QUILT EXPO 2018 – MADISON, WI

THIS WILL BE OUR SECOND YEAR AT THIS VERY BUSY, EXCITING QUILT SHOW!  HOURS FOR THURSDAY 9/6 AND FRIDAY 9/7 ARE 9AM TO 6PM.  HOURS FOR SATURDAY 9/8 ARE 9AM TO 5PM.  YOU WILL NEED ALL 3 DAYS TO SEE ALL THE QUILT EXHIBITS AND TO VISIT ALL THE VENDORS!

SAWYER CREEK ARTISTRY WILL BE FEATURING OUR HAND-TURNED WOODEN SEAM RIPPERS.  RICH TURNS THESE FROM WOOD FROM THE MISSOURI OZARKS – CEDAR, CHERRY, LOCUST, OAK, OSAGE ORANGE (HEDGE) AND BLACK WALNUT.  HE ALSO USES OLIVE WOOD FROM BETHLEHEM IN THE HOLY LAND.  OUR NEWEST WOOD IS COLORWOOD MADE FROM VERMONT BIRCH.  LAYERS OF WOOD ARE DYED DIFFERENT COLORS THEN LAMINATED BACK TOGETHER TO FORM A LOVELY, UNIQUE SEAM RIPPER.  YOU ARE SURE TO FIND A WOOD YOU LIKE THAT WILL FEEL GREAT IN YOUR HAND.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO KNIT OR CROCHET, WE WILL HAVE A SELECTION OF WOODEN YARN BOWLS AVAILABLE IN DIFFERENT WOODS, STYLES AND SHAPES.  SOME OF THEM WILL HAVE THE J-HOOK THROUGH WHICH YOU PULL YOUR YARN, AND SOME WILL BE SIMPLY PLAIN.  ALL ARE UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL.

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

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