QUILTCON EAST 2019

February 21 @ 10:00 am - February 24 @ 4:00 pm

GET READY TO HEAD TO MUSIC CITY, USA (NASHVILLE, TN!).  THIS FUN SHOW IS PUT ON BY THE MODERN QUILT GUILD.  HOURS FOR THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY (02/21, 02/22 AND 02/23) ARE 10:00 AM TO 6:00 PM.  ON SUNDAY (02/24) THE HOURS ARE 10:00 AM TO 4:00 PM.  WE WILL BE AT BOOTH # 1007.

WE WILL HAVE RICH’S HAND-TURNED SEAM RIPPERS MADE OF WOOD FROM THE MISSOURI OZARKS:  CEDAR, CHERRY, HEDGE (OSAGE ORANGE), LOCUST, OAK AND BLACK WALNUT.  WE HAVE RIPPERS MADE OF OLIVE WOOD FROM THE HOLY CITY OF BETHLEHEM.  OUR LATEST WOOD IS COLORWOOD MADE OF THIN LAYERS OF BIRCH FROM VERMONT.  THE LAYERS ARE DYED FIRST, THEN LAMINATED BACK TOGETHER IN GORGEOUS COLORS.  WE WANT YOU TO FIND THE BEST SEAM RIPPER FOR YOUR HAND, AND THAT MEANS HOLDING THEM UNTIL YOU FIND ONE THAT FITS YOUR HAND.

THE OTHER VERSION OF OUR SEAM RIPPER IS ON A NECKLACE.  THE HANDLE ATTACHES TO THE CHAIN WITH A MAGNET SO YOU ALWAYS KNOW WHERE YOUR RIPPER IS!

IN OTHER TOOLS, WE NOW CARRY A WOODEN NEEDLECASE, A 7-BIT RATCHETING SCREWDRIVER, AND A MINIATURE TOOL KIT.  WE HAVE A SEAM PRESS MADE OF SOLID WOOD FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO FINGER PRESS OR DO PAPER-PIECING.

WE’LL BE SHOWING OUR 7-PIECE CROCHET KIT (ONE WOODEN HANDLE WITH 6 INTERCHANGEABLE HOOKS – C-D-E-F-G-H).   NEW THIS SUMMER ARE THE NEXT THREE BIGGER HOOK SIZES – I-J-K.  THERE IS ALWAYS YARN AVAILABLE TO TRY OUT OUR CROCHET HANDLES BEFORE YOU BUY.

COME JOIN US IN NASHVILLE!
