Ed Heeg is a relative newcomer to dollhouse miniatures having only recently ventured into this tiny world. Ed had spent many years previous, honing his woodworking skills on scale models and life-sized work before taking a small detour, in 2009, into the world of 1/12 scale miniatures. He found he had a talent for working in this scale and thus launched a new career for himself as Ed Heeg, Miniature Cabinetmaker.

Please join us in welcoming Ed as a dealer to the Guild Show for the first time this year.
