Doll artist Dana Burton will be offering a one-day class on Monday, October 15, to create "Margo, a Romantic Steampunk Figure." Her business is "helping anyone - anywhere - with any budget" learn how to create miniature 1:12 scale porcelain dolls. When Dana first started dollmaking, only patterns existed. Since she doesn't sew, Dana revolutionized the concept of seeing shapes and creating clothing out of them. This unique approach allows her to create lifelike humans (frozen in time), rather than static dolls. Be sure to stop by her table. New classes and kits are announced thru her newsletter.

Dealer Carol Sherry, Carol Sherry Miniatures
Carol Sherry shares that designers like MacKenzie-Childs inspired her to try unusual color combinations and patterns. She explains, "Early-on I painted for myself and others and had run out of room for full-size furniture when I happened upon a dollhouse. A whole new world opened up for me! Now I focus exclusively on whimsical miniatures, and have more ideas than time!" She prefers to work in 1:12 scale. Web: www.carolsherryminiatures.com
