The Sturbridge Miniatures Festival 2019
It’s hard to believe another Sturbridge gathering has come and gone. We had such a wonderful time with our Hitty friends who arrived from all over the USA and Canada. The Robertson Hittys gifted us with our annual “Tablecloth Pinnys” which are made from tablecloths gifted to us from the restaurant where we go to lunch every year. We take a group photo every year after lunch:
Great Aunt Doll was *supposed* to be directing the photo-taking, but she got a bit distracted:
Dinner was at the Publick House – wonderful as always. Hitty Jean likes to imagine a time when meals were cooked in the fireplace:
Great Aunt Doll and Mamie had lots of catching up to do:
Then came the highlight of the weekend…the Sturbridge Miniatures Festival! Hitty Jean And Ima were captivated by the house on display at Art to Play With’s table. Ima felt so fancy up on the balcony in her new pinny, beautifully hand sewn by the talented Quimper Hittys.
There is always so much to see at this wonderful Miniatures show. A particular favorite was Marie W Evans’ table. Her creations are so meticulously and lovingly made. (Marie is very sweet, too!)
Ima was only persuaded to leave when she found out that Marie has an Etsy Shop she can browse at her leisure.
And now, we are back on the road again. This time in Maine, at the IGMA Guild School in Castine, where Hitty Jean is learning more about miniature bookbinding. The first Castine sunset did not disappoint!
‘Til Next Time…
