Doll & Teddy Bear Artists and Collectors Convention
NIADA Patrons Susan and Terry Quinlan have created a very special event for Doll & Teddy bear artists and Collectors in Philadelphia. May 12th -14th at the Ramada Airport Hotel in Philadelphia, PA.
The convention has three purposes: (1) to recognize the contribution of Helen Bullard (NIADA founder) to the artist doll world and the contribution of Beverly Matteson Port to the artist teddy bear world, (2) to express appreciation to the artists and collectors for their contribution to the doll and teddy bear world, and (3) to stimulate interest in dolls and teddy bears among today’s younger generation. This event turns back the clock to those days when things were affordable and really fun to attend
NIADA artists Floyd Bell, Stephanie Blythe, Lesley Keeble, Diane Keeler, Deborah Pope, Donna May Robinson, Annie Wahl and Nancy Wiley will be showing their work and presenting demonstrations and seminars.

Juneau City Museum Receives a Tlingit Revered Elder Doll
Niece Micalyne and Uncle Ed Kunz accompany the presentation of the doll of their grandmother/mother Cecelia to the Juneau Alaska Museum. NIADA artist Mary Ellen Frank created this work replicating Cecelia’s regalia that she left her granddaughter, including extensive micro bead embroidery.
As a thanks to the family for their permission to work with clan crests, stories and images of their revered elder, Mary Ellen made a doll of local family spokesperson, Ed Kunz and surprised the family with it. He had, coincidentally, brought the 1905 regalia that the doll was wearing (from an early photo of Ed with his traditional dance group) and Ed slipped the tunic and mittens on.
The artist is now aware of the work that awaits her to complete his miniature tunic but this also means a continuing connection with this wonderful family. Continue reading
