Summer theatre is over and our performances were a great success. The kids did a wonderful job showing off the skills they learned thru out the summer of classes. To keep this rug hooking related, there were several children and grandchildren of rug hookers in the cast. Our violinist was Emily Shafer, granddaughter of Pat Shafer. The littlest angel in the photo below is Ellarie Owen, daughter of rug hooker and fellow blogger Deb Owen. And blogger/rug hooker Kathleen Salak's son Ryan was an important part of the cast as well. My own god daughter Alison White was another 'little' in the show. The rug hooking world was well represented!
We had a fun 1st Saturday hooking last Saturday. We had a good sized group and I am pleased to say that several more people are done or nearly done with their 'ladies' rugs from the April Pris Buttler class. We are planning to do our photo shoot of all the rugs on September 7, when we will have another 1st Saturday hooking day. Scott Avery, the theatre photographer that took these wonderful pictures will be there to take the pictures of our rugs, make sure they are appropriately pixelated and put on a disc for further use.
The rugs are absolutely beautiful and each one is entirely unique, even tho the 'lady' is the same. The stories they tell are heart warming. I will show more of them this week.
I am getting ready to head off for Sauder Village next week.
If any of you in the blogging world will be there, please say hello.
It will be my first trip to Sauder and I am looking forward to meeting people that I only know over the phone or by email. What fun it will be to put faces with the voices. Can't wait.
Meet Betty ~
