Summer 2014 Letters to the Editor
I do love our Doll News and this is another amazing example of our quality publication…

My feet are so cold….BECAUSE the latest edition of DOLL NEWS knocked my socks off! Big congratulations…

I just briefly paged through the new issue of Doll News and I can’t wait to have time to sit down and read everything. Love the cover! And every article looks so interesting and well put together. The Gael Shults paper doll story is one of the highlights for me this quarter – charm to spare, plus so many fun accessories to cut out and play with! And I think Nicki Burley wins the award for BEST opening line of a doll article ever. Jane Austen would be proud!
The only problem I see with this issue is that you keep raising the bar for yourself to top next time!
Love the cover! How perfect for San Antonio!

You are an excellent editor, and I love the direction that Doll News is taking.
Wow — 21 pages of Shirley Temple. What a Beautiful Book this is.
I have to pass along a message from a member. I received a voice message from Marsha King this afternoon and she asked me to tell you how BEAUTFUL the Summer issue is! She was very animated in her message. Kudos to you.

Another gorgeous issue! I love the paper dolls and the patterns and the story on Christine Shively… It’s a keeper for sure!
Thank you for another wonderful issue of Doll News. The article about Patsy was most interesting, and perfectly timed since our doll club is doing a study on Patsy and her history. You and your staff are creating outstanding issues of Doll News. All of you deserve a lot of credit and appreciation for your work.

Just got my Doll News…great issue! Beautiful!
I just wanted to thank you so much for including my Shirley Temple paper doll in the wonderful Summer 2014 issue of DOLL NEWS. The article by Tonya Bervaldi-Camarrata was absolutely fabulous. I think this issue is a lovely tribute to Shirley Temple, who is so much more than a child star — she’s truly a historical figure! This issue is hands-down my all-time favorite issue of DOLL NEWS, and I am so very honored to have contributed to it.

I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading the Doll News Summer 2014. The variety of dolls that are written about is wonderful–there is something for every doll collector to enjoy! Thank you for the article about Christine Shively. The pictures that went with this article really showed how talented she is. The Shirley Temple article with so many photos is outstanding. I really enjoy the patterns you have in each issue and look forward to using a lot of them. Congratulations to you and your talented staff on such a wonderful magazine and this issue in particular.

I love the article on DENNISON!!!!!! You’re doing a WONDERFUL job…everyone is so pleased…
I am…an avid doll collector with many dolls including several Shirley Temples. I am also a big fan of classic movies including the Shirley Temple movies. I thoroughly enjoyed the article on the Shirley Temple dolls in the recent issue of Doll News. It is an excellent article although I have to disagree with the author’s assessment of Shirley’s 1940’s movies. Shirley was, in fact, in several first rate movies such as “Kathleen,” “Since You Went Away,” “I’ll be Seeing You” (both great WWII home front movies), and “The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer”, one of the great screwball comedies of all time. Please keep up the good work in Doll News.
The Doll News was worth the wait. It is very well put together. I was especially thrilled about the “Patsy Now and Then” article.
