Photos from the MiniCals Porch Workshops

Early this year, the MiniCals club hosted 3 workshops entitled, “The Back Porch.” Participants met at M&L Precision in Morgan Hill, CA, to create 1″ scale scenes.

Two of the finished porch projects are shown below.

Fun and Centerpieces at the Sacramento Houseparty

Mealtimes at the Sacramento Houseparty were a chance to view the different centerpieces, win prizes, and spend time with fellow miniaturists.

On Saturday evening, some of the houseparty guests chose to dress for dinner in the spirit of the theme, “ABC’s of Miniatures.”

The centerpieces at the NAME Sacramento Houseparty were created by Vegie MacLean and Liz Driver. Each table contained centerpieces in both 1″ and 1/4″ scales.

Thank you to Trish Billard, Suzanne Harrington-Cole, and Nancy Wantiez for the photos.
