IGMA members and other miniature lovers gathered at the Glenpointe Marriott in Teaneck, New Jersey August 6 and 7, for the annual Guild Show and Sale, and as that old cliche goes–a good time was had by all!
A wonderful schedule of classes and special events were available in the days leading up to the show, and Friday night’s Gathering of the Guild–otherwise known as Desserts and Demonstrations, launched the show weekend itself. If you still haven’t had the chance to experience a Guild Show weekend, Desserts and Demonstrations is a delicious bounty for body and soul, the desserts and other snacks spread over several tables on one side of the Grand Concourse, and across from that, tables are set out for demonstrations and otherwise informative discussions. You can sit and enjoy conversation and desserts with friends old and new, while at the same time pick up a new tip or two on using materials or techniques you may already be familiar with, or you may even learn something entirely new.
On Saturday morning the Aladdin’s cave of miniature bounty was revealed when the salesroom doors opened and shoppers poured through looking for favorite artists and new treasures. Live and silent auctions increased the shopping opportunities with many one-of-a-kind pieces, all donated to support the Guild’s many educational programs.
