Join Mini Cyber Club for an Online NAME Day 2020

The 2020 NAME Day project is the sink and cabinet for the craft room.

October 3rd (1″ and 1/2″ scale)
October 24th (1/4″ scale)

With the unfortunate damper on all things in-person these days, NAME Day events are not able to happen in many or most areas. So Mini Cyber Club (an official NAME club) is planning an all-day event on ZOOM so that miniaturists can at least meet face-to-face online; which seems to be the new way of gathering to share the love of all things miniature.

All NAME members are invited to join, whether you are a member of Mini Cyber Club or not. If you register, you will receive the login information and any other information available to registrants. See the schedule below.

There is no cost. There will be tempting food thoughts, as well as recipes and talk, but you are on your own to actually provide those food items that will help you sustain yourself through the day. Chocolate is highly recommended for firm, attention-enhancing, steady hands for all miniature creativity.

On Saturday, October 3rd, Official NAME Day this year, we will start off with a session of: demos, tips and tricks and question answering for the 1:12 and 1:24 (1″& ½”) scale NAME Day project for this year. The instructions and parts for those two scales are more or less the same.
10:00 AM to 12:00 noon (PDT), 1:00 to 3:00 PM (EDT)
12:00 to 3:00 PM (PDT), 3:00 to 5:00 (EDT), reverse painting technique demo to make the top to your counter. Luci will demo how you can light your area.
3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PDT), 5:00 to 7:00 (EDT), will be a time for surprises, prizes, games and chat. After that period, those who choose to continue to work and chat can go until sunrise if needed but will not have instruction after hours. You can help each other however, just like in clubs.

For you Quarter Scalers, instruction and demos will be Saturday, October 24th, 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon (PDT), 1:00 to 3:00 PM (EDT). Many of you Quarter Scalers are participating in the Quarter Connection NAME Day; therefore you may start your kit there, and Mini Cyber Club will be available to help with questions and finishing the week after. Those who will be doing the quarter scale on their own, MCC will be there to help from start to finish if needed, or at least for two hours. Quarter Scalers will want to join us on October 3rd however, for the Reverse Painting Technique, the Lighting and the Games and Chat portions.

Please be sure you have ordered your kits. There are some cutters who can still take orders, so you will have to ask them if they can accommodate you. See the Cutter List on the NAME website and fill out the Registration Form.
