Celebration book giveaway.

As I get organized and back to hooking in my studio, I decided to do a book giveaway. I know you all love these as much as I do!

The book is Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs 28 [© 2018 Ampry Publishing LLC and presented by Rug Hooking Magazine]. This is the annual publication of the best rugs entered and chosen to be in Celebration. The variety of rugs is amazing and the talent is breath-taking.

Many of these rugs were on display at Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week. I was there as a volunteer for Rug Hooking Magazine, so I had the fun of hanging the Celebration display. Up close and personal was a great place to be!

Not all rugs chosen as finalists were at Sauder Village, so this book is filled with even more beautiful rugs. It’s always the annual best of the best and a great book to have as inspiration for rug hookers everywhere.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in a collection of beautiful hooked rugs.

Celebrating Celebration.

Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week is over for another year.  I hope you were fortunate enough to be there, but if not, put it on your bucket list.  I spent the week volunteering at the Rug Hooking Magazine booth with Deb Smith, editor, and fellow volunteer, Nancy Parcels.  It is such a great week filled with all things rug hooking.

While there, I went to Nancy Parcels’ dyeing demonstration on Thursday.  Nancy demonstrated about five different ways to dye wool with and without dye.  It was an inspirational workshop.  Nancy and I also took a workshop on Saturday taught by Capri Boyle Jones.  It was called, Small Works of Art.  Fun class!

The focus of the week, besides all of the retreats and workshops, is the incredible rug exhibit.  At the center of the exhibit is the collection of this year’s winning rugs that are now published in Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs 27 [© 2017 Ampry Publishing LLC and presented by Rug Hooking].  I am delighted to have a copy of this book to give away!

Here’s how to have a chance to win this book:
