Have Hook Will Travel
Yesterday was the annual Eliot (Maine) rug hook-in. It's been going on for I believe 28 years now and no doubt grown from a smaller event to what it is today, over 100 participants, vendors, a lovely, well-lit venue with great food and of course, loads of great hooked rugs. I was one of the five vendors. Here are a couple of pictures taken by Lauri Troutman, (Miz T), who worked hard to make the event a fun day for everyone:
Primitive Pastimes) booth at the hook-in. She's an amazing altered artist and rug hooker.
Future vending engagements so far this year will include quilt shows in March and August as well as two rug hook-ins in April. These events are great fun, a lot of work, but it's always nice to meet new friends, reacquaint with old friends and come away with loads of inspiration.
Hope you had a great weekend too!
