What a delightful time I had this weekend with the Wool Sisters in Alabama. Not only a talented group, but so much fun, we laughed a lot.
I taught different techniques using a small kit, then we spent the remainder of the time incorporating those techniques (and more) into their own rugs. I can honestly say I can't remember when I was surrounded by so much excitement and enthusiasm for what they were learning.
As their teacher, I too was energized creatively, not to mention gaining a couple of pounds from all the marvelous food. Thanks again ladies, for a great weekend!

One of the ladies shared these items from an estate sale where she purchased a box of wool, patterns and these photos of a Rug Retreat in Birmingham in 1961, along with the lady's journal from the weekend ~ what a find.

This is one talented group, with lots going on. I spent my day with a small group within the group teaching a workshop on using different techniques that they will be able to add their future rug hooking projects. Lots of show and tell, a great day!
