Something for everyone

E-Packets available only


Hello Everyone,

After much consideration I have decided that the best way for you, my Mom's friends, students, and colleagues, to still have access to her work and get items needed to complete projects is to turn the handling of it over to the company who produced most of the wood to begin with, PineCraft Inc. Moving forward the wood that Mom used will be available at www.pinecraftinc.com. You can find her stuff in two different areas on the site. Under the US Artists and Partners section and under Pattern Packets. PineCraft is still active in the tole circuit and does the remaining shows left around the country. OKC being one that I know is still coming up that they will be at. They will even have available some of the stuff from the Vegas 2022 convention.

Also, for the foreseeable future www.christhorntondesigns.com will continue to operate, but will only be offering e-packets. So, that resource isn't going away just yet.

To those of you whose emails I have missed or gotten behind on, I do apologize and thank you for your patience.
