You can find us in the April 22nd edition of Hoopla in their "Made in Iowa" section. Here is what they had to say, " Rance Hilton isn't your average craftsman. He's best known for his Iowa Rockers-hand crafted suspension rockers made from native Iowa woods that he actually steams and bends himself into patterns he has designed. Take a seat in one of his treasured creations and we think you'll agree he is one artisan that rocks." To see the full interview click Made in Iowa: Iowa Rocker.

We had the opportunity to host 80 folks in March as they went on a "Made in Iowa" adventure. Hills Bank and Star Destination tours had the chance to test out our customized rockers made from native woods in Iowa which include: oak, walnut, cherry, hickory, ash and sycamore in the showroom, see a demonstration on how our wood is steamed and bent and talk with the original owner, Doc Fettkether who showed our "tools of the trade" which included a 1910 band saw, 1920's mortise machine and overhead router. It was an afternoon enjoyed by all!
