Exhibits and Displays
 
... before the LIGHTS,
...
 before the CAMERA,
... before the ACTION,
... our celebrities need a place to call their home away from home. Whether it be a backlot trailer or a studio dressing room.
We are creating such a place!
Our Guild project this year is: HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD 
We will have both wooden studio dressing rooms and wooden trailers on display. Come see what our stars have chosen for their personal space.
Here is an example of each built by our Project Chairman, Bill Crittenden:

 

***

 Each October our Guild participates in NAME Day.  This year, led by our Project chairman Bill Crittenden, we made 1" scale theaters with a scene he created showing Alice meeting Humpty Dumpty.  We'll have our theaters on display!

 

 

***

 At past shows you've see our Victorian Town, our Boulevard with various shopping carts, and our Western Town.  We have a brand new surprise for you this year: a 1/2" scale village of Fairies and Forest Folk. 

***

Miniatures in all scales will be on display in both Guild Exhibits and Judged Exhibits areas.  Come wander amongst them and let the miniatures dazzle your eyes and inspire your creativity.
 
... and many more surprises!
 
 

Roundtables:
 
Make-it-take-it roundtables will be held during the show on Sunday.  No pre-registration is needed. Information about the workshops will be posted as it becomes available.   

Come create a new treasure or two!      

 

Silent Auction:
 

   
     
We will hold a Silent Auction again this year. Above, Carol Kira (standing) and Lynn Dombrowsky show a sampling of the many exciting items that were offered at our 2015 show.  Photos of items for this year's Auction will be added to the "Silent Auction" page as they are donated.  

 
Children's Area: 
 

There will be a special children's sales table for children only.  All items there are very low priced as our way of encouraging young miniaturists.

Each year we offer a Free workshop for children ages 6-12
 
Dollhouse Raffle: 
 

For our 2017 charity project, the Gingerbread Cottage is presented by the Lakeland Miniature Guild Members.  All profits will be donated to the Troxel House for Women and Children at Lighthouse Ministries. 

Many club members contributed to this project  by adding their individual touches.  Special thanks to Susan Wener for completing the outside and the decorative frosting.

 
Tickets, priced at $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00, will be available from club members and at the June show and preview. 
 
Drawing will be at 3:30pm on Sunday, June 25.  You need not be present to win.
