Meet Ada Holloway . . .

“I have made miniatures off and on since the 1980’s. All kinds of media, especially leather and beads, are fun for me. A few months after retiring from teaching, I found a miniature store near me, Huntley House Miniatures in Riverbank, CA, and I have been teaching there for the last three years. It has been a challenge to create a new project for each week’s Make and Take classes. My goal is to raise the skills of my students and to convince them that they can make some beautiful miniatures. Along the way we have found a great group of people, close friends, and lots of fun. I also love designing, and I am working on a line of easy to make furniture for the beginner. I’m learning to use Sketchup, a free CAD program, so I can share precise plans with my students. I do not want to make 20 of this and 20 of that, but I do commission work and sell my minis. My focus is on designing new projects and to make it possible for more and more people to make their own miniatures.”

Custom Dollhouses Dollhouse Kits Dollhouse remodeling Dollhouse Electrical & Supplies Wooden Toys & Games Custom Furniture Custom Cabinets & Vanities Church Furnishings

As our saying goes “If You Can Dream It We, Can Build It”. I have built many pieces, both large and small, from only a picture or a hasty sketch on a scrap piece of paper. We can custom build dollhouses, remodel and electrify dollhouses, build handmade heirloom toys and games, handcraft custom furniture, entertainment centers, end tables, coffee tables, cabinets, bars... the possibilities are endless.
