Director of Region 16 — Carol Cameron, Carmel Doll and Study Group

I first discovered UFDC in 1997 when we moved to the USA from the UK.  I joined the DOLL Collectors of Houston and came to my first convention in 1998 in New Orleans.  Moving back to the UK in 2001 and then living in The Netherlands from 2007 to 2015, I continued my UFDC membership as a Member-at-Large and came to every convention bar one.  I am now also a member of the Carmel Doll and Toy Study Group.

As Region 16 Director, my focus is very much on increasing membership in the region.  I believe there are great opportunities outside the USA to recruit both individual doll collectors and doll clubs.  It will require everyone in Region 16 to reach out in their own geography and make personal contact, as well as maximizing the use of UFDC’s technology, branding and communication material.  My job will be to communicate, motivate and recognize success.

I have been collecting dolls since 1983 and dolls houses since 2005.  Initially focusing on wax dolls, when I came to the US I discovered American cloth dolls.  Back in Europe, I began to collect Art dolls – Kathe Kruse, Munich Art and Bucherers.  I then moved onto wooden dolls – English and Continental.  Along the way, I have picked up some China’s and also some leather dolls.  My latest thing is French bisque.  My doll house collection is a mix of 18th and 19th century English and Continental houses.  And I have recently started to write articles and prepare/deliver presentations.  One of the many wonderful things about our hobby is that even after 30+ years, I am still finding new avenues to explore.
