In this photo Teresa and Ginny struggle to hold up a rug that Teresa designed and is in the process of hooking. She is using a 10 cut and it is a very heavy and fabulous rug! See more pics on photo page.
Sandy Schleuter gave a program geared toward a creative challenge. Rather than the doodle rugs that we have all read about. . . . Sandy did the doodling on each persons backing material. The challenge was in how each person then interpreted that doodle. By the end of the day we had 2 folks who had completed fish, one with a cowboy, one with sheep and another contemplating a ship. I believe the majority of folks were shy about jumping in and it is hard to keep your mind on developing an idea in a room full of folks that you have not seen for a solid month - and want to catch up with! I know that even the people who did not actively participate in this exercise still learned a lot just from thinking about and watching what took place. Thank you, Sandy for the fun exercise!
Next month's meeting will have a program on different types of proddy. If you want to get in on the fun, please bring a piece of backing, a pair of hemostats if you have a pair and some 3" wide strips of wool. (We will be cutting this to proddy.)
Please remember that the March meeting will be held at the Arvada Police station on the 30th of the month from 9-4! Hope to see you there!!
