Registration for the Sacramento Houseparty opens August 1, 2016.
Houseparty Date: March 24-26, 2017 with Pre-Houseparty workshops and an Event on Thursday, March 23. The houseparty is to be held in Sacramento, California.
Houseparty Theme: ABCs of Miniatures: Tools and Techniques.
We are looking forward to having you as our Guest at our Houseparty. This is NAME’s first attempt at providing a multi-scale houseparty in which participants register for a scale of their choice. There is a choice of 2 scales: 1 inch and quarter inch. If it works smoothly, perhaps more scales will be offered in the future.
Souvenirs, table seating, door prizes and mini swaps will be only available in 1 inch and ¼ inch. All other activities – workshops, dealers, roundtables, silent auction – will be available and welcome to all scales.
How to Register
Download the registration form. Please note that registration opens Aug. 1, 2016. You may mail your registration form between July 1st – August 1st, 2016 for it to be considered first day postmarked (no earlier). When filling out the form, you will check whether you want 1” or ¼”. Then you will receive your souvenirs in that scale and you will sit at a table that will do exchanges in that scale. Remember that you will be asked to designate your preferred scale—one-inch or one-quarter inch. This will help organizers plan for your souvenirs.
You will be sitting at tables at the meal functions in the scale of your choice. So, plan with your friends who you might want to sit with because you and your friends must register for the same scale in order to sit together.
Attendees are asked to designate which scale is preferred for their souvenirs and gift exchange: 1″ or ¼”. One of the souvenirs is a special piece designed by Ruth & Dan Stewart, with special artwork to go with it, designed by Robin Betterley. Attendees will receive the souvenir in the scale that they signed up for. Of course, there will be other souvenirs (more info to share about those later).
Roundtable and Mega Roundtable workshops are being planned. More info to come.
Thursday night event
A special event is scheduled for Thursday evening, March 23. Info to come.
Hope to see you in Sacramento!
