Needed: Rags and Mixing Bowls!

A new voyageur canoe is taking shape in the Quapaw Canoe Company wood shop, and we need your help with bowls, plastic containers and your old rags. Please save for us anytime between now and June, 2016.

1) Needed: Plastic Yogurt/Cottage Cheese (or similar) Containers!

2) ALSO Needed: Rags! (For cleaning up epoxy resin. For wiping down canoes after sanding. For cleaning canoes before applying marine spar varnish). Anything cotton: Old dish towels, old towels, old shirts, whatever.

We are going into the wood shop in and will be building several voyageur canoes this winter. We need your 2 qt (or 32 oz) plastic yogurt containers! Cottage Cheese containers would work just as well. And also any other containers or bowls about that same size for mixing epoxy resin. Your old plastic or metal bowls. Smooth edges and rounded bottoms are best for the purpose. Clean them out and bring to us in downtown Clarksdale, or box and send to Quapaw Canoe Company, 291 Sunflower Avenue, Clarksdale, MS, 38614. It will take us 4-6 months to finish these canoes. Anytime between now and June is good. Save your smooth plastic containers for us until June. Thanks! Free Mississippi River Connects Us All Poster to anyone who brings us cleaned out yogurt containers!
