Sauder Rug Show - 2011

Because life happens I'm a little late getting my photos of the Sauder Rug Show on the blog.  Many of you have probably already seen photos of this year's fantastic show, but I'll add mine to the mix. 

Another great year of fun, talent, and meeting of friends.  Thanks again to Kathy Wright, her team, and all those at Sauder who work so hard to organzie and put on this great show. 

It's still one of the highlights of my year.  If you've not been, get it on your calendar for next year, August 14-18, 2012.  And enter your rugs, the more the better!
