Just returned home after spending a delightful and creative week in Ligonier, PA. What fun we had! I had a group of enthusiastic and creative ladies ready to try whatever I shared with them. I think we will see more and more different techniques and fibers used in future rugs, yeah!
Betsy Reed (Heaven's to Betsy) was another teacher who was there and I got pics of some of her pieces as she was setting up, LOVE those torn strips and standing wool with wide cuts!
Then we move on to Barb's beautiful home for an evening of good food and fun! She has the most amazing collections of all sorts of wonderful things we all love.
Students working away on their samplers
Four friends that have been working with Barb on their bed rugs. Wow!
Working away in class and on the extra sheep pillow project
Now we move on to the rug show from the all the students, remarkable work! Pics don't do them
Pics of the rugs in progress from my students and others in Betsy's, Barb's and Katie's class.
Cannot not wait to see some finished products! Opened up a whole new world to my students!
If you have not had an opportunity to attend this camp I would highly recommend it! Although it was Barb and Robin's last time to run the camp( after 21 years) they have placed it in the very capable hands of Katie Hartner. Check it out!
