I want to thank Pat Lillich, Jean Bernard, Kat Bunker, JG Gawlik, and Tere Ivanca for their generous contributions towards the new site.  Also, the artists who let me use photos of their work in the banner (credited on the banner credit page)

new site

Here is the long promised new site.  You will notice that this one has far fewer features than the previous one.  If we find ourselves really missing something, then we can always add it in later.  This site has the advantages of simplicity, particularly no log-ins.  I would encourage everyone interested in the site to join the email discussion list.  At present, I'm using a flickr badge instead of a photo gallery of our own.  Please consider tagging your flickr pictures with TDIC (The dollmakers' internet community) to show each other our pictures.
