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

Looking back on the 2012 show, the dealers brought wonderful miniatures and the new dealers were so appreciated by all. The 80 exhibits were outstanding, our best presentation of exhibits in 4 years. Keep them coming. To be able to see a number of Tom Roberts' room settings in a single display was a tremendous treat for all.

The free children's workshops and the pre-registered children's workshops were very busy both days. The Friday workshops were not just glue up kits this year, but really taught students how to do things. There were some 100 people who attended the free Sunday morning "Tools & Techniques" program. You could make a cloth book, learn about using LED lighting, or see how to cut a circle on a table saw.

The featured workshops are still going on, but the students seem really happy with them.

Looking ahead, the 2013 show will be October 12th and 13th, again at the Doubletree. Come join us, it is total mini immersion.
