Why Join UFDC?
There are many good reasons to join our doll club, not least of which is to experience the opportunity to get together with others who understand and share your love of dolls.
By joining UFDC you become a part of a vast network of members involved in the doll world.
Members who get together to talk dolls, to trade doll knowledge, to attend conferences, conventions, doll exhibits, doll sales, and other special doll collecting events.
UFDC provides all of its members with the opportunity for a deeper level of doll study through our publication DOLL NEWS, through the research facilities at our Headquarters in Kansas City, Mo, through our Audio-Visual Program lending library, through in-depth Seminars and Workshops, and through the ever-expanding Educational components of this web site.
Perhaps most importantly, our members experience the bonds of deep friendship that are made possible by being a part of the active community of collectors that is the core of UFDC.
