I have always been fascinated by miniatures. When I was seven, my parents gave me a dollhouse that they built from a kit. In high school, my parents helped me start to remodel that house, which now sits near me as I write this article. San Jose, California, has an annual dollhouse show. At the show last year I was introduced to the International Guild of Miniature Artisans and the Guild School held every year in Castine, Maine. I always wondered how I could learn to finish my house and its furnishing, so I selected some classes (“Dogrose Courtship” designed and taught by Beth Freeman-Kane and a slipper chair design class taught by Annelle Furguson) and went.
