About two years ago, with a lot of help and encouragement from a fellow American miniaturist Dick Tabor, the Miniature Enthusiasts of Edmonton club began working on a dollhouse filled with references to children's literature. Dick provided a list of literature he had used in his dollhouse with the same theme and club member Joanne Root who works in the children's department of the St. Albert Public library added her suggestions.
The house, an RGT QuickBuild colonial, was purchased from a MEE member who had used it as a demonstration model in her business. Members of the club were divided into geographical groups and each group was assigned a room in the house to furnish.
The house was completed and displayed at our Show and Sale on September 18, 2011, and donated to the Children's Department of the St. Albert Public Library on October 11, 2011.
After the presentation of the house, the library hosted a lovely tea party for club members who were able to attend.
