The Austin Doll Collectors Society is an organization of antique, vintage, and modern doll collectors, dealers, and artisans. We meet on the first Monday of each month and our meetings are fun and educational. We begin with refreshments and socializing, and, following our brief business meeting, there is a special doll-related program and "show and tell." The Austin Doll Collectors Society is a nonprofit organization and is a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs.

Time for a Tea Party!

No, not that kind. . . .

No, not that kind. . . .

More like this kind. . . .

Our February 6, 2012, meeting is entitled "Afternoon Tea" and we will meet at our usual time and place, but members may dress for tea and are asked to bring a doll dressed in either her tea-time or Valentine Day's best.

January 2, 2012, Meeting

Our president, Kathy Meador, did a program on Jumeau dolls and on dolls by artist Dianna Effner.

Kathy brought some lovely examples of Jumeau dolls from her personal collection, and several members also shared some of their Jumeau dolls and French bebes.

Kathy displayed her dolls by Dianna Effner, as well.

She also brought a tiny baby doll she had sculpted.
