Our monthly meetings are generally open to the public. You are welcome to attend a meeting or two to see if you would like to join us.
We are now having to change our meeting place and times, Please email the club if you are interested in attending a meeting to check the location Twickenhamdollclub@earthlink.net
While we normally meet in Huntsville, we serve the entire North Central Alabama region with members from many of the surrounding communities, including Madison, Decatur, Harvest and more, and occasionally hold our meetings outside of Huntsville.
As our members are diverse, so are our doll interests. Members collections include everything from antique dolls to modern collectibles and play dolls and everything in between. We have doll maker members who create dolls in materials such as bisque, wood and cloth. We have doll painters, and doll clothing makers who sew, knit or crochet and so very much more.
Although a small club (with hopes of becoming a bigger club), we are a busy club and a very friendly one. We meet monthly, and have a variety of different events at our meetings.
We have speakers, some local and some from afar who present us all sorts of interesting doll topics; we have hands on classes taught by club members, and we regularly have Show and Tell, where members get to show off dolls from their private collections, especially recent additions.
Show and Tell can be particularly dangerous—as we get to see and learn about different dolls that we may not otherwise be familiar with and then get tempted to go out and find them for our own collections.
We also have monthly Ann Estelle fashion shows.
