Each week I am going to feature one of the booths in our shop. I’ve asked each one of them to write up something about their booth and themselves I will post it along with this picture so you can the items that they make. This way everyone can see the things that Trisa’s Quilting Corner offers. We are located @ 109 S. Oak St here in Villa Grove.

Our 1st booth has been with me here at the shop from the beginning. This is what John Warriner would like you to know about him and his booth.

Retired from a lifelong career in agriculture my second love has been woodworking. Having done remodeling, furniture building and other custom woodworking. I now have the time to pursue woodturning and other forms of fine woodworking. I started turning simple pens from wood about six years ago. Since then I have added a number of items including pizza cutters, coffee measures, seam rippers, and materials such as acrylics and acrylesters. I am currently working on improving my bowl turning skills. I also build houses with Habitat for Humanity two days a week, do some handyman work, and plan on doing more furniture building in the future. Born on a farm near Morris, married to my wife Peg for 47 years, I have since lived and worked in several places in Western and Northern Illinois. We have lived in Villa Grove for 29 years and our 3 daughters and their families all live in Tolono.
