“ 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.”

Artist on the road!

Greetings WOODbyC Enthusiasts,

My first thumb surgery was a great success and production is getting back to speed. In fact, I’m taking my work on the road … to California! Thanksgiving weekend I’ll be setting up my booth in San Francisco at the prestigious Celebration of Craftswomen show. Then a week of visiting friends and family in the Bay Area. Yay! I won’t be able to process purchases or requests until my return. I’ll let you know when that happens.

Thanks for your patience,

Cynthia  (I’m the “C” in WOODbyC)
