Okay, Guys... here I am---- knocking at your virtual door again... asking and begging you to send entries into Rug Hooking Magazine's annual Celebrations contest. Check magazine page 10 and 11 of December 2012 issue....for all information or read basic info below. or go to their website www. rughookingmagazine.com/contest/
Last year they received fewer than expected entries of primitive rugs. As primitive rug hookers, we need to share our wonderful pieces and pat ourselves on the back. We, as a group of rug hookers, don't seem to value our work as much as fine or artistic rug hookers do. I am hoping we can change that attitude. The first step is to enter Celebrations.
Yes, there is an entry fee---but if you make it in the line-up you get a free copy. Yes, it's a hassle taking the photos...but I bet most of you have a child, grandchild or relative willing to help if it's something beyond your talent. ( Best photos are REALLY important) Yes, you many not win....but does that really matter? And no one will know unless you tell them! and wouldn't it be great to be part of something really neat?
If you have any questions, please contact me. If would be great to see more primitive rugs in the next Celebrations. Sincerely, Cynthia Norwood
