Yes, We are going to try it again on Wednesday July 25, 2017 – take a day off the last time we tried to take a day off and take the grand kids to the shore it rained. The weather is supposed to be good tomorrow so we will be closed and re-open on Thursday July, 26, 2017.
If you need anything, I will help you on Thursday – thanks- Barry and company!
There are still a few spots left in my upcoming Fine Writing Instrument -Pen Turning Class next week held at Peters Valley School of Craft. It is a week long class and we make at least 12 pens including a rollerball and fountain pen. Stabilization, Clear Casting, Alumilite Casting, Segmentation and much more! So if you are free call Peters Valley and sign up for the last few spots and we will have fun!
On a bummer note – we have cancelled our trip to the Wildwood boardwalk due to inclement weather. So – we will be open tomorrow Thursday July 6 – the grand kids are disappointed but we will make it up to them!
Fireman Pen Kit Back In Stock! Yes, we have a VERY limited supply of them in fact by the time you read this they may be out of stock again. However, we are expecting a very large shipment of them the second week of July but for now we do have some – so get them while they are HOT! (sorry for the bad pun!)
On another note – this Thursday July 6th I am actually going to take a day off and take the kids to the Jersey Shore to eat junk from one end of the boardwalk to the other and ride all the rides! So if you call and no one answers that is why – we will be back on Friday but on Thursday we are going to have fun!
Monday morning starts another week long Fine Writing Instrument class followed by a
weekend Bangle Making Class. As you can see my Expedition is loaded with supplies for the students for this 7 day stretch. Marc Adams just added this magnificent new turning center. The sold out 15 student class will have a lot of work to do but it will be FUN!
I will keep you updated – Happy Turning – Barry
Just Arrived the New Survival Pen – Three items in one! You can start a fire, break glass and take names with this new pen! The unique cap portion of the pen contains a carbide glass breaker. The lower barrel contains the flint fire rod when struck against the clip, it cause a spark which is used to start a fire! This pen just may save your life someday okay not so dramatic – but it is pretty cool!
Tina Wissen continues to offer her whimsical style in creating
her own polymer clay masterpieces!
Well it is back to work for me after this last weekend Craft Show – I have to replenish the stock before Memorial day where I will be at Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton, MA May 27, 28 & 29. Happy Turning – Barry
This is my tent booth setup for outdoor shows. We are inside a large covered tent so it is a tent inside another tent and it is raining like crazy! Even the best of plans can not beat Mother Nature! Here I am all set up and expecting great crowds at the Artrider show this weekend and today (Friday) the show closed due to torrential rain and very strong winds!
Well, there still is Saturday and Sunday and the weather is expected to improve, we can only hope it does!
With the Woodworking show season over, it is time to concentrate on the Craft Show season and these blanks are always a good seller. Candy Dean’s dragon scales look really good on the Dragon Pen and Steve Kondo’s segmented blanks are always popular either on the Sierra’s or on the Venetian or Arcadia pen kits. we will add some more polymer clay blanks tomorrow from Candy and from Tina! Stay tuned and Happy turning! – Barry
Lenora & I want to thank all our friends who visited us at all the Wood working shows these past 13 weeks. We are now back in the warehouse and ready to bring in more new and exciting products.
We kept telling you at the Woodworking Shows about the Fireman’s pen and it is finally being delivered to us tomorrow – Thursday! Unfortunately we only will receive a very limited quantity of them so if you are interested, order quickly before they are gone. We have other surprises we will offer in the coming weeks – so stay tuned!
This is the fifth week of the Woodworking Show season and we are having a great time seeing all our friends. If you are in the Indianapolis area stop by and say hello, we will be at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in the Champions Pavilion. I will put on three seminars each day of the show so stop by and show me your latest work of art! Speaking of art, we just received our shipment of new Motorcycle Pens with the Eagle clip on them! These are great for any motorcycle enthusiast. Another piece of art is the New fast selling pen, the Archer. See these pens and many more at The Woodworking Show this week! Happy Turning – Barry
