A Weekend of Inspiration
I'm just back from a wonderful weekend of rug hooking inspiration - this was the annual Camp Wool April hook-in, held at The Coastal House in Wells, Maine. The rug exhibits on both days were extraordinary, with one stunning rug that kept taking everyone's breath away - check it out:
There was a featured exhibit this year displaying the delightful rugs of Tom McNerney from Newburyport, MA. Tom is known for his wide-cut primitives, mostly his own designs, displaying his love of animals and nature. Below is a picture of Tom as he worked on another rug. He was on-hand for much of the weekend, demonstrating how he works with his extra-wide cuts and had fun talking to groups of hook-in participants about his rugs and the stories behind them. Tom is fun to listen and talk to, and is always eager to share his tips and techniques.
