As our furniture is often purchased as a gift for someone near and dear, in December we will join 100 other Midwestern artists to show our work at an annual market in Iowa City. Sponsored by the U of I Fine Arts Council, the Holiday Thieves' Market is a seasonal art show and sale. We had a great response at the 2010 Iowa City Arts Fest and we are happy to rejoin this community for the early December weekend show. To find out more about this event click here.

The publication Radish is an healthy-living-themed magazine. In their November issue they featured "Present perfect: Local and artisan-made gifts." Here's what they had to say about us, "Handmade suspension rocking chairs from Macht Nicht in Marengo, Iowa, are a great gift for moms-to-be. In fact, St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids ordered more than 20 for its birth center. The chairs are made from native hardwoods, including walnut, oak, cherry, ash and hickory. The chairs may be built to size and cost from $725 to $800. A selection of chairs also is on display in the Macht Nicht showroom, 2566 Hwy. 6 Trail, Marengo IA. Hours are 8 a.m.-4 p.m. daily, but owner Rance Hilton suggests calling ahead before making a trip. (866) 762-5377 or www.iowarockers.com" For the full article click here.
We have always known that the comfort, gentle support and movement of our suspension rocking chair is a great gift for a new mom. St. Luke's knows this as well and has over 20 of our chairs in their Birthing Center. We are happy to offer the hospital our quality creation.
We enjoyed seeing you at, The Iowa State Fair!
We were there happily again this year, to celebrate for 11 days in August. We have enjoyed our set-up for the past 11 years and offer a view into the craftsmanship of our chairs, as well as a welcome seat to weary fair-goers. Some of which, apparently, were royalty.
Summer in Iowa City is a festive time. The creative expression begins in June, with the Iowa Arts Festival, and once again we were there to celebrate with the crowd. The Arts Fest is a favorite event for locals and out-of-towners, and features 125 local and national artists chosen through this juried Art Show. We were happy to be one of the artists to show their work on the walkways of the historic downtown.
