Here is the official notification from Sandra:
You are cordially invited to join us for THE gala
holiday happening of the year, when friends old and
new gather for Sandra Stillwell Presents: "Every Day's A Holiday", in
Kansas City, Missouri, August 22-25th, 2013.
The childhood anticipation of
waiting for Santa -- snug in your cozy new Christmas PJ's? Those
magical Christmas mornings when you unwrapped that beautifully
dressed dolly or other treasures you'd been dreaming of?
The excitement of shopping for that perfectly
accessorized frock to wear on Easter morning? Brightly colored flowers
and the delightful pastel colors of Easter eggs? The warm feeling of a
fuzzy soft Easter bunny or chick?
Do you recall...
The thrill of receiving that special heartfelt
valentine from a secret friend? The tug at your heart feeling
of romantic chocolate and flowers sent from someone who thinks
How about the wide eyed fun of spooky ghosts, witches,
black cats and bats? Or the fun of trick or treating and eating your loot
afterwards? Dressing up in Halloween costumes or
kitsch, and seasonable colors of orange, purple and black?
Do you remember...
Festive fourth of July parties and picnics with family
and friends, followed by larger than life fireworks displays at
nightfall? The sounds of big band music with patriotic
colors and stars and stripes as far as the eye can see?
Or perhaps a different type of holiday has special
meaning for you -- a fantasy flight to a far away destination? An
anniversary? New Year's Eve?
"Sandra Stillwell Presents: Every Day's A Holiday" will
sweep you back to a time of such happy remembrances when the magic of
holidays could be witnessed everywhere from Main Street to Hollywood's
Limited to only 50 attendees, this intimate holiday soiree will be a
celebration of friends, dolls, beloved holiday traditions, classic
movies and beautiful fashions -- all rolled into a fun filled weekend that
will surely bring out the child in us all!
Our "Every Day's A Holiday" souvenir
package will be a collection of elegant holiday fashions mixed
with a twist of fun! Created to fit your favorite 16" fashion
doll these designs will be produced especially for this not to be
missed Sandra Stillwell Presents event!
Also Included in your registration fee will be a docent guided tour of the
Toy and Miniature Museum of Kansas City to view fabulous examples
of dolls, dollhouses, miniature room sets, teddy bears, and toys of
yesteryear. Housed in a 38 room historic mansion, this delightful museum is
truly a child's Christmas dream come true!
Of course, no holiday would be complete without Kansas City's own Hallmark
Cards, so we're also planning a tour at the Hallmark Visitor's Center, where
we'll learn the rich history of this century old company.
And, if all the exciting things
mentioned above weren't enough... there's still more packed into your
"Every Day's A Holiday" registration -- a fun movie break, desert
reception and 3 meals, including a gala Saturday night banquet! We will
also have illustrious guest speakers, interesting programs and displays,
raffles, room shopping, and maybe even a few holiday surprises!!
Registration and other fees...
As an added bonus for each convention
guest who books within the Sandra Stillwell Presents group block, the hotel
has once again agreed to include a complimentary breakfast for every
night's stay. These breakfasts on our event days -- including our
Sunday farewell breakfast -- will be group meal functions in our
ballroom, with table gifts and centerpieces. There will be
an additional $35 fee per breakfast for registrants not staying at the
hotel to attend these meals and receive any related souvenirs.
If booked within our hotel room
block and paid in full by cash, check/money order by July 5, the
registration fee is $415. After July 5, the fee is $440. Payments can be
made, but are non refundable.
A $15 charge will
be added to payments other than cash or check/ money order.
A $50 cancellation fee applies to all
cancellations prior to August 9th. After that date, no cancellations are
Companion registrations will be
available if purchased with a full registration. Please email for

those on the list before being made available to the general
What could be a more perfect place to set the scene for our holiday
celebrations than "Holiday Inn"? Yes -- that's right -- we'll be
spending our "Sandra Stillwell Presents" holidays at the
Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza!!
Tucked inside the legendary neighborhood known for it's beautiful
fountains, Spanish architecture, upscale shopping and great restaurants and
nightlife, the Plaza Holiday Inn is only a few steps away from Kansas City's
renowned Country Club Plaza -- which made history as the first ever outdoor
We've secured the very special group rate of only $119 per night, which
includes breakfast in the hotel restaurant on days that we do not have a
convention breakfast function.
In order for you to experience everything Kansas City has to offer, this
special rate has been extended 5 days before and 5 days after convention, based
on availability. If you need to book outside these dates, please contact me
The Plaza Holiday Inn offers complimentary
Wi-fi, garage parking (on availability) and neighborhood shuttle that
will take guests shopping to both Country Club Plaza and Hallmark's Crown
Center. For those who would like to visit restaurants, museums, and
convenience stores within a 3 mile radius of the hotel. (Shuttle runs on a
first request basis)
Hotel reservations may be made by calling 1-866-280-6326 and asking for
the "Sandra Stillwell Presents" group rate. Please note that the
cutoff date for guest bookings is 8/8/13, or until the block is sold out --
which ever comes first
that it is VERY important to book within our group block.
Our room block is extremely limited, so I highly recommend
that hotel reservations be made as soon as you can. I will be
monitoring the group bookings closely to make timely revisions
If you plan to join us
for Every Day's A Holiday and are not yet ready to make hotel reservations, it
would help greatly to know what days you are planning to book.
I strongly encourage
all attendees to stay at the Convention hotel for a complete "convention
experience". Besides all the fun and camaraderie those who don't stay at
the hotel will miss out on, our room and food rates are based on meeting a
guaranteed minimum, and it is crucial I have your cooperation to meet that
Also, with our many
planned activities, you'll find being on site much more convenient!
Optional Offsite Tours:
Known as the "City of Fountains", Kansas City boasts more fountains than
any other city outside of Rome. Our Thursday tour will feature a driving tour of
some of these lovely fountains, as well as other Kansas City landmarks.
Second only to New York City in garment manufacturing during the
1960's, Kansas City earned the nickname, "Paris of the Plains". Our Thursday
offsite tour will also include a visit to the Kansas City Garment District
Museum, where curator and designer Ann Brownfield will treat us to a behind
the scenes tour of their "Kansas City produced" archives. We will
learn about Kansas City's garment manufacturing legacy and see
fashions that were manufactured there -- including TWA airline hostess uniforms.
Owned at one time by Howard Hughes and frequented by
celebrities, TWA -- Kansas City's hometown airline -- was
well known as the "Airline To The Stars". I'm excited to say that still
another part of our Thursday offsite tour will take us to the TWA Museum, which
was founded and is operated by former TWA employees. Housed in the original 1931
building that was built to house the TWA corporate headquarters and
maintenance facility, the TWA Museum collection features both pilot and
stewardess uniforms, plus many other artifacts which tell the history
of the airline pioneer. Director Pam Blaschum --a longtime TWA
stewardess -- will be our hostess as we travel back through the glory years
of airline travel and learn all about the legacy of this
important aviation giant.
The cost of the Thursday tour -- only $119 (dependant on our filling up the
chartered bus) -- will include an exclusive souvenir fashion that
relates back to Kansas City's heritage. More details forthcoming
The Sunday tour is not finalized yet, but if there is
enough interest, we will plan do one! Our Sunday tours have traditionally
been for a smaller group -- a great chance to relax and enjoy each other's
company after convention, while having a fun time seeing sites we may
not have been able to see otherwise. Kansas City, known as both the jazz
capital and the BBQ capital of the world, offers many other interesting and
fun activities that I'm currently looking into -- and, as always, I
welcome suggestions of what YOU would like to see and do!
Please watch for news about this Sunday tour and
any additions/changes to our other tours in the next few
known fact about conventions is that registration fees never fully
cover expenses! Last year's raffle was a big success -- a huge
help to convention and great fun for participants, too! So, once again, we'll be
having a raffle to help offset extra costs. Dolls, fashions, repaints,
accessories, gift certificates... donations of all types and sizes are welcome
and greatly appreciated!! If you would like to contribute to the raffle,
please email me at email@example.com.

Last year's "Radio Days" convention sold out in record time and we expect this
year to follow suit, so please don't wait too long to
Holidays have always been a magical time for me -- a time for little
indulgences and big dreams. I truly believe that "Every Day's A Holiday"
and any day spent with friends and dollies is cause for celebration.
I've been dreaming of doing this "holiday" convention
for a long time, and now that the time is drawing near...like a kid waiting
for Christmas...I'm getting more and more excited about spending my
"holidays" with you!
So mark your calendars, pack your bags, and start
making plans to experience the holidays in "Sandra Stillwell"
I hope to see you all in August!
