It was a perfect day for a rug Hook-In, in our beautiful capital city of Fredericton, New Brunswick. The large room was filled with happy rug hookers from the surrounding areas of N.B. and there was a buzzing sound of conversation and laughter as everyone was happy to share with their friends around their tables.
There were lots and lots of great prizes, big baskets overfilled to capacity with tempting goodies, a silent auction, muffins, and refreshments, take-out pizza and salad, and even a big cake. Krista had a vending room choke-full of wool and other supplies upstairs which I had planned to visit but decided to visit her at home later since I found out she lives only a few minutes from my home. It's a small world... What was so great about this hook-in, was that it was so close to home. No need to pack anything for overnight.
Kimm was very helpful and made me feel very welcome. I'm now a member of the Heritage Rug Hooking Guild and look forward to meeting with them in September.
Rugs were put on display but about an hour before the hook-in was supposed to close, I decided to take some pictures of the display. Not a good idea because no sooner had I started to take pictures than they announced for members to remove their rugs off the display as some of the rug hookers were leaving early and they didn't want them to forget their rugs behind. I'll take pictures earlier next time...
I was scrambling to take as many pictures as I could but didn't get them all, and some of my pictures are not great but the rugs were all beautiful.
Please forgive me if I misspelled the names as sometimes it was difficult to read the script.
