January 2017 quarterly: Marnie King and her Miniatures

January 18, 2017, Kendal Auditorium

Marnie King has been making small scale works since childhood, and her skill has resulted in exhibits at the Delaware Art Museum, and the Philadelphia Flower Show. This holiday season she has an exhibit of work at the Rockwood Mansion Museum in Wilmington. She has created historical dioramas that depict different eras for the Iron Hill Museum and the New Swedish Centre in Wilmington.

Marnie's professional career in Occupational Therapy introduced her to many types of crafts, and she has become fascinated with needle-worked miniatures. She has stitched a room box filled with petit point, cross stitch, sewing and quilting that show historical and family scenes.

Marnie is a member of the Delaware "First State Mini Club" serving on the board for 25 years in all capacities. Currently she is the DE state rep for the National Association for Miniature Enthusiasts (NAME) and has been a life member since 1990.

Come to the meeting a bit early and get a cup of coffee from the ground level cafeteria.
