What Are These Ladies Gathered For???
Left to right, Beth Miller (owner, Parris House Wool Works), Judy Labbe, Sharon Warren, Wendy Baird, Connie Fletcher (owner, Seven Gables Rug Hooking), Ellen Marshall (owner, Two Cats & Dog Rug Hooking), Libby Armstrong, Cathy Newell, and Edna Olmstead. (Missing from photo, Kim DuBay, owner of Primitive Pastimes, and Sandy Warren).We had a fine time in the Maine studio yesterday! Connie Fletcher of Seven Gables Rug Hooking visited us again. She's been with us quite a bit this past fall working on a very special project that is completely her brainchild, called "Me, Myself, & I." This project took the form of a very informative class on more advanced rug hooking techniques, and the result is a collection of absolutely amazing self portraits hooked by the ladies you see above (and the two that you don't see). Connie will be setting up a beautiful exhibit of these pieces at the 3rd Annual Paris Hill Hook In on November 7th. If you are in attendance, you will have the opportunity to view it. If not, we will plan other ways to share it with the hooking community. Want to join these ladies plus quite a few more every week for hooking fun and festivity? Come to our open hooking every Tuesday at the Maine studio from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Coffee, tea, and goodies are provided in the morning, bring your own lunch and stay in to the afternoon! Our group is like a good family - always welcoming, always supportive. Join us! Happy hooking! - Beth
