Convention 2013 Artist Spotlight
Convention may be months away but our event artists and manufacturers are already hard at work. Each month UFDC is pleased to introduce you to the artists and companies whose work will be showcased at the meal events planned for Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States of America.
In the White House’s long history there have been nineteen recorded weddings that have taken place either in the house itself or on its grounds. There was one Edwardian wedding. This occurred on February 17th, 1906 when Alice Lee Roosevelt married Nicholas Longworth. In celebration of these happy occasions the Vogue 2013 convention meal event’s theme will be “A Wedding at the White House”. What could be more irresistible than a beautiful Vogue Jill bride? A beautiful bride accompanied by an adorable Ginny bridesmaid.

A Personal Message from Vogue
Vogue was honored to have their Just ME doll chosen as the 2012 UFDC National Convention Souvenir Doll. This very special Just ME doll was re-sculpted by Alice Leverett to better reflect the look and flavor of the antique Just ME dolls for the Jambalaya Jubilee in New Orleans this past July. It was a great pleasure to be able to work for and on behalf of the Membership of UFDC.
