We are having the return of winter here in south central PA! Yuck!!! It's cool, windy and cloudy. I didn't want to get out that heavier coat again! Good day to stay inside by the woodstove and do some hooking.
The hookin at Grant Street Woolworks was a good time as usual. Even though the weather was very nice, lots of people opted to be inside working on their rugs. Joanne made the long trip from eastern PA to be with us. She brought many small mats to finish the edges on. Here are just a few.
Aren't the redware eggs nice?
Linda started by working on her magnolia pillow top. The shading was getting frustrating because you have to use so many short pieces to get it right.
Horay, Joan! You did an amazing job!
More happy news!
Linda just received a new shipment of the latest Rebecca Erb wools. They are very nice!!! All washed and ready to hook! You have to see and feel them to get the full effect! She will be cutting them into quarters in the next few days. Stop by to get the best selection.
Don't forget that in June, Doris Aymar is going to be teaching a class on the sculpting technique for rughookers. This adds a lovely three dimensional effect to your rugs. Her class will include the materials to do a beautiful sculpted strawberry piece. The berries and leaves look like velvet! Don't miss this opportunity to learn from an expert!!! Call Linda at Grant Street Woolworks for the exact date and to reserve your space in this class. 717 860-4628
Hope to see you there, if not before.
