Each year, the Show brings together more than 100 U.S. and international artisans and dealers, including a number of I.G.M.A. Artisans and Fellows. They offer collectors unique, well-crafted 1-inch, 1/2-inch, and 1/4-inch scale miniatures from around the world.

From the Chairman

We expect to have the featured workshops on our Website and Blog by May l. The featured workshop teachers this year are Debbie Young of Young at Heart (quarter-scale), Craig Roberts of The Hairy Potter, and The Guys From Texas.

We have signed contracts with the Doubletree Hotel for 2013, 2014 and 2015. Each year, the show is the second weekend of October, so there will not be a conflict with NAME Day. The dates are October 12 & 13 of 2013, October 11 & 12 of 2014, and October 10 & 11 of 2015. Pass the dates on to anyone who might want to know.

The best news is that the hotel room rates will remain at the $89 level for 1 or 2 people through 2015. The rate for the ballroom will also remain the same. Other costs will rise, like electrical, publicity and printing, but having the ballroom cost the same means any rise in dealer table fees will be slight--if at all.

Just a reminder to keep checking our Blog for updates.  New postings appear every Saturday.
