I have finished three rugs in the past four weeks, this is good.
Class at the Wadsworth Library last night went well with 17 in attendance. Many have already started their samplers. We worked on letter techniques last night so everyone making them is well on their way.
is fast approaching. June 23, 2012 at the Kingwood Center, Mansfield, OH
10am-4pm. This is a free hook in and rug show. Our challenge theme this year is Autumn. Those that picked up a wool goody bag last year at the show to incorporate into their fall themed rug will vie for the gift basket valued over $100. Attendees place their votes.
Please bring all your rugs you have completed this year for the rug show whatever the content (does not need to be fall theme-any theme will be great).
Silent Auction- this is a great way to get rid of those half started or unstarted patterns you will never finish, wool you don't need, abundance of noodle bags, old frames, anything hooking related that you don't want anymore. By donating it to the silent auction proceeds will go to Kingwood Center this year to help maintain their beautiful gardens. They allow us to have our show here at their facility at no charge except for the parking ($5/carload-so pile in).
It is also a good idea to bring a cart to haul your rug hooking supplies in to to building from the parking lot. Don't forget their plant sale in the greenhouse in the courtyard. They love it when the hookers come and buy lots of their flowers!
Great vendors too... Tomorrow's Heirlooms from Michigan, Wool Nuts, Lauren Fugua Stamped Jewelery, Lana Omlor,Larry Ault, Roche River,and Alice Fraizer.
LKSD.....that's Lakeside, OH
Our third annual retreat will be in October 12-14, 2012
There are only 6 openings left so if you are interested please contact me and I will send you a brochure. This year we are staying in a larger cottage and Jacquie has so kindly offered her home as well. So there are enough spots for 18 total.
Our class pattern is from Loop de loo called "Nightingale". Laurie and I will be teaching you how to incorporate some wide cut shading along with textures and outline/fill to spruce up a typical primitive piece in an antique color palate.
This is also the weekend for the Lighthouse Festival which adds some fun. Cost for this weekend retreat is minimal and Way fun so email me for a brochure or call. firstname.lastname@example.org 419-685-4490
