Barbara Adams: Marilynn’s Sewing Cupboard

Barbara constructed this NAME Day 2017 Armoire Project for the NAME Day workday in Morgan Hill, CA. The event was hosted by MiniCals and Through the Looking Glass clubs on Sept. 30, 2017.


Barbara’s 1:12 scale armoire is full of sewing notions.

Make Your Plans for NAME Day 2017

The purpose of NAME Day is to unite and involve all NAME members by doing the same project on the same day at different locations throughout the US and internationally. Participation in an event may occur in clubs, locally, statewide, regionally, or online.

NAME Day will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017. Expanded events (or areas with conflicting dates) should occur as close to this date as is reasonably possible.

Project: All events will center on the same project – “BEDROOM – PART II: The Armoire”. Plans for the armoire will be provided in 1”, 1⁄2” and 1⁄4” scale as soon as they are available. Some cutters will produce kits for 1/144” scale. This armoire has been designed to coordinate with the bunk beds from 2016. The bunk bed kits will also be available this year. In 2018, the final piece for this room will be available.

More info is available on the NAME website.
