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.

March 4, 2013, Meeting

This month's program, by Beverly Evans, showed members how to sew a simple, but charming, dress for small dolls.  Beverly brought these tiny dolls modeling of the type of dress members would  make.

She also brought these diminutive darlings for members to practice on if they didn't bring a little doll to dress.

Beverly also supplied precut material and lots of lace and ribbon.

Members, following Beverly's easy instructions, went enthusiastically to work.

Two dolls show off their newly-sewn finery.

 The refreshment table was decorated in honor of the upcoming St.Patrick's Day.

During show and tell, several members displayed their newest dolls.

Several members also brought dolls they wished to sell.
