International Quilt Festival * Houston, TX
November 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - November 5, 2017 @ 4:00 pm$12.00
This is the country’s largest quilt show! The preview night is November 1st from 7 – 10pm. Show hours Thursday, Friday and Saturday are from 10am to 7pm. Hours on Sunday are 10am to 4pm.
We will have Rich’s hand-turned wooden seam rippers made from Ozark woods – cedar, cherry, locust, oak, Osage orange, Olive wood from the Holy Land and Black walnut. We have 3 styles of seam rippers: seam ripper/stiletto combo, seam ripper on a necklace, and a seam ripper/computer stylus combo for your touch screen. Our rippers come in different thicknesses and shapes, and we invite you to hold them in your hand to find one that’s right for YOU!
We will be showing yarn bowls made of various woods. Some have the distinctive J-hook through which to pull your yarn, and some bowls are plain (usually because the grain of the wood is too pretty to cut!).
Our Crochet Kit includes a hand-turned wooden handle and 6 interchangeable hooks (C, D, E, F, G & H). They come in a lovely carrying box that closes with a magnetic strip on the side. This makes a wonderful gift for the fiber artist in your life.
Another handy little quilting tool is a wooden seam press. This is for people who like to finger-press their seams, or for those who enjoy paper-piecing.
Be sure to look us up at Houston International!
