From the editor:

Dear Wooden Bow Tiers and Friends,

Dear Wooden Bow Tiers,

Wooden Bow Tie With a media converting news to soap opera in 1998, a stock market bouncing like a Yo-yo, and the world press at the scene of a gruesome, inhuman war in which we actually find ourselves involved - there’s a certain sense of security in the attitude that Wooden Bow Tiers constitute a solid front facing the machinations of each day. And that should be reason enough for wearing our ties in this the last year prior to the next Millennium.!

Wooden Bow Tie The business section of the Hartford Courant Nov 5th ’98 provided a very nice story about wooden bow ties, wearers and creation. There were a few more special bits of PR at year end. For New Year starters, Faith Middleton interviewed yours truly on Connecticut Public Radio in February ‘99. It was a good opportunity for a dialogue on wooden bow ties. The event began with Faith running to a mirror to check out which of the ten ties I brought with me would be hers. She chose a checkerboard pattern of quarter inch squares in maple and mahogany.  We’re proud to welcome Faith to the ranks. And, when Attorney General Richard Blumenthal spoke to the Kiwanis Club of Meriden on April 22nd he
shamelessly promoted us and his three wooden bow ties.

Wooden Bow Tie Now, our web site has the sophistication of Secured Transactions. According to statistics reported on the net, having a secured transaction site makes a big difference in Internet sales. We have brought over 12,000 visitors to our web site since it’s beginning in 1997. That’s a huge number of hits. Fortunately not every hit translates into a sale. And, it is just as well, after all how many ties can one man produce? Even when working ones fingers to the bone.

Wooden Bow Tie There are a few fun bow tie web sites that you might like to check out.  They are: - Kruzlifix’s Hompage, Basel, Switzerland. - from "Valencia Spain".


Wooden Bow Tie We’ve had opportunity’s to show wood bow ties at The Connecticut Store in Waterbury CT., and in a Designer Show House in Hartford sponsored by the Junior League of Hartford. The house had belonged to Beatrice Fox Auerbach owner of the famous G. Fox department store. Also, in conjunction with other members of the exciting new organization "Made In Connecticut Guild," we will exhibit and sell our creations at the Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard CT. It’s a CT State Labor Dept. training session lasting five days for between 600 and 800 individuals from all over New England.

Wooden Bow Tie  The Made In Connecticut Guild has as its mission the joint exhibition of member products, and the placing of the slogan "Made In Connecticut" on the lips of people across the country. We are attempting to give Vermont Made a run for its money. If this subject interests you please write and I will forward more information.

Wooden Bow Tie  Specialty tie requests during the past few months were fairly brisk. There were ebony formal ties, Mason, Elks, Kiwanis, Y’s men, MIC Guild, Foxwoods, a pair of squash rackets, skis, a book shelf with books, A’Okay hands, a new ukulele tie and others that I forgot to photograph.

Wooden Bow Tie  Wooden Bow Tiers take charge of their attitude. They don’t let someone else choose it for them. We live life as an exclamation, not an
explanation! Wear your ties!

Have a Happy Healthy Spring,
All our very best wishes.
