The antique study group consists of Ottawa doll club members who have a special interest in antique dolls. We too meet once a month, in addition to the regular monthly meeting at the Nepean Museum. The antique study group meets one Sunday a month in a members home. Format is similar to regular meetings but more informal.
Here is an example of one of our meetings. Jumeau the French doll manufacturer was featured last summer. We paired this presentation with an elaborate tea party that we all dressed for too! After all, what would be a tea party be without hats, gloves and pearls?
English scones, clotted cream, finger sandwiches, petit fours, and cheesecake rounded out our meeting.
Although we don’t go to this extreme every month, at least once (okay, maybe twice) a year we pull out all the stops and party it up.
