Getting ready for Western

2007 Laura at Western Rug Show

it’ll be great to back at Western… with all my friends! Brigitta is driving and will be a Trainee. I’m teaching the Trainee’s on Thursday and know a few of them already.

The photo is from a couple of years ago… taken by my friend, Sachiko. Being with other Rug Hooking teachers is what the magic is all about. Japan, Canada, the Pacific Northwest, California, Arizona and New Mexico… friends from all over!

i didn’t attend last year, so i offered to help out this year… and was happy to receive a teaching assignment. Collen Cardas hooked the piece and i will teach a class based on color and shading. The Shading part includes dyeing swatches and dip-dyes and hooking wool in a shaded manner. i’ve dyed a bunch of swatches and dip-dyes and am looking forward to spending the day with Trainees. there is a special room upstairs for the Trainees… a space removed from all the hub-bub. we use the classroom as our after-hours hooking space… in our pajamas! it will bring back memories of our first year at Western!
