HOUSTON INTERNATIONAL QUILT FESTIVAL – 2019

October 31 @ 8:00 am - November 3 @ 5:00 pm

WE WILL BE SHOWING RICH’S HAND-TURNED WOODEN SEAM RIPPER/STILETTO COMBOS AND OUR SEAM RIPPERS ON A NECKLACE.  THE RIPPER ATTACHES TO A CHAIN WITH A MAGNET SO YOU NEVER LOSE YOUR RIPPER.  ALL RIPPERS COME IN WOOD FROM THE MISSOURI OZARKS:  CEDAR, CHERRY, LOCUST, OAK, OSAGE ORANGE (HEDGE) AND BLACK WALNUT.  OLIVE WOOD FROM THE HOLY LAND IS ALSO POPULAR.  WE HAVE COLORWOOD MADE FROM WHITE BIRCH IN VERMONT.  THEY CUT THE WOOD IN VERY THIN LAYERS, DYE IT, THEN LAMINATE THE LAYERS BACK TOGETHER.  THESE ARE BRIGHT, PRETTY TOOLS THAT ARE EASY TO SEE ON YOUR SEWING TABLE!

ALSO LOOK FOR THESE TOOLS:  WOODEN SEAM PRESSES, 7-BIT RATCHETING SCREWDRIVERS, WOODEN NEEDLE CASES AND MINI-TOOL KITS WITH 4 SMALL SCREWDRIVERS.

FOR THOSE WHO CROCHET WE HAVE A 7-PIECE CROCHET KIT IN ITS OWN GIFT BOX.  IT INCLUDES ONE WOODEN HANDLE AND 6 INTERCHANGEABLE HOOKS – C-D-E-F-G-H.  THE NEXT 3 LARGER HOOKS (I-J-K) ARE AVAILABLE AS AN ADD-ON.  YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME TO TRY OUT THE CROCHET HANDLES WITH THE YARN AND FREE STYLE CROCHET ON THE TABLE.

WE’RE HOPING TO SEE YOU IN HOUSTON THIS YEAR!
