Tiny Treasures Workshop with Sara Judith   

January 13-15, 2024.

Thanks to Mary, our Guild was very fortunate to have Sara Judith, renowned rug hooking artist and teacher from Nelson BC, come to Centennial Hall to present us with a 3-day workshop called Tiny Treasures. Claire and Kitt provided some yummy snacks for the coffee breaks.

Our first day was challenged by a snowstorm! However, Carolyn M came to the rescue and set up a Zoom room for us which half of the group made precious use of on Saturday.

The workshop was really fun. We learned about design principles and the use of colour, and how these elements differ for tiny rugs compared to larger rugs. We each made a tiny hooked rug using #2 and #3 cuts and yarns. We also each made a tiny punched rug using a #14 Oxford punch and learned about creating special effects.

The workshop concluded Monday afternoon with a slide presentation to all our Guild members highlighting many of Sara’s exquisite rugs, some of them very large pieces in contrast to the tiny treasures we had focused on. Sara’s rug hooking words of wisdom and descriptions of her techniques left us all inspired and fulfilled.

Thank you, Sara!

On behalf of the participants, Emmy presents Sara with a little keepsake gift.
