Almost 2 years ago I was invited (along with good friend Lesli Ann Zanetti) to exhibit my rugs at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in Almonte Ontario. I was not sure WHY I had been asked but of course I replied – SURE!!! Well, the time has come more quickly than I ever thought and here we are in February and I am dropping off my rugs in a few weeks. Still not sure WHY I was chosen but it will be fun and an honour to have my rugs on display at such a wonderful venue. So our joint exhibit will take place from March 3, 2015 to April 11, 2015. The Vernissage takes place Saturday, March 7 from 2 – 4. Both Lesli and I will be there that day for the meet and greet and to talk with people about our passion for rughooking. We will also be demonstrating and teaching a beginner class. So if you are in the area please drop in – gosh how embarrassing it would be if just Lesli and I showed up :-(.
I would also like to mention that our Rideau Valley Boots and Baskets rughooking branch will be celebrating its 35th anniversary this year and will be holding an open hookin so book your spot! We have a lottttt of room! Details are as follows:
