Let’s Roll Some Slabs

Here I am standing outside of the North Star factory in Cheney, Washington about to go inside and buy my own slab roller!PotterybyfranSlabroller1

We got to see the factory in action as the workers were putting together products like my slab roller. It was cool to see a ‘local’ manufacturer of something you have used — sort of like getting to see you car built at the factory and then driving it home. Here I am getting a short demo from the manager while the guy in the background is completing the rest of my parts…well not my parts, the slab roller’s parts.

Ta Da! all finished and ready to load into the car… as soon as Norm pays for it.

Home again with a sample plate I made. The whole thing fits right beside the sewing machine on my quilting table.
