HOUSTON INTERNATIONAL QUILT SHOW – 2018

November 7 @ 7:00 pm - November 11 @ 4:00 pm

WE’RE HEADING BACK TO HOUSTON FOR OUR LAST SHOW OF THE YEAR!  THE SHOW KICKS OFF WITH A PREVIEW ON WEDNESDAY 11/7 FROM 7PM TO 10PM.  SHOW HOURS FOR THURSDAY 11/8, FRIDAY 11/9 AND SATURDAY 11/10 ARE 10AM TO 7PM.  HOURS FOR SUNDAY 11/7 ARE 10AM TO 4PM.

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 OF VERMONT BIRCH.  THE DIFFERENT LAYERS ARE DYED THEN LAMINATED BACK TOGETHER.  EACH SEAM RIPPER HAS A DIFFERENT SHAPE AND FEEL, SO WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO HOLD THEM IN YOUR HAND TO FIND THE SHAPE AND SIZE MOST COMFORTABLE FOR YOU.

FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO KNIT AND CROCHET, WE HAVE WOODEN YARN BOWLS.  THEY COME IN DIFFERENT WOODS, DIFFERENT SIZES AND DIFFERENT STYLES.  SOME HAVE THE J-HOOK THROUGH WHICH YOU PULL YOUR YARN AND OTHERS ARE SIMPLY PLAIN.  ALL ARE UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL.

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

ROUNDING OUT OUR INVENTORY ARE WOODEN SEAM PRESSES, BINDING WINDERS, GUN CASES (TO CARRY YOUR RIPPER IN STYLE) AND SOME OF BECKY’S QUILTS.

THINGS REALLY ARE BIGGER IN TEXAS, AND THIS IS THE LARGEST TRADE SHOW HELD IN HOUSTON!  COME SEE FOR YOURSELF AND COME SAY HELLO TO RICH AND BECKY!
