Progressive Class:
Make a wonderful Cinderella Room Box  one side has her as the dreamer and the other side has her going to the ball.  You will make the room box in class  or take as a kit to build later.  Then when you shop at the show you can find items for your room box.  Look for the tags that say Progressive Class.  Dealers will have items they made especially for your roombox.  This is a year long project.  There will be classes at 4 major shows with exclusive items for your scene including:  Cinderella in the blue ball gown,  Cinderella at her stepmoms, chest of drawers for each side, special accessories, Coach clock for mantel and much more.   These items will be available at the St Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City and Wisconsin shows.    Dealers will have their items available at other shows including Dallas, Wee Cee, Indianapolis, and more.  The quest is on to complete your scene with all the special items.  A list of items and dealers will be coming shortly with item, dealers and shows they will be attending.   Sign up now  this class is limited.  Class includes room box,  trims, molding,  electric wire set up, choice of wallpaper, and flooring.

Making Mini Books  (1 inch Scale)

Making your own books allows you to create books that will fit in perfectly with your miniature scenes. In this 2-1/2 hour miniature book workshop in one-inch scale I will introduce you to two different book-making constructions–an open (non-closing) book and a very simple leather-look journal (non-opening). In addition to completing the two books, we will also make two aged document bundles that can be tucked in a desk, a drawer, or even hidden away in an attic. And lastly we will assemble a laser-cut bookstand to hold your open book. 1″ scale

Please bring sharp scissors for cutting paper and tweezers–all other tools and materials will be provided by the instructor.
