About Us

The CMMA was founded in 1986 for the purpose of bringing together modelers, miniaturists and carvers interested in building operating carousels models. CMMA membership includes a subscription to the quarterly publication, Horse Tales, a membership directory and the opportunity to share the fellowship of other carousel modelers. Annual conventions are held at various locations throughout the U.S. Please see the conventions tab for past photos.

CMMA accepts memberships on a calendar year basis. Joining at any point will include the four issues of the Horse Tales for the calendar year. Membership is $30.00 per year. Go to the home tab for a printable membership application.

If you are interested in carousel models, miniatures, or wood carving, please contact CMMA for additional information. You are reading this on our newly constructed webpage. Tell your Friends. We would love for more aficionados to join us and share the hobby.
