Patterson Balabin for teaching us how to electrify our Bungalows. For the majority of us, it was the first time to have a house light up.
