Today is already the 9th of June. Since the last posting, I have been to Ripley, West Virginia for the 45th Cedar Lakes Rug Camp run by the Blairs of Tomorrow’s Heirlooms for a full week of teaching, home for a few days and most recently off to Vermont to the 29th Green Mountain Hooked Rug School at Vermont Technical College in East Randolph, Vermont. This school is conducted by Stephanie Ashworth-Krauss assisted by her daughters and staff.
To catch up, the week at Cedar Lakes I taught Fraktur Design to 14 talented people, all of whom their own rug pattern by lunch on the first day. The templates and books along with my encouragement with ideas help anyone, even those who say they can’t draw a straight line. Truthfully, those are the people who I am most proud of when we see their results.
This great bird detail is from Susan Latham’s rug, her third hooked project.
