Their first exhibition broke attendance records at the Odlin Gallery and members of the Dollectables Cloth Doll Group are hoping for a similar response this year.

The show is open until Sunday and features a huge range of dolls made by 10 club members.

A large Christmas display includes heirloom Christmas stockings, a nativity set and a variety of Santas. Hat fans will find a display of miniature examples of the hat-maker's craft created by a group member who used to be a milliner.

Dragons, clowns, gnomes, mermaids, bathing beauties, a bride and groom and a selection of bears and other soft toys mean there is something to interest all age groups. There is even a choir, complete with musical director.

The show also includes the results of the $2 Shop Challenge, where group members sourced their materials from the budget-style stores.

Travelling Fairy Books involve all club members, with each completing a couple of pages of a book before passing it on to another crafter.

"It can take up to eight months before you see the finished product," said group member Norma Coram. Dollectables exhibition, Odlin Gallery, Myrtle St, 10am - 4pm daily until Sunday, free entry.
