Carlson said the Townhall Miniatures Club would love to attract more members. Like many clubs with a long history, the 30-year-old Townhall Miniatures Club has an aging, although extremely dedicated, membership, she added.
Townhall Miniatures Club currently has nine members. When Carlson joined in 1987, the club had 25 members, she said.
Some of the members have moved; some have died; and some have vision trouble and let the hobby go, she said.
“The young people are more interested in learning how to do things online than in taking a class somewhere,” Carlson said.
Yet today's hobbyists also find more tools are available to them now.
