AQS QuiltWeek * Des Moines, IA
October 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - October 7, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
This will be our second AQS show for 2017. We are very excited to be heading to Des Moines for this large 4-day quilt show. Hours on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are 9am to 6pm. Saturday hours are 9am to 5pm.
Sawyer Creek Artistry will be featuring Rich’s hand-turned wooden seam rippers. We have 3 styles available: seam ripper/stiletto combo, seam ripper on a necklace, and a seam ripper/computer stylus combo for use on your touch screen. All rippers come in wood from the Missouri Ozarks – cedar, cherry, locust, oak, Osage orange [hedge], and walnut. We also have Olive wood from the Holy Land. We have a limited amount of Colorwood which is Vermont maple which has been dyed and laminated.
Impress the folks you sew or quilt with by grabbing a “gun case” for your seam ripper. Just don’t try to take it through TSA!
For folks who enjoy working with yarn, we have wooden yarn bowls available. Some have the special J-hook cut into the side through which to pull your yarn. These bowls have several layers of shellac inside and out, and a light paste wax on the outside. There is no wax inside to come off on your yarn.
Our 7-piece crochet kit comes with one wooden handle of your choice and 6 interchangeable hooks (C, D, E, F, G and H). All fit into a lovely carrying box with a magnetic side closure.
Another nifty little tool is our wooden seam press. People who like to finger press or who paper-piece will really appreciate this one.
Come check out all our products at Booth #1328. We look forward to meeting you in Des Moines!
