Bill Studebaker is an Artisan in furniture with the International Guild of Miniature Artisans (IGMA). Barbara Studebaker has also been accepted as an IGMA Artisan in needlework. We can work with you to design and craft your dream house, room or accessory. Attention is given to each detail of our wood and needlework. We work primarily in 1:12 scale, but accept work in other scales. Looking for something unusual? Please ask! We enjoy customizing, and would be delighted to discuss individual commissions.

The Studebaker Collection includes antique and vintage dollhouses, accessories, textiles and laces. We sell dollhouse furniture and accessories which are no longer in production such as Sonia Messer, Tootsietoy and Strombecker. We enjoy larger scales too and have been know to make and collect items for Hitty and other larger dolls.Let us know what you're looking for!

Selections from past and present IGMA Artisans and other quality miniature craftspeople are available. Scale silver, pottery, furniture, textiles, scrimshaw, and many other “really perfect” items are offered. Let us know what dollhouse miniatures you are collecting, past or present, and we will find it for you!
