Cathy Verbicki

President

Cathy comes from a multi-generational miniature home- her mother was also a miniature enthusiast! Both her and her mother Nora spent years in the Miniature Enthusiastic Club together and have many special memories of creating together and encouraging each other. Now Cathy has been in the club for 30 years and counting, and this is her first year as President. Wherever Cathy goes she is known as a warm welcoming person making everyone feel comfortable and included. She hopes to extend that to any new member who would like to join the club. Cathy also has a love for learning about other cultures and history which brought her to working at the Royal Alberta Museum for many years. Whether you need a good lunch spot or good conversation Cathy is your woman.

Erika Baker

Vice President

Erika feels that she has been interested in small things most of her life but didn’t join the Club until 2009. She built her first dollhouse when she was expecting her third child ( she thought she was having another boy and to her surprise her daughter arrived ). However her daughter has not been interested in minis so Erika is trying to entice the grandkids to enjoy them. She has worked in most scale’s including G-scale buildings for her husband’s backyard model railroad. Even though your life can become chaotic at times you can always create a perfect world in miniature.

Kyla Shegelski

Secretary

Kyla first became interested in miniatures while visiting her cousin in Montreal - she had decorated her bookshelves with miniature food and Kyla was inspired to try making her own out of polymer clay. Since joining MEE in 2015, Kyla has expanded her interests to all things miniature and has been truly inspired by the more experienced members of the club.

Tina MacDonald

Workshop Coordinator

Tina has been involved with miniatures ever since her husband bought her a dollhouse on their honeymoon, in 1976. She sells her miniature kits on Etsy, and is responsible for organizing 8 workshops per year for MEE. You can contact her through the email link above.

Sandra Kitchener

Treasurer

When Sandra’s first granddaughter arrived the dream to build a dollhouse came to life. Joining the Miniature Enthusiasts of Edmonton helped her achieve this dream and her granddaughter is very proud of what they accomplished together. With two more granddaughters and two more houses completed she is now enjoying building in smaller scales and sharing her love of all things small with her grandchildren. She hopes to be able to work with the club to showcase and inspire others with the amazing pieces created by our clubs’ creators.
