Sauder Rug Show 2014

Another awesome show!! Every year I think it can't get better, and it does. The amazing artistry and creativity of the new rugs on display is unbelievable, and the special exhibits that Kathy Wright pulls together are great, never to be seen anywhere else. Vendors offering all sorts of tempting goodies, classes, workshops, well what can I say, it's the best!
And then there are all the people of like mind that share, laugh, and have a good time.
Well if you can't tell by now, this is one of the highlights of my year. If you have not been before be sure to put it on your list of things to do in August of 2015, and if you do come, see you next year!
Enjoy the photos.

Vendor booths ready for excited shoppers. My hottest item was my new hand dyed linen.

Rugs in the show, notice the use of different fibers and techniques, my favorite.

Bonnie with her stone pony, her first entry, and a couple more rugs

I think you can tell where we were from the parking lot. Wish I could have taken a photo of each and every rug, but there lots more on Sauder's face book page, and Rug Hooking magazine has all the Celebration rugs. Check it out.
