Just wanted to remind everyone that our Ontario Hooking Craft Guild Annual Rug show is being held this weekend at the Ambassador Hotel in Kingston, Ontario. This promises to be a wonderful event – hundreds of inspiring rugs on display, exciting schedule of classes with great teachers and YEAHHHHHH 20 Vendors!!!! So if you are anywhere near Kingston try not to miss this event – next year it will be much further away (Toronto!). Take advantage of this show to be inspired and to enhance your stash! I will be a vendor (although on Saturday my booth will be handled by a wonderful group of friends as I will be attending the wedding of my niece – hmmm I guess I should have asked her to change the date!!) and will have – wool (as is and dyed), patterns by Alana Kapell(who will be teaching), Karla Gerard, Briarwood Folkart, Woollen Memories, Sharon Smith, Margaret Shaw, Carol Feeney, Fully Wooly Primitives and a few of my own. I will have some beginner kits, some lovely big fat Hartman Hooks. But there will also be a lot of other wonderful vendors with wools, yarns, patterns, dyes, books etc.
The other day I mentioned I had been dyeing right from the package Cushings colours – 4 in particular – Aqua Green, Turquoise Green, Jade Green and Mint Green (oh and a little Chartreuse). The greens are listed on the Color Card beside each other and looked so lovely together that I thought I had to dye them all. So here they are over many different base colours and textures – don’t they look wonderful(well I have to admit there are a few others in there that I pulled off the shelf because they looked so good together!).
