Meetings are held at 2:00 pm on the first Saturday of each month, from February to November.
In December members enjoy our annual Christmas party. The club's charity for that year is also presented with a cheque from our fund-raising.
We meet at: St. Philip's Church Hall
84 Galway Avenue
Popular Choice: At each meeting members are encouraged to bring along a doll in a predetermined category to share and talk about if they wish. Members present at the meeting are given the opportunity to vote for the doll they feel best fits the allocated category. The overall winner for the year, announced at the club's December meeting, will be presented with a trophy.
Speakers: Whenever possible we invite someone to come and speak at our meetings about subjects we feel may be of interest to members. We try to link this with the doll of the month category.
Paddy's Market: These are usually held two or three times a year. Members may hire a table for the afternoon and sell any items they wish. This is a chance to grab some bargains too! Non-members can also hire a table but this is strictly by arrangement as space is limited.
Trading Table: These are available on non-Paddy's Market days only. Members may hire a table to sell items at the meeting. Non-members can also hire a table but this is strictly by arrangement as space is limited.
10% Table: This is held on non-Paddy's Market days only. Members are welcome to bring doll/craft related items for sale. If an item is sold, 10% of the proceeds (non-members 15%) goes to the club.
Show & Tell: Members are encouraged to bring anything from their collections. Any unidentified doll can be brought along and shown, as other members may be able to help with information.
Library: Our Club Library can provide excellent resources such as books and magazines about dolls, teddies, fashions, patterns, doll related items, etc.
Magazine: Members receive a copy of our quarterly magazine which contains club news and information about happenings in the "doll world". The magazine also includes interesting, informative articles and advertisements for many doll-related businesses and services including doll museums.
