Wood Turnings by Cynthia
New Hampshire artisan, Cynthia Ellis – juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen – has been turning colorful wood into useful, beautiful works of craft for over 30 years, exhibiting her creativity at fine art and craft shows across the country, with unique pieces made to the highest quality standards. Working freehand at the lathe, as the spirit moves, each piece is truly one-of-a-kind.
“ I purchased one [seam ripper] and it's still my favorite. It's beautiful, was sharp when I received it and it's still sharp. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another. Because it's my favorite, I take very good care of it and have never misplaced it.”
“ Yours were my favorites of all my hair sticks; I've since cut my hair very short, so they have gone to my daughter. She loves them as well, especially since they are among the few that actually work with her hair which extends to mid-thigh and is very thick. ”
“ My wife loved her tools. She's a quilter, and she keeps them right at her sewing machine all the time.”
“ As with the other pieces I have bought from you, it is absolutely unique and beautiful. It was a letter opener and I'm truly amazed at how good it actually works. It's not just a beautiful piece of art but functional. “
“ OMG I LOVE YOUR HAIRSTICKS!!!!!!”
“ I just adore the look and feel of my WoodbyC crochet hooks - they really make me feel inspired as well as being the perfect length, weight and feel for use. ”
“ ...actually bought several of the dip pens... the first because it was so pretty, after that it was because of the way they felt in my hands. very comfortable... and still very pretty. “

Greetings WOODbyC Enthusiasts,
My left thumb surgery (CMC basal joint arthroplasty) was just before Thanksgiving. I'm recovering, and my remaining stock (including seam rippers for readers of VOGUE PATTERN magazine) is in my Etsy Store, where you can shop 24/7 until we meet again at a quilt show in your neck of the woods!
Thanks for your support,
Cynthia (I’m the “C” in WOODbyC)
