Good Sam Miniatures Showcase 2013 - Pete and Pam Boorum Class

After 2 days of nice relaxing driving through Oregon and California we arrived to San Jose, CA where the Good Sam Miniatures Showcase will take place this coming weekend.

Yesterday I had a class with Pete and Pam Boorum. There were 8 students making a Marquetry chest. Pete and Pam Boorum are not only excellent at what they are doing but they are great teaches as well. Under their supervision I made this chest with marquetry on the top lid.

I had to go to set up a table and still need to install the hinges. This is a picture of Pam Boorum (with magnifying glasses) showing us, students, how to attach hinges to the chest.

It was a great class!

There are 116 dealers from different countries at the show and I hopefully I will be able to take pictures of their work tomorrow. It will be a busy day!

At the end I wanted to show you the beautiful sunrise in early morning in California.

Natalia, off to bed!

Your chest looks beautiful, Natalia!!! And the marquetry reminds of the flying geese quilt pattern.

Great job on the chest, Natalia. That inlay is gorgeous. I can't wait to see more pictures. Glad you are having such a great time & networking. :)

Thank you, Elga! Yes, it is the Flying Geese quilt pattern on the lid. Marquetry was my favorite part in this class. Hugs!
