|A trade of miniature items. Swap participants send a specific number of IDENTICAL items to the swap coordinator. The coordinator then redistributes them so that all participants get that same number of DIFFERENT items back from the other participants.
|UnFinished Object - Often a kit, but could also be any miniature that was started, but never completed.
|Workshops are a teacher led class where you learn how to make or do something in miniature. Quarter Connection has online workshops. You get a kit or supplies with instructions in the mail. The teacher may schedule the date and time that they will be available for a ZOOM session for either a demo, Q&A session or a full blown class.
