AQS – GRAND RAPIDS 2018

August 22 @ 9:00 am - August 25 @ 4:00 pm

THIS WILL BE OUR THIRD AQS SHOW FOR 2018!  THESE PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO TREAT THEIR VENDORS! SHOW HOURS FOR WEDNESDAY 8/22, THURSDAY 8/23 AND FRIDAY 8/24 ARE FROM 9AM TO 6PM.  SATURDAY 8/25 HOURS ARE 9AM TO 4PM.

SAWYER CREEK ARTISTRY WILL BE FEATURING OUR HAND-TURNED WOODEN SEAM RIPPERS.  MOST OF THESE ARE MADE OF WOOD FROM THE MISSOURI OZARKS – CEDAR, CHERRY, LOCUST, OAK, OSAGE ORANGE (HEDGE) AND BLACK WALNUT.  WE ALSO USE OLIVE WOOD FROM BETHLEHEM IN THE HOLY LAND.  OUR NEWEST WOOD IS COLORWOOD MADE OF VERMONT BIRCH.  LAYERS OF WOOD ARE DYED DIFFERENT COLORS THEN LAMINATED TOGETHER TO CREATE A STRIKING, UNIQUE SEAM RIPPER.  YOU’RE SURE TO FIND THE PERFECT RIPPER IN A WOOD YOU LIKE THAT FEELS GREAT IN THE HAND.

RICH IS BUSY TURNING WOODEN YARN BOWLS TO SELL AT OUR BOOTH.  THERE ARE DIFFERENT WOODS, STYLES AND SIZES.  SOME HAVE THE J-HOOK THROUGH WHICH YOU PULL YOUR YARN, AND SOME ARE SIMPLY PLAIN.  ALL ARE BEAUTIFUL AND WARM.

WE WILL ALSO HAVE OUR 7-PIECE CROCHET KIT AVAILABLE.  THIS KIT COMES IN ITS OWN BOX AND HAS ONE WOODEN HANDLE AND 6 INTERCHANGEABLE HOOKS (C-D-E-F-G-H).  THERE WILL BE A SKEIN OF YARN AVAILABLE SO YOU CAN TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

LOOK FOR WOODEN SEAM PRESSES, BINDING WINDERS, GUN CASES (TO CARRY YOUR RIPPER IN STYLE) AND SOME OF BECKY’S QUILTS FOR SALE.

WE HOPE YOU COME BY OUR BOOTH TO SHOP AND SAY HELLO!
