Welcome to the NAME Region N-1 Website. The National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts was founded in 1972 by Allegra Mott to promote the craft of miniature making through the association and friendship of its artisans, craftsmen and collectors. NAME is an educational, non-profit organization dedicated to the miniature collector and builder through sharing ideas and experiences among its members. Our goal is to link people of like minds in order to share our love of the hobby that captivates us.
The N-1 region serves NAME. members in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Las Vegas, Nevada and El Paso, Texas. This website is the place to come for information about events in our area, such as State Days, workshops, Miniature shows and exhibits, local miniature clubs and other activities.
In addition to our Events Calendar, you will also find our Photo Gallery, which includes photos of recent events in the N-1 region. Our Contact page provides you with contact information for our leadership team, including our state representatives, newsletter editor and webmaster. A visit to the Places to Go page will provide you with links to shops and museums in our region. Copies of the current and previous regional newsletters are available on our Newsletter page.
