Here is a copy of the postcard with all the info regarding the Colonial Festival held by James Creek Galleries.........located in Volant, PA...not far from the Ohio border....Hope you can come and check it out...
There has been a lot going on, but I'm back. On May .... I had a beginner hooking class with a terrific help from my friend Karen. We had six lovely ladies with a desire to learn how to hook. I have posted two pics below. One of our students turned out to be our friend Carmen, who already knows how to hook but just signed up for fun. It was really nice seeing her again.
We had a lovely lunch provided for us by the James Creek Galleries ladies, Jan and Clair. Thanks so much! Here is a picture of what our students were working on. I gave our Lazy Days design a make over. I added a wing to the crow and rounded the petals on the flower.
Also on June 25, 2011 we will be participating in James Creek Gallerie's 4th Annual Colonial Festival. We will be under a tent behind the shop. It would be so nice to meet some fellow hookers. You can find more info on the James Creek Gallerie website.
I learned rug hooking in 1999 and taught my two daughters Lisa and Missy. We Three Rug Hooking was born. I really enjoyed working with my girls. That came to an end on the evening of March 4,2005 when Missy went into premature labor and after an emergency C-section gave birth to little Brady. At 2 lbs 13 oz Brady had a rough time. He spent 4-1/2 months in various hospitals. He underwent 4 surgeries on his little head, struggled with bad lungs, had meningitis and pneumonia. It was a very hard time. Brady's doctors believed he would have developmental problems and lung problems, but our God had different plans for Brady. At age 4 he is a perfect "little" dynamo, as active as any 4-year-old. About that same time Missy found out that her husband, Lane, had a recurrence of his malignant brain tumor. In September of 2008 Lane lost his brave battle and went home to be with the Lord. As for Lisa, she stayed with the business until about 2006 when she divorced and with two daughters had to also get a "real job." She is now happily remarried and working part time. She helps me with my rug binding chores. I also do medical transcription at home part time.
