2011 International Paper Doll Convention update

The deadline is fast approaching to take advantage of the $275 registration fee! After Dec. 1, the fee is $295.

Next year's convention will continue our time-honored tradition with many of the things attendees look forward to, including the Competition, Raffles, Workshops, Tours and, of course, Souvenirs. A tour of the QVC studios has already been planned, and there is much more to come. And of course there will be a Sales Room! 

By the way, register before Dec. 1 and you not only get a price break, you'll receive a bonus souvenir when the Convention Packet is mailed out. Click on the forms below to save to your computer, print out, fill out and mail out to David as soon as possible so you don't miss out.

David Wolfe will again emcee the events and also act as host/manager. There will be a kick-off registration party as well as three evening banquet meals, and a bumper crop of souvenir paper dolls created by a roster of many, many leading artists who are favorites with collectors.

As always, there will be a raffle room filled with desirable donations. Also planned is a new Silent Auction for serious collectors. It will feature original artwork by published artists as well as a few very valuable vintage treasures.

The annual competition will take on a new aspect, "My Favorite Paper Doll," and awards will be based on a popularity poll of conventioneers. Creative participation for all will be encouraged with a "Coloring and Cut-Out Bee," a big get-together where attendees will chat with each other while coloring and cutting-out a very special selection of paper dolls by many artists. There will be a number of creative workshop experiences and lively presentations, too.

Who's standing behind David Wolfe's Liberty Belle? It may surprise you to know that she has many old friends:

Yes, there will be many rare, antique and vintage paper dolls to ogle and to purchase. We wouldn't have it any other way.

  1. It sounds like you all will have such a great time! I especially think the Coloring and Cutout Bee would be wonderful.
