I'm Karen Crawford and I'm thrilled to be the new owner of MiniEtchers!
I will be bringing back your favorite miniature designs and soon will introduce new things. This will be a staggered re-opening, starting in April with Shellie’s beautiful and popular Eastlake Victorian designs in 1:24 (half-scale) and 1:48 (quarter-scale). As I get myself and my building process organized, I look forward to bringing back all of the laser cut and 3D printed MiniEtcher kits that have been so popular.
I will be working to delight you with the highest level of quality in products and support. I want my kits to empower you to be creative and proud of your minis!
My thanks to Shellie for the opportunity to continue the business she loved so much. Shellie has done a tremendous amount of work in the miniature industry spanning 35 years, starting by writing product reports and how-to's for the Kimberly House. She has inspired small scale miniaturists to use their own creativity with her kits. She's retired now but still working on her own projects and asked me to convey her thanks for all the years of trying to reach new levels of details in the tiniest of things.
I will introduce myself and my miniatures in these pages. I'm hoping you'll email me some things you have done with MiniEtchers kits. We'll share some tips and tricks. I’ll also be telling you my plans for the future of MiniEtchers. In the meantime, see the About page for more information on my background.
Welcome and thank you for visiting!
