Cutoff Crafts' Crochet Treasures at the 23rd Annual Gold Prospecting & Treasure Show



With the 23rd Annual Gold Prospecting & Treasure Show opening March 12 & 13, 2022, we here at Cutoff Crafts have been handmaking treasures as fast as humanly possible. From epic chainmail bracelets and earrings (as seen in our last blog post) to crochet awesomeness, this show is going to be featuring tons of Cutoff Crafts Treasures!  In preparation of the 23rd Annual Gold Prospecting & Treasure Show I have been focusing on one of a kind creations and gold themed items that will make everyone feel like they are panning for crochet gold.

Some of our one of a kind items often involve our reversibles. While we have several reversible octopi, each octopus is unique due to yarn dyes, eye placement, and mouth placement.  One of the most recent reversibles I have made features a red sparkly yarn with a happy face and a light blue yarn with a sleep face. Sooo cute! 

Reversible Octopus is $35

Of course, nothing says unique like our one of a kind unicorns! These chibi unicorns are a special Cutoff Crafts pattern made by me (Ahsoka), Each is made with unique manes, colors, and horns.  I love finding fun yarns to make each unicorn. The unicorn below features a new pastel yarn variation that I adore.

Unicorn is $35

Since March 12 & 13 will be all about treasures and gold, I am preparing a few gold themed items! First, the very popular Bumblebees are coming back! Using a Cutoff Crafts exclusive pattern, I made these adorable little bumblebees featuring blue eyes, black stripes, and tiny wings. They truly are a treasure to be hold and they are almost as yellow as gold. 

Bumblebee $12

Continuing the gold theme, we will have several gold colored scrubbies at our booth. These scrubbies are made from 100% nylon. They won't take the finish off of cast-iron skillets, enamel, and teflon! Highly prized in the kitchen, these scrubbies are a must! And because they dry fast, they are mold resistant!  But don't limit their amazing attributes to the kitchen, they work anywhere in the house as well as on windows. They even make great body scrubbers! Buy different colors to designate what they are used for; for example: gold in the kitchen, green in the bathroom, and purple as a body scrubber.

Scrubbies: $5 each or 3 for $12

Along with our crochet work we will have fine jewelry, sterling silver earrings, and chainmail bracelets! Check out what we are bringing to the gold and treasure show here. We are so excited for this event and we hope to see everyone there!

23rd Annual Gold Prospecting & Treasure Show March 12 & 13


Get ready to do some prospecting at the NorthWest Gold Prospectors Association Gold Prospecting & Treasure Show March 12 & 13, 2022 in CDA at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds! This amazing family friendly event will host panning booths, craft booths, and seminars. Attendees can learn all about small scale mining, gold prospecting, and gold panning. There will be examples of mining equipment and metal detectors where visitors can talk to members about their equipment and experiences. Once loot is found, several inspirational booths will help treasure hunters get ideas on how to turn their loot into keepsakes. On top of all of this excitement there will also be craft booths featuring local artisans.

This is where Cutoff Crafts comes in. We will be hosting a booth at the 23rd Annual Gold Prospecting & Treasure Show!   Michelle and I are so excited to be a part of this amazing event! We even have some very special items that fit in with the precious metals and treasures theme.

Our booth will be displaying some amazing handmade pieces made of fine silver (.999). From dangle earrings to chainmail bracelets, the craftmanship is absolutely impressive. Michelle works her pieces one ring at a time in specific patterns to create true works of art. The fine silver bracelets are listed at $180 each and feature Sterling silver (.925) clasps.


The earrings are on nickel-free sterling silver (.925) hooks with drops of fine silver (.999) rings. Like the bracelet, the rings are opened and closed one at a time to make a perfect dangle of beauty. The fine silver earrings are $40 for the pair and match perfectly with the chainmail bracelets.


We will also be featuring copper chainmail bracelets and earrings. Each one is handcrafted by our expert jeweler, Michelle. The copper bracelets are $60 each and the earrings are $20 each.


Along with the fine silver and copper items, we will also be featuring one set of Mercury Dime earrings. These dimes fit perfectly inside a sterling silver bail, which allows the dimes to be displayed without damaging the coin. One lucky customer will be able to purchase this set for $60.


Our treasures don't end there. We will have semi-precious stone jewelry featuring carnelian, jasper, amethyst, lapis lazuli, and so much more! Michelle will also have gorgeous necklaces created from antique beads. These necklaces are a wonderful way to take a piece of history home with you.

We are excited to offer a brand new item in our line-up, carved buffalo horn whistles! These working whistles will be available as both intriguing necklaces and entertaining keychains. 
We look forward to seeing you at this fantastic event. Be sure to stop by the Cutoff Crafts booth and check out all of our items, from crochet toys to fine silver jewelry, we have the coolest items to shop!
