Vendor Biography

The Oregon Wood Worker® was created in 2002 to help meet the needs of knitters, spinners, yarn dyers, hand weavers and yarn enthusiasts and to make working with fiber easy and fun. We are the original designers and handcrafters of the table top swifts. Our swifts will operate on any flat or vertical surface. From one idea, we developed the full family of Handcrafted Yarn Swifts™: our smaller, the Mama Bear BASIC(tm); the regular sized and most often purchased, Mama Bear™ PLUS, Swift n Count with very accurate electronic counter to measure your yearn while swifting; the larger Papa Bear™; and the Custom Jumbo Papa Bear (24′ circumference skeins)  models. Each model is designed to meet the specific needs of our customers. We believe in continuous product improvement.  In 2010 we introduced the Swift N Count(tm) feature for each of our swifts, which measures yarn yardage to within one yard accuracy guaranteed.  The Mama Bear™ PLUS and Swift n Count are the most frequently purchased, as it will handle any yarn skein purchased from a yarn shop. Our swifts are very easy to assemble and disassemble, taking only 4-5 seconds for the non-mechanical person. There are only four pieces plus 5 pegs in the entire swift. All parts just slide together. No tools or bolts, etc., to deal with. Our swifts replace the umbrella swift, warping board and niddy noddy.  All of our swifts are made of beautiful selected solid hardwoods, sanded smooth multiple times and finished with several coats of a clear hard wood finish. We believe our swifts are the smoothest turning swifts due to the Unique Turning System™ each one is made with. Each of our Handcrafted Yarn Swifts™ comes with its own nice cotton/poly bag. We also offer beautiful Decorator Bags in different colors, as an upgrade for your swift bag, at a small additional charge. All of the swift bags are also made by our own experienced sewing staff.  We also offer beautiful Huggy Bear Ball/Cone Holders in three different models: Single, dual and triple.  A nice bag comes with each holder and the posts screw in or out as needed.  We also just introduced our FLOOR Model Yarn Swift which is made of solid hard rock maple and solid hickory. It come standard with our very accurate Swift n Count(tm) Yarn Measurer(tm); hand crank and High Use Upgrade. If your pegs wear out or you need longer ones, just e-mail us and we will send you some more without charge.
