Xmas Hook-in!

A Festive Hook-in!By Dawna Matthew

We celebrated the holidays at our last 2017 Hook-In on December 11th. Everyone was in a festive mood, gifts were exchanged and delicious goodies enjoyed. It was nice to see one of our new members, Ann, win a basket full of wool. This will help her stash grow!

Show & Tell: Xmas! Hooked Bags!

I received the beautiful red handle as a birthday gift from a dear friend and so it became my inspiration to hook a purse for it at a course I took in Ontario.

This bag is an original design. It is made out of a discarded cotton knit skirt cut in No. 8.

I have hooked the brown bag using a burlap bag I bought at Dollarama*, The stylized flower uses the different stitches learned in a workshop given by Lois Morris. New wool was used in  No. 3 and 6 cuts.

This purse was “made in a day” at a Green Mountain workshop in the fall 2016. It is perfect to use for errands when I take the car.  For the hooking I used new hand-dyed wool on monk’s cloth.
