Fall Show Recap

Posted by Eleda Towle on

Hi everyone! I'm tucking random photos into this article  - Enjoy!  (If you want a copy of any of them, just email me and tell me which one(s).)   [The closest thing to a group photo we got... We really need to do that next time!]   Thanks for making our fall show so much fun!  I had a blast and I hope you did, too.  My first thought on this show was how much tougher the competition was than in spring.  You guys really took to heart Ashley's suggestions at the spring show and stepped up your competition level! ...

Collector's Class - A Class Like No Other!

Posted by Eleda Towle on

 Let's talk about Collector's Class!  I'm excited about this because Collector's Class is often one of the most fun classes in a show!  It's definitely the most fun for other exhibitors to look at.  It's your way of showing everyone, "Here's what I collect!" and getting to see what they collect. Collector's Class is technically part of the Collectability Division, but is a very special class, different from all others.  While the rest of the show focuses on a single model for each entry, Collector's Class is a display of 12 models shown together!   Rules vary between shows, so...
