NAME Day Projects


NAME Day takes place on the first Saturday of October each year to kick-off International Dollhouse and Miniatures Month. A tribute to our parent organization, N.A.M.E. (the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts), the concept is to have everyone working on the same project on the same day all over the world. Each year a new project is designed. Kits are made available from multiple wood cutters in a choice of wood and scale. Club members gather to put their kits together, usually with lots of sharing and food! Then each person finishes the item in their own style. From our creative types–every project is transformed into a unique work of art! This page highlights our member’s NAME Day projects.

These are the kits released by year:

2010 – 1st Annual NAME Day – “THE HUTCH”

2011 – 2nd Annual NAME Day – “WORKCENTER” (Kitchen Island)

This second kit, the Workcenter, had a butcher block top, lower cabinet and shelves at either end. It was just as complicated and difficult to put together as it looks!
