PIX FROM INTERNATIONAL RUGHOOKING DAY…

First I would like to share Toni’s beautiful coasters (which could be ornies as well) and how she finishes them. Toni starts by visiting the local bars and discreetly sliding those cardboard coasters into her pockets! (well maybe she doesn’t visit allllll the bars! 🙂 )Then she traces the outer shape onto her backing. Next… “I cut the backing to about 1/2 “ excess then  lightly glue the coaster to the inside, then glue very close to edge of coaster, bring backing up over the edge and hold down until it stays. (messy). Let it dry,  then cut a wool circle a bit bigger than the coaster, glue it to the back of the coaster again gluing very close to edge and a bit in the center and hold down. When dry trim the wool as close as you can to the finished edge.” Brilliant way of making lovely perfectly round coasters/ornies!

and now for some pix from our International Rughooking Day in Williamstown. We had great attendance and great vendors and delicious food. Our thanks to the ladies who hosted this fun day…

Mitch from Millinery at Cornerstone Farm with  his beautiful yarns and knitted items…
These ladies had beautiful wooden pieces for sale – you can see some of their tree collections on many of the tables – they sold out by noon and had to go and get more at the shop!  You can see more of their work at:

  2. Such a wonderful day! Thanks to our hosts for all their hard work to make the day successful and to the vendors for bringing “ must haves” to share with us. Also, to Gord for the great pictures. It’s always an inspiration to see what all these talented ladies are working on. Always terrific to visit with you Loretta and pick up the “ next” project. Merry Christmas to all!!

  3. Thank you for sharing these photos! What beautiful rugs! I am curious to know if a pattern if available for one of them. After the pictures of the coasters, it is the 19th one down, right after the purse with the bird on it. A woman with white hair and glasses wearing a black top and white pants is holding it. It is an abstract design. It is so beautiful! Andrea Allen

  8. Hi Loretta Dawna and I are doing a write up for Leslie Larsen for the OHCG magazine from BHCG Guild on our day in Williamstown. Would I be able to use some of the pictures below? Mine didn’t turn out as well. I would say pictures courtesy of Loretta Moore in the article. Hope all is well Candace Fradette
