In these trying times it is important to appreciate the joys in life, which is why I am continuing to make sticks. Although I will still be making sticks, government restrictions may not allow me to consistently distribute them. So, if you order, I ask that you only do so if you are content waiting as the COVID-19 situation continues to unwind.
I always strive to get my sticks out as soon as possible, however the restrictions on non-essential businesses are changing every day. I respect these restrictions. If you purchase a stick, please know that I will still put the love and care into making if for you. Since I am investing my time in completing your order, I cannot accept returns or offer refunds, if shipping errors or delays occur.
My commitment has, and always will be, making quality sticks as efficiently and timely as possible. If government restrictions impede my ability to ship, please know, my first priority upon returning to normalcy, will be to send your stick and bring joy to you and your family. I appreciate you being a participating partner as we all move forward as a community.
Hand made by Justin Skaggs, Skaggs Woodworks, who is a non-indigenous stick-maker in Philadelphia, PA. This stick is not a medicine game stick and is not connected to the traditional Indigenous game. It is made in the likeness of sticks sticks developed in Scotland and England when the women's field game was being developed. All Skaggs Woodworks' sticks are made from Hickory trees cut in Northern Pennsylvania. Each stick is handcrafted over the course of many months.
This Stick is made to the specs of the women's sticks used in the 1970's and as late as the 1990's. The sticks used as inspiration are, Cranberry, Hattersly, and Patterson. I strung more of a modern pocket so that you feel comfortable using this stick.
As I was growing up on Pennsylvania I mostly saw women's woodies and didn't see a men's woodie until I left for college. The sport was still young in my region, and most of the woodies belonged to my friend's mothers who played in college.
Measuring 42 inches and featuring raw hide gut wall, this stick is ready to use out of the box. As noted in the name, this model is made for women's lacrosse. Women's sticks are thinner than men's sticks.
Since this is a handmade item, it requires a few days of processing time. If timing is crucial, I am always happy to work with you.
