Denver in 2001!

ABS Doll 'Suzanne'Of course, you'll want to come to Denver on July 4-8, 2001. And don't forget to be there the day before for the pre-convention tour and plan to stay an extra day for the post-convention tour. Remember to plan for taking an extra box home - the Denver folks are gathering sale plants from far and wide. But, you may also be the lucky ABS member who takes home the ABS Doll 'Suzanne' created just for us by Helene Jaros! See and read about this beauty below.

The meeting will be at the Embassy Suites and room rates will be $120 per night; but remember we get breakfast and an evening food and beverage reception included in that cost. You will recall that these have been great hotels for interaction and discussions of our favorite plants! Don't miss it; be there.

Doll maker and ABS Member Helen Jaros has made a 24 "porcelain doll, "Suzanne", for the ABS Convention to be held in Denver Suzanne dress is designed by renowned dress designer Marva Newberry and is made from the beautiful silk parrios brought by ABS Member Tan Jiew Hoe from Singapore to the West Palm Beach Convention. The fabric designed with begonias was created especially for ABS. Suzanne is also wearing begonia earrings! Helene Jaros has been creating dolls at Jackie Russellís doll studio in Sanford, Florida since 1985. Be sure to be there for the possibility of taking home this beauty!.
