On Monday, Wendy and I attended a meeting at a lovely Inn in Prescott as we are involved with planning the OHCG (Ontario Hooking Craft Guild) 2013 Annual. The theme is “Reunite, Recreate, Rejuvenate” and needless to say Wendy and I are thrilled to be part of the committee in charge of decorating – so hmmmm knowing me and my addictions what do you think will be involved!!!!! We have ideas bouncing around like jumping beans! This is such fun and the 2013 Annual promises to be unique and exciting!
Don’t know if everyone knows about the OHCG Annual show coming up in North Bay Ontario the last weekend in May – this is a wonderful event -tons of rugs on display and great vendors and a lot of fun!!!! Check out the website for the OHCG to see how to register and attend…http://www.ohcg.org/show.html
I did not realise that some people who happen onto the blog or subscribe are not aware that my Upcoming Events column lists the various shows and classes I will be involved in. If you click on the events column you will see the list of events i.e. I will be a vendor at a couple of local hookins i.e. Karen Kaiser’s, the Olde Forge, the Moira Matters, Georgetown Trunk show. Plus I have classes coming up here at the studio and at various other locations in finishing, dyeing, beginner hooking, mittens, hooking for the holidays, adding texture etc. So if you have not already done so – click on Events to see what is coming up.
This morning France sent me pix of a rug that Trish is hooking. Trish took a beginner class from me about 1 1/2 years ago and designed her first piece based on a character that her daughter had invented. The rug became a chairpad and was wonderful. As her second piece Trish decided to do a big floor mat – geometric – based on a mathematical design suggested by that same daughter – Karen. This piece is very challenging but is coming along beautifully. I drew it out (took hmm a few hours because everything had to be exactly drawn and measured with all the lines across and up and down and DIAGONALLY spaced and interesecting correctly) and it needs to be hooked in such a way that the diagonal sections to not go wonky and that all the points remain points. I think Trish is doing an amazing job on her SECOND rug:
