2011 International Paper Doll Convention to be held in Philadelphia

Although this year’s Paper Doll Convention has not as yet happened in Kansas City, next year’s event is already in the early planning stage. Chairing the Convention will be David Wolfe, paper doll artist, fashion authority and popular emcee at recent paper doll conventions. The 2011 event, “Let Freedom Ring!” will take place in Philadelphia from Wednesday, August 17 to Sunday, August 21, 2011. The venue will once again be at an Embassy Suites hotel, this time located at the Philadelphia Airport and easily accessible by plane, train or car.

David has shared some of the exciting plans that include a welcome Registration/Reception Party to kick off the Convention, a convivial Coloring-and-Cutting “Bee” get together, the Sales Room, a Raffle, a Silent Auction of artwork and a newly concepted Competition plus several Workshops and special Presentations. David, who has designed a “Liberty Belle” logo for the Convention, says that he intends conventioneers will receive a “bumper crop of paper dolls and a special souvenir tote bag.”

For the first time ever, registration and payment will be available online. Details coming soon!
