November’s issue is about to go on sale and just in the nick of time with its welcome injection of colour as the drab autumn weather sets in. The issue is all about using colour successfully in the doll’s house, and luckily we’ve got plenty of advice from the experts.

I know that you'll love it but I’m also looking forward to finding out what my colleagues here at GMC think about the issue. Despite working on our other magazine titles many of them are avid readers of The Dolls’ House magazine because there is ‘so much to read’ which is music to my ears! As much as I love our projects for all you hands-on miniaturists, I do indeed want the magazine to be the one title that you look forward to reading as you snuggle down in that armchair with a cup of tea to hand, and maybe a cat on your lap (do not disturb!).

I know that November’s issue won’t disappoint, so here’s a sneak preview.

Find out how to make that comfy chair for your dolls’ house! Beate Klotz explains how in 1:12 and 1:24 scale. Pick a fabric to suit your own interior scheme (we just love the funky patchwork ones).
