Off I go today with Deb Smith for the always-exciting Rug Hooking Week at Sauder Village in Archbold, Ohio. The van is loaded with everything needed for the Rug Hooking Magazine booth, plus our bags, rugs, frames, wool - well, you get the idea.
During this week, I’ll try to post some photos from Sauder Village on my Crow’s Foot Farm Designs LLC Facebook page. I’ll be taking a two-day workshop with Meryl Cook, called Hook a Healing Mat. And I’m excited to take Nancy Parcels’ evening class making a brooch. Nancy is very talented making wearable art, so that will be fun!
I’m looking forward to seeing the Maud Lewis exhibit of rug adaptations of her painting AND some of her original art, as well.
Before hitting the road, a group of Magdalena Rug Hookers hung our rug show titled, Modern Magdalena, at the Landis House in Newport PA. Our group did angel rugs and there are a variety of interpretations on that theme plus other rugs with different subject matter.
The opening reception was this past Friday and we had a nice turnout of community members. For those of you who live locally, the hours of the Landis House are Wednesday and Friday 1pm – 5pm and also the first Saturday of the month 1pm – 4pm. The show will be up through November 3rd.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in this week of rug hooking fun.
