MarieDollFriends is a "private" online doll club for Marie Osmond Doll Collectors. MarieDollFriends was established in 1997 with the goal to share our interests with fellow Marie Osmond Doll Collectors around the world. Our club has over 2500 members and continues to grow each day. Membership is free and available to any interested collector. Membership IS required via our Yahoo Groups in order to gain access to our "member only" forums and other services.
The club is designed to inform our collectors of "What's New" in the Marie Osmond Doll Line. Information is sent to the members through a listserv (email service) and also posted on our website via our doll forums. Members are kept up to date on the latest news, the latest club activities and much more.
Our doll forums have become extremely popular with our members. We sponsor various contests held on our forum where members win various prizes. We are very fortunate to have MANY doll artists who have sculpted for Marie's line as members of our doll group and who often participate with many of our chats, posts and raffles.
We held our first Reunion on August 4th, 2001 in West Chester PA at the Holiday Inn. We were fortunate to have Marie Osmond, Sonja Bryer, Karen Seamons and Lisa Hatch attend our reunion and sign dolls for all members in attendance. (Pictures were taken and can be found on our website.) We held our second reunion in June 2005 in Michigan at Robbin and Bob Spegel's home. We were fortunate to have the following doll artists attend: Beverly Stoehr, Karen Scott, Rachel Scott, Sonja Bryer and Tawny Nix. Our 10th Year reunion was held July 19-21, 2007 and we had a grand time. We raised over $3000.00 for charity (CMN) and presented Marie with the donation at the Expo Event in August 2007. We had the following doll artist who attended our 10th Year Anniversary Reunion: Karen and Rachel Scott, Sonja Bryer, Ping Lau, Beverly Stoehr and Jo Ann Pohlman. The reunion was held in Michigan this year and Charisma made a "Special MDF 10th Anniverary" doll to commemorate our anniversary.
If you would like to join us for any future events held, please make sure you join our doll group. We would love to have you join our wonderful group of "dollfriends".
