About

The Land O' Sky Doll Club of Western North Carolina was formed in 1983 with 14 charter members.  Over the years,
 

we have grown to a membership of nearly 50.  We are affiliated with a national doll collecting organization, the United

Federation of Doll Clubs (UFDC),
which provides us with an avenue for research as well as the opportunity to attend an

annual national convention.  Club members
are encouraged to attend the national convention which is held in a different

U.S. city each year,  and offers seminars, workshops, special doll exhibits, a large sales room,
lectures, and much more.


Local club members have placed displays in libraries and schools.  Our club donates a portion of our treasury to a charitable

organization in the area each year.  We have redressed dolls and donated them to hospitals, disaster victims, and

crisis centers.  Some of our members have presented doll related programs for children'groups, women's groups, and

others.  Each month, a different member is responsible for presenting a program to the club.  These programs

can be a "show and tell", a slide presentation, posters, or a study of specific doll or doll crafting technique.  Our members

collect a variety of doll types, such as bisque, wax, wooden, china, cloth, modern, and paperdolls.


In 1992, we hosted the first "Day With" event at the Deer Park Restaurant on the grounds of the famous Biltmore Estate.

Every year a different well-known doll authority presented a special program about a particular doll subject.  This

wonderful doll event 
continued for twenty years.  In 2012, the event's name was changed to "Dolly's Holiday" and still

provides doll collectors a great opportunity to hear some of the nation's experts on dolls.   
 


For many years,our club has had an annual doll show and sale in the fall which has been always been a success. It

is held at the WNC Agricultural Center in Fletcher, which is between Asheville and Hendersonville NC.  Many vendors from

across
the Southeast and Midwest United States attend.
