The Old Crafts in Miniature: November AIM Magazine

The November edition of the free AIM magazine is now online! This month's theme is 'The Old Crafts' (including some of the very oldest - don't miss Viola Williams's entertaining and informative article about Victorian bordellos!) I was happy to see an article by online-friend Tom Saunders, who writes of his transition from full-scale to miniature wood-turning and gives us a rare look at some of his beautiful full-size pieces. There's a fun article about Gypsy caravans by Ana Anselmo and Paulo Gomes, featuring their colorful handmade wagons. And Kevin Jackson's new line of Tudor houses look really cool - one more thing for the Wish List!

Free projects this month: Chenille Rag Rug Weaving, a Cross-Stitch Lavendar Cushion, Coiled Baskets, miniature Tassels, and 1:144-scale Micro Lamps.

The AIM magazine is a FREE monthly dollhouse & miniatures magazine brought to you by the members of Artisans in Miniature. Packed with articles, galleries, tutorials, and miniature news! Regular features include show reports, member profiles, featured blogs, artist interviews, and smaller scales. Read it online or download it at



About Me

My Photo
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
