Thank you to exhibitors and visitors who once again made Miniatura engaging, exciting and enthralling. We were, as always, impressed at the creativity and the attention to detail that the craftsmen achieve in their work.
It was great that all the visitors we spoke to had really enjoyed the show and some were already looking forward to the next one. There will be more on that soon but for the meantime here are some images from the last event to keep you going...
Chriserminiaturas from Spain, Jarrah Miniatures from Australia, Puppensteubchen from Germany and Emma Jane Miniatures from right here in the UK are all making their first appearances at Miniatura. We are sure you'll love their excellent miniatures.
There is also a special exhibition from amateur maker Doug Somerfield.
Now that summer is almost past and the equinox approaches, the countdown has started…. to Miniatura at the N.E.C. Birmingham on 20th & 21st September. There’s something exciting about early autumn which possibly evokes nostalgic childhood memories of the build-up towards all the fun events which have traditionally filled the darker days of winter. Warm fires to cosy up to and of course hobbies to pursue now that gardening is, for many, a summer only activity. Miniaturists from here in UK & overseas are beavering away to create more miniature magic for the visitors to the show, and from what we hear there are some amazing goodies in store.
More will follow in the next couple of weeks but we've just heard some tantalising news from Penny Thomson about the new centrepiece for her stand at the next show.
