AQS – VIRGINIA BEACH 2018

October 3 @ 9:00 am - October 6 @ 4:00 pm

THIS WILL BE OUR 4TH AQS SHOW OF THE YEAR!  SHOW HOURS FOR WEDNESDAY 10/3, THURSDAY 10/4 AND FRIDAY 10/5 WILL BE 9AM TO 6PM.  SATURDAY 10/6 HOURS ARE 9AM TO 5PM.

SAWYER CREEK ARTISTRY WILL BE FEATURING OUR HAND-TURNED WOODEN SEAM RIPPERS MADE OF WOOD FROM THE MISSOURI OZARKS – CEDAR, CHERRY, LOCUST, OAK, OSAGE ORANGE (HEDGE) AND BLACK WALNUT.  WE ALSO HAVE OLIVE WOOD FROM BETHLEHEM IN THE HOLY LAND.  OUR LATEST WOOD IS COLORWOOD MADE FROM VERMONT BIRCH.  THE LAYERS OF WOOD ARE DYED DIFFERENT COLORS THEN LAMINATED BACK TOGETHER.  EACH SEAM RIPPER IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT, SO WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO HOLD ONE IN YOUR HAND TO FIND THE ONE THAT FEELS BEST FOR YOU.

WE WILL HAVE A SELECTION OF WOODEN YARN BOWLS AVAILABLE.  THEY COME IN VARIOUS SHAPES AND SIZES.  SOME HAVE THE J-HOOK THROUGH WHICH YOU PULL YOUR YARN, AND OTHERS ARE SIMPLY PLAIN.  ALL ARE UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL.

FOR THOSE WHO CROCHET WE OFFER A 7-PIECE CROCHET KIT.  IT COMES IN ITS OWN BOX AND CONTAINS ONE WOODEN HANDLE WITH 6 INTERCHANGEABLE HOOKS (C-D-E-F-G-H).  THERE WILL BE A SKEIN OF YARN FOR YOU TO TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.  IT USUALLY FEATURES AN INTERESTING (?) FREE FORM CROCHET PIECE!

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

HOPE TO SEE YOU IN VIRGINIA BEACH!
