SAUDER WAS WONDERFUL!!!

Took us 11 hours – many pit stops en route but no stopping to go junkin ALTHOUGH we did pass an antique store that looked pretty promising. But we were on a mission so NOOOO junkin!!!!

The venue for the show is lovely – a small, heritage museum with many different artisans including a broom maker, spinner, weaver, tinsmith, blacksmith etc. housed in 1800’s buildings moved to the site. The rug show was fabulous and I took lots of pix and over the next few days will try to post them all (before I leave for TWIST). As much as I could I tried to include in the picture who the piece was hooked and designed by but sometimes it just did not work. I really don’t know who most of the designers or hookers are so bear with me…

This design is by Nola Heidebreider(boy I hope I spelled that right Nola)…

  1. The Grenfell rugs are lovely. They are very much like the rugs on display at the Grenfell museum in St. Anthony. The Inuit motifs are simple but oh so beautiful.

    Hi Loretta,

    Thank you for your wonderful blog. I save them and look at them often when I have time.

    When you have a minute would you please let me know what cut was used for the rugs Part of Azer. I find them quite wonderful and and quite detailed and I am curious as to the size cut of the wool. Do they use wool (yarn)?

    Thanks
