I'm on the road today as I travel to Archbold, Ohio for one of my favorite events of the year. I look forward to this week all year long. If you’ve never gone to Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week, put it on your bucket list or better yet, find your way there this week [August 15 - 19].
This is the biggest and best rug hooking show. Last year there were more than 700 rugs on display. With many retreats and workshops for rug hookers of all levels of experience., the sense of excitement and camaraderie is palpable.
As we have done for several years now, Nancy Parcels and I will be volunteering our spare time with Deb Smith at the Rug Hooking Magazine booth. It’s such a fun way to see old rug hooking friends and make new ones.
I will be taking Nancy Parcels’ dye demonstration on Thursday and a workshop with Capri Jones on Saturday. The rest of my time will be at the booth, or looking, mingling, and shopping. Oh yes, there’s always time for shopping!
Please stop by and say hello. I’ll be wearing one of my Rug Hooker name tags made by the talented husband of Janine Broscious. If you don’t have one of these colorful name tags yet, you can order one here or I’m pretty sure Janine and her hubby will be at Sauder Village with their 3-D printer.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the company of enthusiastic rug hookers.
