Rug Show from the Atha Biennial

I'm not going to say much in this post, other than it was  a great day spent with Joanne and Linda at the Atha Biennial in Lancaster Pa.  If you are ever have a chance to go to one, please do. It's a wonderful way to see some beautiful rugs, and be inspired. Lots of vendors too, and I found some wool that was happy to come home with me :).  

How fun it was to see so many familiar faces again of fellow rug hookers. I also was able to meet a designer of a rug I did a while back called Nightngale. It was designed by Katherine Porter of LoopDeLoo Designs. Also Maria Barton who was teaching that day. She is a member of the AAPG group on line, and other blogging friends :).  Just a great day! 
I'm sharing about half of the pictures today and the other half will be tomorrow.   Enjoy!

Inspired yet??  Tune in tomorrow for the rest!

Absolutely loverly! I think I just might pick up the hook this weekend! The Magdelina Briner rugs look like she hooked them herself! Amazing stuff!

Talk about serendipity! Your blog features a few of the rugs hooked by Goat Hill ATHA members! And since I woefully forgot my camera (need to spike my Geritol), how wonderful is this! Gave your blog a plug on our guild's website.

Thanks and it was nice seeing you.
