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.

May 1, 2017, Meeting

Suitable for spring, members Beverly Evans and Peggy Lenke did a program on hat making.  Members were invited to bring dolls in need of a new chapeau. An array of finished hats was on display to provide inspiration. 

Beverly and Peggy provided bevies of bouquets. . . .

rolls of ribbon, and plenty of plumes (including feathers from Beverly's own chickens!) for amateur milliners. . . .

as well as the hats themselves, in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

Selecting the chapeau.

Picking the flowers.

Millinery in motion.
