“ 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.”

Made from domestic hardwoods

and also, rare ‘UN-obtainium’

Exotic-looking DymondWood (an ‘extinct’ dyed, birch laminate) was created by the now-defunct Rutland Plywood Corp. of VT. It is no longer obtainable; hence the nickname! My leftover stock will soon accent natural, domestic woods.

Now I’m happy… Getting ready for the first of six (for me) Winter Crafts Market appearances, locally! Wentworth Greenhouses (of Rollinsford, NH) will again host their crafts (and farmer’s) market series.

I’ll be at the first one on Nov 17th and hope to see you there! Come see my newest item – a magnetic needle threader. I call it “th’RED-HOT!”
