Marianne Cook

Have you ever been curious about the artisans who work behind the scenes for AIM? If so, this  month, in The Dolls House Magazine Issue 200 one of our lovely ladies from The Ed Team at Artisans In Miniature is highlighted in their 'Maker's Profile'. 

Marianne also has a project in the same edition to make this wonderful Crocus in 1:12th Scale

New Additions to Janet Granger's 'Summer Roses' Kit Range

Pretty floral stitching for the mini dining table!

There's a couple of new kits on Janet Granger's website this week - a table runner, and matching placemats, which are both to be stitched on 32 count silk gauze. They are in the popular 'Summer Roses' series - deep red and soft gold roses, on a pale cream background - suitable for many eras and styles of dollhouse. Each kit contains stranded cotton, a generous piece of silk gauze, clear instructions and stitch diagrams, a suitable needle and a colour block chart to count the design from. When finished, the runner measures 3 1/2 long x 7/8 inch wide. The placemats each measure 1 3/8 wide by 1 inch high, with enough materials to make four per pack.

Each kit is available from the What's New page of Janet's website 

The table runner kit is £12.95, and the placemats kit is £14.95 (to make four)

There is a FREE ONLINE TUTORIALS page at
 www.janetgranger.co.uk/tutorials.htm so that you can see how easy it is to create these mini kits.

Petite Properties on Ebay

Hello everyone!
For a while now we have realised that here in PP HQ we are fast running out of storage space, to the point where we are positively bulging at the seams! 
So... we have decided it is finally time to have a (much needed) BIG clear out.

As a result over the next few weeks we will be auctioning off most of our unwanted back catalogue of ex display items on EBAY!

All the houses that have been earmarked for ebay are the constructed / undecorated ones that were both featured in our instructions and also displayed on the PP stand. 
Currently we have listed the following PP Ex display items on Ebay;

Parsnip Cottage:
Bluebell Cottage:
Wash House & WC:
Little Acorns School (in 1:24th):
Little Acorns School (in 1:48th)
Playground (or walled garden base)
Snowdrop Cottage:
Thimble Cottage:

All of our ex display models were made by myself and have been signed on the under side.
Our Ebay seller ID is petite-properties
All of our auctions will start at only 99p and have no reserves. 
We will also post worldwide.
These listings are only the tip of the iceberg and we plan to list many more!
So why not grab yourself a bargain????

Happy bidding!
