    2012 NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA HOME & GARDEN SHOW

    on

    S

    ure, January in Northeastern

    Pennsylvania can be chilling, gray

    and dreary. What better time for a

    Home & Garden show?

    They do it at a perfect time of year,

    when people are tired of the cold and look-

    ing forward to spring. Theyre looking for

    ways to improve their life and their life-

    styles, said Ed Pitcavage of Endless

    Mountains Solar Services inWilkes-Barre.

    Pitcavage will be one of

    manyexhibitors at the11th an-

    nual Northeastern Pennsylva-

    niaHome&Garden Show, set

    for Friday through Sunday at

    the Mohegan Sun Arena in

    Wilkes-Barre Township,

    where he hopes to educate

    homeowners about the bene-

    fits of solar panels.

    A firm believer in the envi-

    ronmentally friendly panels,

    he has installed a solar farm

    atop his headquarters on Kid-

    der Street, enough to meet all

    the electrical needs of the

    10,000-square-foot building

    below.

    Heres thebeautyof todays

    technology, Pitcavage said.

    In the Jimmy Carter days,

    they depended on direct sun-

    light. Now we use UV (ultra-

    violet) rays. Just like when

    youre at the beachon a cloudy

    day, youd better put sun-

    screen on or youll get a burn

    because of those rays. Well, it

    Show is perfect way to begin prep for warm weather

    could be a cloudy day, snow coming

    down, and there are still UV rays.

    Thats one of the biggest advan-

    tages, he said. Whether youre

    home or not, whether youre on va-

    cation, (your solar panels are) pro-

    ducing energy. You can zero out

    your electric bill andendupwith the

    electric company actually paying

    you for electricity.

    Another business making use of

    solar technology is Northeast Flag-

    pole Co. of Schuylerville, N.Y.,

    where owner Sheri Fane recom-

    mends a Titan Solar Display Light

    to people who want to observe flag

    etiquette without taking the Stars

    and Stripes down before sunset.

    This light sits on top of the flag-

    pole and illuminates the flag at

    night, saidFane,who is looking for-

    ward to a return visit to theHome&

    Garden Show. Its solar panels are

    charging throughout the day, into

    rechargeable AA batteries.

    Her company sells telescoping

    flagpoles and a variety of flags,

    mostly to residential customers.

    Our flagpole kit comes with an

    American flag and a double-flag har-

    ness so you can add a second flag,

    she said, explaining that military

    flags, support-the-troops flags, holi-

    day flags and sports flags are pop-

    ular options.

    The possibility of adding a flag to

    Heres the beauty of todays technology. In the Jimmy Carter days, they depended on direct sunlight.

    Now we use UV rays. It could be a cloudy day, snow coming down, and there are still UV rays.

    o longtime quilter Pat-

    ti Hozempa of Tunk-

    hannock, personaliz-

    ing a quilt means more than

    giving a floral design to a gar-

    dener or stitching a woodland

    scene on an outdoorsmans

    sturdy bed covering.

    I make memory quilts and me-

    morial quilts from peoples cloth-

    ing, she saidona recentwinter af-

    ternoon. Imworkingononeright

    now from all Dale Earnhardt T-

    shirts.

    The T-shirt quilt will be a novel

    gift for a NASCAR fan, said Ho-

    zempa,whohasenjoyedrepresent-

    ingherbusiness,P.A.Designs Inc.,

    at the Home & Garden Show for

    the past few years.

    Other projects she has quilted

    create artwork from the clothing a

    child has outgrown or that a per-

    son of any age wore before he or

    she died.

    After a Scranton firefighter was

    killed in the line of duty in 2008,

    Hozempa said, she used his cloth-

    ing tomakememorialquilts forhis

    family members. I made one for

    his son,one forhiswife andone for

    his mother.

    In another example, she said,

    Thereare threesisters fromPhila-

    delphia, their dadwas an assistant

    chief of police. We did his uniform

    and ties in quilts for all three.

    The we in the equation is Ho-

    zempa and her husband, Adam,

    who happen to be the P and A of

    P.A. Designs. It doesnt stand for

    Pennsylvania, she said. Its for

    Patti and Adam.

    The memory quilts are the

    most important part of what she

    After a Scranton firefighter

    was killed in the line of duty in

    2008, Patti Hozempa said, she

    used his clothing to make

    memorial quilts for his family.

    does, said Hozempa, who has

    been sewing since she was 12

    years old.

    But P.A. Designs also makes

    customized quilts, wall hangings

    and table runners that are not

    quite so personal just in the col-

    ors, fabrics and fit the customer

    specifies.

    This summer, I sent my first

    custom quilt to Germany, the

    quilter said. This couplewas vis-

    iting here, from Germany. She

    didnt speak much English. He

    did. They wanted something

    American-made to take home.

    They picked the color and the

    fabric, and we made them a quilt

    to fit their king-size bed.

    Everything had to be in me-

    ters, she added.

    During the Home & Garden

    Show, Hozempa said, shell have

    a little craft for children. It wont

    involve actual stitching, which

    might be too difficult for younger

    children to pick up quickly. It will

    be kind of like a puzzle they can

    take home. They get a little les-

    son, along with Mom and Dad.

    Tim and Carol McDermott can see how five

    years of planning have given them what he calls

    exactly what we want.

    Ken Moeslein, president of a remodeling firm

    that has done much of the work, says there is a

    good reason for that success. It is because they are

    great examples of mapping out a project.

    As the new year begins, homeown-

    ers are putting together their to-do

    lists ofmatters that need addressing.

    Or at least they should be, says

    Moeslein from Dormonts Legacy

    Remodeling.

    Most people do not put enough

    time in the planning process. he

    says. These things do not happen

    overnight.

    Tim McDermott says he and his

    wife started talking about the need

    for a large addition to their Shaler

    home when they decided they need-

    ed more space but didnt want to

    move.

    When you live in a house you be-

    gin to realize what it needs, he says

    of the thinking process that led to a

    job that began in July. Because they

    had it planned in their heads, they

    were able to deal with work that still

    Planning of three to four months is recom-

    mended for kitchen updates.

    Planning for the unexpected can help with

    budgeting expenses.

    A typical roof installation takes only a few

    days, but planning takes much longer.

    That element of time barges its way in-

    to every project and is a major planning

    issue.

    Mark Uchida, owner of A reMARKable

    Kitchen in Aspinwall, for instance, says

    the process of designing a kitchen takes

    three to four months. That time estimate

    does not account for the installation.

    Decks might only take a week to in-

    stall, but there are other aspects to the

    project that make the whole job longer,

    says David Dickson from Carnegies

    Quaker State Construction.

    Most people want their decks for

    spring and summer, he says. You cant

    wait until then.

    Mercer County architect Jim Cardillo

    agrees. It is never too early to start plan-
