Rug Hooking Demonstration

By Ti Seymour

What a glorious day it turned out to be and many wonderful vendors to visit.  Cathy & Paola from LCA joined with Doris/Felter to man 3 large tables on the sidewalk outside their shop.  They provided us with a table of our own, which they helped shuffle around the sidewalk to find shade and relieve my sunburn!  Claire Fradette and myself laid out examples of work, hoops & hooks and demonstrated rug hooking throughout the day.  It was a fun fun day stopping people in their tracks to show them our rugs and tell them about our fabulous Guild.  We had a fair few laughs, hooked up with some long lost friends and found a few people who were keen to learn more - 12 in fact ... not bad for a social day in the sunshine sipping "iced coffee", devouring a cone of maple ice cream and shaking up our inner-child with candy floss....you can imagine the sugar rush from all that.
