OMAHA QUILTS 2018: A PASSION FOR QUILTIING

June 21 @ 5:00 pm - June 23 @ 4:00 pm

THIS WILL BE OUR FIRST TIME AT THIS STATE-WIDE SHOW.  WE’VE HEARD SUCH GOOD THINGS ABOUT IT. THIS IS THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY FOR THE OMAHA QUILTERS, SO THIS IS SURE TO BE A WONDERFUL EVENT!  THE SHOW OPENS ON THURSDAY EVENING 6/21 FROM 5PM TO 8PM.  FRIDAY 6/22 THE HOURS ARE 9AM UNTIL 7PM.  SATURDAY 6/23 THE HOURS WILL BE 9AM UNTIL 4PM.

WE WILL BE FEATURING RICH’S HAND-TURNED WOODEN SEAM RIPPERS IN TWO DIFFERENT STYLES.  THE MOST POPULAR IS THE COMBO STYLE WITH A RIPPER ON ONE END AND A STILETTO BLADE ON THE OTHER.  THE NECKLACE VERSION COMES ON A CHAIN.  IT IS A RIPPER ONLY WITH A MAGNET TO HOLD IT TO THE NECKLACE.  MOST OF OUR RIPPERS ARE MADE OF WOOD FROM THE MISSOURI OZARKS – CEDAR, CHERRY, LOCUST, OAK, OSAGE ORANGE (HEDGE) AND BLACK WALNUT.  WE HAVE OLIVE WOOD FROM BETHLEHEM IN THE HOLY LAND.  FOR THOSE WHO LIKE A POP OF COLOR IN THEIR TOOLS, WE NOW CARRY COLORWOOD MADE OF VERMONT BIRCH.  IT IS LAYERS OF DIFFERENT COLORED WOOD LAMINATED TOGETHER.  YOU’RE SURE TO FIND YOU FAVORITE COLOR HERE!

RICH IS TURNING MANY BEAUTIFUL YARN BOWLS TO SHOW THIS YEAR.  THEY ARE MADE IN VARIOUS SHAPES AND STYLES, INCLUDING THE J-HOOK CUTOUT FOR YOUR YARN TO FEED THROUGH.  KNITTERS WILL LOVE THESE!

FOR THOSE WHO CROCHET, WE HAVE OUR 7-PIECE CROCHET KIT.  IT COMES IN ITS OWN BOX WITH ONE WOODEN HANDLE AND 6 INTERCHANGEABLE HOOKS (C-D-E-F-G-H).  WE WILL HAVE A SKEIN OF YARN AVAILABLE SO YOU CAN TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

THROW IN OUR WOODEN SEAM PRESSES, BINDING WINDERS, GUN CASES FOR CARRYING YOUR RIPPER AND SOME OF BECKY’S QUILTS, AND YOU’VE GOT YOURSELF A MUST-SEE BOOTH!  WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN LA VISTA!
