April 4, 2020

Today would mark what would have been day 1 of our 40th annual show, wouldn't it be of the current COVID-19 situation.  The 40th annual show will be delayed quite a bit but in those times of social distancing, miniature is a perfect escapade!  Many visitors are telling us all the time that our exhibition room is sparking up their imagination and fueling them ideas for the year to come.  One of them, Marilyn Driscol from New Brunswich, suggested that we may post pictures of some of our MEMbers exhibits in some sort of a "virtual exhibit" for everyone's pleasure.  Some members are raising up to the challenge and we will post their work on that page throughout the weekend as well as in the next few days...  Come back often to visit the blog as content will be uploaded as received.

Teeanager Room in a Lantern by Michèle Castonguay

The teenager's room has been completed in a workshop at the Ontario Miniatures Gathering.  The teacher, Cheryl Hubbard, was suppose to attend our show for the first time this year.  Cheryl is working, among other things, wonderful quarter scale wicker furniture.  Her work can be found on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.fr/manitobaminis/miniatures-by-cheryl-hubbard/.

The furniture in this display as well as all the items are made from scratch using everyday material.  The lantern can be found at Ikea.

   

 Thank you Michèle for this unique piece!

Colour is life! by Suzanne Wiseman

Basement by Erica Laptiste

The 2019-20 monthly meetings were picked around the theme of the basement.  Workshops included the building structure, windows and blinds, steps, hot water tank, Halloween and Christmas decorations, stocking jars, etc.

A basement can be a a stoking place or a living place.  Erica went with a very eclectic piece with a wonderful place for minis creation!

 
   
   Thank you Erica for this very nice and realistic basement!
