Welcome to the world of doll collecting
The Doll Collectors Club of NSW is for anyone who makes, restores, dresses, or collects dolls and doll-related items of all types and eras – from antique, or vintage to modern. Whether your collection is porcelain or plastic, ragdolls or high fashion models, childhood dolls or a lifetime hobby, the Club is a place to meet like-minded collectors and share a mutual interest in doll collecting.
Visitors are welcome to our meetings, or when you are ready for more, membership includes the quarterly Club magazine and allows entry into Club competitions and special events throughout the year.
All are welcome to our annual Doll Fair as well as regular displays, workshops and talks we present to further educate members, visitors and our local community in the history and art of doll making and associated creative activities.
The Doll Collectors Club of NSW Inc normally meets on the first Saturday of each month (excluding January), all members and visitors welcome.
Following the success of our October meeting, the next general meeting will be on Saturday, November 7th, at the Granville Town Hall, Carlton Street, Granville, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
The theme for our November meeting is Other Collections – several Club members will be presenting an array of handicrafts, memorabilia, and household items that they have collected alongside their dolls. Always an interesting session!
The door opens at 12 noon, to meet and chat, or buy from the General Trading and Charity tables. The main part of the meeting runs between 1:00-3:30. Please bring your own refreshments for afternoon tea.

Following official advice on social distanced gatherings, Club general meetings, and committee meetings recommenced in October. We have been advised by Cumberland Council that the Granville Town Hall venue is large enough to accommodate 60 people at our meetings with social distancing guidelines in place, and special cleaning and sanitising protocols have been put in place. Members are encouraged to wear masks if they feel more comfortable, and hand sanitiser and wipes will be available for use. Please do not attend meetings if you feel unwell.
For those who cannot attend, our Facebook group is a great place to catch up and share our dolls! And although our annual Doll Fair will not take place in 2020, we are already planning for next year’s Fair, July 24-25 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an emerging and rapidly changing situation, and we encourage all members to keep aware of current advice from official sources and health professionals.
