Wool Sisters - Alabama {May 20 - 23, 2011}

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.

These ladies never cease to amaze.  They accomplish so much, moving from one project to the next and they're all wonderful!

Western Reserve Hooking Guild

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!
