Marin Fair dot org

I’m figuring out which rugs to enter into the Marin Fair and Sonoma County Fair. You can enter your rugs in the Fair, too! Marin Fair accepts entries from all over California! Check out their website;

‘Emma -Rug Artist’ hooked by Laura W. Pierce

Last year’s Best of Show Rug was my hooked portrait of my mom! It was quite an honour to have ‘Emma-Rug Artist’ singled out. They do a nice crafts show at Marin Fair, everthing mixed together; jewelry, knitting, quilting, hooked rugs, braided rugs, needle point, beading, crochet…

Red Quilt – circles and squares

sorry i don’t know who the quilt artist is… i am attracted to the quilts at the Fair. This pattern is one that Rug Hookers use too. one of our Raffle Rugs was of this pattern, but with ‘hit and miss’ as we say… left over bits of wool.

This year, Wine Country Rug Hookers have 2 Raffle Rugs; one is still being finished… a primitive Tulip rug. The other is a small rug i donated, ‘I Love a Parade’; my 2004 ‘Show and Tell’ that i hooked for Western Teachers’ Workshop in Eugene. Yes, i go every June; i love connecting up with all my friends there.
