Special Pre-Convention Thursday Night Tour of the Seelbach Hotel
Presented by Larry Johnson - Thursday, Oct 4 @ 6:30 pm
Take a tour of the historic Seelbach Hilton Hotel with the man who wrote the book - literally - Larry Johnson. He is the concierge at the hotel, a local historian, and author of "The Seelbach." Plan on a fun-filled education of Louisville's first grand hotel, its many famous guests, and perhaps even the ghostly "Lady in Blue." Cost: $10 Limited to 25 Attendees SOLD OUT
Beaded and Twisted Wire Jewelry
Presented by Marcia Friend of Facets by Marcia - Saturday, Oct 6 9-11 am Green Room
Using wire and beads, students will be taught to make delicate jewelry pieces to adorn any doll. Basic jewelry techniques will be shown and no previous jewelry making experience is required. Students should bring a doll for fitting purposes. Marcia has been creating doll jewelry designs since 1998 and her jewelry has been featured in many magazines, as well as the "Tyler Boutique Essentials" line.
Cost: $10 Limited to 25 Attendees SOLD OUT
Ellowyne Luggage Workshop
Presented by Durelle Brown - Saturday, Oct 6 3-5 pm Green Room
Ellowyne will be traveling in style with her new vintage luggage collection you create for her in this fun and easy workshop. Scaled to fit any 16" fashion doll, this workshop is designed for most every skill set; the most technical skill is cutting and folding! So if you use scissors you can definitely do this project. The luggage set includes a Pullman, a train case, and a hat box created in vintage fabric print with leather accents. It is very important for you to bring along to class a good pair of scissors, a straight edge (clear works best) and a seam ripper.
Durelle is an award winning doll artist and comes to us with 10 years of experience as a doll fashoin designer, stylist, and collector. Cost: $10 Limited to 25 Attendees SOLD OUT

Join Ellowyne and friends as history is made at the FIRST EVER Wilde Weekend: "Secret Garden." Don't let the grass grow under your feet. Instead, travel to the fertile ground of Louisville, KY, where everything will be coming up roses! The Wilde adventure takes place on October 5-7, 2012. You'll sleep on a bed of roses in the enchantingly historical Seelbach Hilton Hotel - the one and the same where Tom and Daisy Buchanan held their wedding reception in The Great Gatsby. We hear the hotel is haunted by the Lady in Blue. Evangeline might find that quite interesting...
Even Ellowyne is looking forward to the festivities which will include lots of doll fun, endlessly entertaining events, and...did we mention the incredible dolls? You'll be thrilled as you leave with your pockets full of posies and an Ellowyne souvenir that will be as fresh and delicate as a flower...
Spend a weekend with Ellowyne and friends, Evangeline, Amelia, Theodora and the entire Wilde Imagination crew. You'll be amazed and delighted! The entire Wilde Weekend costs $349 per person.
