how to create 1:12 scale dolls





Greetings! And welcome to our minidoll world.

MDL provides a nuturing atmosphere for members to create 1:12 scale dolls (in a variety of mediums) since 1999. We also offer help at little or no cost with our RAK program (Random Acts of Kindness).

1. Join in the discussions (via email) on our lively IO group forum and share miniature doll techniques with over 1500 members. 2. Read our QUICK GUIDE to working the website. You can also view us on FACEBOOK, or take online classes.




Enjoy a fun holiday tradition by sending out (and receiving) a Christmas Holiday card in our MDL Christmas Swap. (send one card/receive one card).

To join in the fun - simply email by November 9th at midnight. Please include your snail mail address.

Susan will use the weekend to compile names - and send out your CHRISTMAS CARD SWAP partner to you via email. Then simply find a very special card - and snail mail it by end of month so our international customers can receive it on time.

**PLEASE NOTE** .... Postage is only $1.25 for foreign customers - but if you wish only US members - please let her know. SUSAN is NOT responsible for any content/missing cards. She is a wonderful Volunteer compiling names and we so appreciate her kindness.

11am and 7pm CST (Chicago Time zone)

We do hate rules, but find they are necessary for a smooth running of a social network. We cannot fine you, but we can ask that you abide by the simple Rules set out below. We want this list to be FUN and encouraging. By abiding by the rules, you ensure that MiniDollList IS a fun, safe, and sharing place.

Rule #1 - Basic computer courtesy
A. Do not FLAME or SHOUT (use all capital letters) or attack anyone on the list in public. If you have a problem with rules or something said, email Kathi at
B. Are you posting a note OFF TOPIC; place OT in subject line
C. Complete the subject line. Often empty subject lines suggest SPAM and we do not want that.
D. When at all possible - respond in private for chit chat/non-doll subjects. Better yet, join the Posse group in the chat room on Thursdays and Sundays.

Rule #2 – Signature lines
A. Signature lines may not exceed three (3) lines. Name, web, or saying, no pictures.
B. Signature lines should all be in the same font and all the same size.
C. Dana Burton owns this site and her signature is just three lines.

Rule #3 - Posting Sales and making requests
Please remember selling is a privilege and not a right.
A. Sales on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday
Post personal items on these days only along with auctions if you have them. Being on Digest does not change these rules. Please attempt to sell only as designated. You may ask people to visit your Blog, website or to visit an auction site. You may list dolls for sale, doll supplies, tutorials, miniatures, on-line class, classes, and Shows or Miniature Meetings in your area.
B. Auto mailing
We discourage automatic, automated, or robotic sales. Please take the time to feature and item and post it.
Post MiniDollU classes at any time, but not more than once a day. Please see to keep abreast of announcements.
C. Request for items
If you are searching for an item, please ask for a link or information to the list on any day. However, complete transactions privately and not on the forum.
D. Moderators may sell on their moderating day.
