Nebraska Rug Hooking Retreat {Nov 8 - 13}

Just returned from my first trip to Nebraska and what fun we had. Started at Janice Lee's shop, Black Horse Antiques/ Rug Shop and got some shots of rugs and antiques. Also some rugs hanging in her house, LOTS to see.

Then we moved on to the beautiful Lied Lodge for the retreat. I taught along with Pris Butler and Donna Hrkman and Janice set up an amazing wool store. Show and tell, always one of my favorite parts. There is amazing hooking going on out there.

A few of Donna's students rugs

Last, but not least, my students. I must apologize, for some reason not all of my photos came out which is very disappointing as they did some fantastic work. Lots of different techniques and fibers, and so much fun. Can't wait to see finished pieces!
