Dollmakers from 12 countries were in attendance. At the convention there were workshops, awards dinners, a sales room, and a bevy of dollmakers thrilled to meet others who share this absorbing (to us!) hobby.
One of the other activities at the convention is the awarding of titles that people earn through the credentialing system. I was thrilled to get my "Masters of Dollmaking" which I have been working on for over a year.
Here I am getting my Master's with Competition Director and fantastic dollmaker Femme from The Netherlands on the right, and my friend Sue from New York on the left. I think I was more excited about getting this Master's than my M.Ed.!
Here are a few more glimpses of the dolls.
