We're hosting informal and interactive Zoom Meet-Ups for our community to get together in virtual space - take a break from your current project and join us!  (We'll even send our members a reminder 30-min before the session starts!)

Our next session is...

  • 4 PM ET Wednesday, January 19 | Meet-up: Tour the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures in Kansas City on YouTube and join us for a live discussion to follow, on Zoom.

Assembled by collector and museum co-founder Barbara Marshall, the collection includes architectural works, room settings, and intricately made individual pieces.
