I'm not going to post all the pic's of rugs today. It would take up too much space and I'm really tired. It's been a long day. I did get just a couple shots of the room. Linda and I sat with Joanne and Nettie. Hey Joanne! Was great to see you, and Nettie, it was very nice meeting you. It looked like these two had a great time! The girls from East Berlin had a table right next to ours. That was really nice. Becky couldn't make it. I even brought her some Butterfingers cause I know she likes them. I had a basket of chocolates on my table. Missed you Becky!!
You can see that the place was quite full. I did get some hooking done too. Didn't snap a picture of that yet. Haven't unpacked my bag, but will do that tomorrow. They had some really nice door prizes. My table didn't win anything, but the girls from East Berlin won. Tanya won 2 times and Louise one once. Nice to see your friends receive!
The Rug Hook Project of Las Rancheritas was there. I have a little section of the flyer we received and it's best if I just tell you what it says. "The Rug Hook Project of Las Rancheritas in the villiage of Agustin Gonzales, located in the central highlands near San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Las Rancheritas is a group of women using rug hooking to create folk art that reflects life that surrounds them: burros, rabbits chickens, mountains, homes, churches. Each piece is unique, and all proceeds from the sale of rugs goes to the individual artists. Many of the women are the sole support of their families." The rugs were for sale at the hook-in and they were asking for a donation of a small piece of wool as part of admission to be sent to the women of Las Rancheritas. I'm not sure if any rugs were sold. I sure hope so. But I do know that they received a LOT of wool for donation from the hookers that came today. That was very nice to see. Here is a shot of the rugs that these women made.
I'm going to finish up here tonight with just a few of the rugs that I was able to get pic's of that were in the rug show. They were all winners in my opinion. Very hard to pick just one.
I wish I could tell you who hooked these pic's. Not sure if when you click on them you'll be able to see the name, but it's worth a shot if you are interested. I do know that my friend Joanne hooked the Lion rug. Great job Joanne!
