If you want to have a day of laughter and fun, just go to a hook-in. It was a blast, just like the last two I attended. Each one has its own specialness about it. I have more photos but these will suffice for today. I just wanted to show you a bit of the organization that goes to put on a hook-in. Of course, there is a lot of preplanning that goes on, I thought that I better get my act together and post about our last hook-in.
Kimm already posted some photos on her blog and won the race, lol... I charged my phone and uploaded some photos.
So sorry, I didn't have time to crop the photos. For some reason, my first photo didn't upload onto my computer. It was the same one that Kimm showed on her blog. The two ladies at the registration table, one with a red hat.
Our theme color was red and the host members were asked to wear red if possible.
A big cake to celebrate 40 years of Heritage Rug Hooking Guild. I'm a newbie as I just joined the guild last year but I already fit in nicely and feel welcomed.
Members were asked to donate items to fill baskets to raise money to defray the expenses of having a hook-in. Tickets were drawn in one-hour intervals. On the first draw, I was off three numbers, and on the second draw, I was off two numbers.
Winners were allowed to choose the basket they wanted. Kimm won, one of the baskets that our group Evening Matter donated and she unselfishly donated it back, so that someone else had a chance at winning. Each basket had a nice bottle of wine and so many hooker-friendly items.
