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.

August 6, 2018, Meeting

Members Sallie Howard and Pam Wolf did a program on the recent United Federation of Doll Clubs Convention that took place on July 17th to July 21st in Phoenix, Arizona.  Next year's convention will be in Nashville, Tennessee.   Sallie and Pam shared many of the new dolls they acquired at the convention (thanks to Ann Meier for taking these photographs!).  Pam brought this elegant reproduction French fashion doll made by Becky Hisle. she is 16" tall. The dress she is wearing is made from a kit by Patty Ulrich .

Sallie shared a number of her new dolls. This lass dressed for an expedition is by Ruby Red Galleria and was the convention souvenir doll, fitting into the convention theme, " Passport to Adventure." 

Sallie acquired two versions of that beloved wooden doll known as Hitty.

This little Hitty was a luncheon souvenir.

This little girl is Tibby by artist Judy Porter.  She is 6 inches tall and is a one of a kind creation.

Elaine Jackson brought this sweet vintage cloth doll for show and tell. The doll has a painted face, yarn hair, and stitched fingers.
