A message from Marge Meisinger’s daughter…

Posted July 20, 2015 By sweethreads

webPromoshot1We just received this email from Dana Gaddy, Marge Meisinger’s daughter. Marge and Earl, her husband, were instrumental in the founding of Modern Doll Collectors, Inc.  I’m sure she has some very special dolls in her collection! 

The McMasters-Harris doll auction will take place on July 30-31 that features the estate of Marge Meisinger. As you know, Mom’s collection had many modern dolls from the 30’s to present. The website is www.McMastersHarris.com. The money raised will help take care of my Dad, Earl Meisinger, who is 95 and in a memory care unit at an assisted-living facility.
Both my parents loved MDCC, went to conventions, and helped keep it going.
Thanks for considering my request.
Dana Gaddy

Calling all doll costumers!

Posted April 1, 2015 By sweethreads


  • We still have a few spots open for designers in our 2015 Fashion Doll Runway Competition & Charity Event!
  • This year our model will be the 18.5 inch Evangeline Ghastly fashion doll by Wilde Imagination.    Our theme is My Favorite Things — but with a twist!  Using a Hollywood film from any era as your favorite thing and inspiration,  designers will transform Evangeline into a character from that movie.  This theme is wide open for interpretation.  Think of the possibilities!
  • Entries will featured on our website & Facebook page, displayed at MDCC 2015®  in Reno, Nevada and  auctioned to benefit our chosen charity at a gala event on Thursday, September  17th.  Designers get to showcase their work & winners will receive fun prizes donated by our participating manufacturers.  But the real focus of FDR is to benefit a worthy charity.
  • Our 2015 charity, chosen by Connie Lowe of Marbled Halls, is Camphill Special School in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania.  Click on the link to read all about this great school!
  • Click on the graphic to see complete details including our submission guidelines.  Last year our winner was a first time participant.  This year, it could be you!

Salesroom Promotional Give-away 2015!

Posted February 27, 2015 By sweethreads


We’ve had so much fun with our Salesroom Promotional Give-away at our last two conventions that we’ve decided to do it again for 2015! As you probably know by now, this is a drawing that you can’t buy tickets for. The only way you can earn tickets for the give-away is to be a seller in the salesroom (for which you get 4 free tickets) or a buyer, to receive a ticket for every $10.00 you spend with our wonderful vendors.  Sellers can also earn  additional tickets by purchasing items from other vendors.  Help us make the 2015 Salesroom Promotional Give-away the bet yet!

This year our give-away will feature Deva Vu by the Tonner Doll Company and a wardrobe for her. If you plan to be a salesroom vendor, please consider donating an outfit or accessories. In addition, we are inviting those of you who create doll clothing to participate in building her trunk set even if you cannot attend convention. It’s a great way to advertise your business, or just a really fun thing to do that will help our convention.

For more info, please contact our Salesroom Chair, Jill Sanders at:  janci1@frontier.com
