~*Up, Packed, Excited, and Ready to Go*~

Happy Monday Dear Friends! I'm so excited... so excited that I woke up without the alarm at 5:30 this morning! That is amazing for me... I'm very much NOT a morning person. Today I am though... today I'm teaching a rug hooking class... my first rug hooking class.

Everything is loaded up in the car... unless I've forgotten something...


I'm taking all kinds of things to share & show. I've gathered up just about every hooked piece I have... pieces I've made and pieces from others...


I've got a notebook with scribbles of things that I want to remember to tell my students... there will be 5 of them. We are having the class at the local quilt shop in town...Prairie Pieces. I'm excited... and nervous... but looking forward to having a day of fun... and making new friends.

I'm taking the camera... and plan to share more with you later. My hope is that this class will start a rug hooking group here in our small community. It would be so much fun to have a group of hookers & prim crafters to meet and gather regularly... maybe even here at my studio.

Wishing you all warm smiles...

Betty

  15. Betty, you are going to do great. A friend has rented a room in our local quilt shop and uses it for rughooking classes and supplies. She has really done a great job, and has new people learning the art of hooking and does penny rug also. This has become a full time job for her and then she has open hooking one afternoon a wk.where some of us gather to hook and chat, that also has brought in new people, so you may have to do this full time, wouldn't that be fun.
    Make sure you show pics and share. Best of luck.
