Early American Life Directory 2012

  It has been a few years since the subject of hooked work I was creating warranted submission to Early American Life Directory of Traditional American Crafts. The requirements include the highest standards of period design, materials, and techniques along with documentation for all these fitting the Colonial period of America.  Well this year I was ready and the jurors thought so too.  I am honored to be included with several other rughooking artists representing our craft at this highly judged level.  A press release published in Hampshire Review details the criteria and jurors.

Friedrich Bandel’s Potted Tree, design Susan L. Feller

 The Shenandoah Valley exhibit last winter inspired motifs and compositions by “new” fraktur artists, along with the documentation in a catalog produced by the Rockingham Historical Society of Dayton, VA. 

This image is a design, inspired by the pen and watercolors of the artist working between 1800-1820 in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
