15 years at Little River Inn Rug Camp

A quick little rug for my rug camp advertisements… back in 2004, when I was planning the 1st rug camp at Little River Inn. Located in Mendocino County, California, the Inn was the home of a lumber king back in the day. Still in the family, the Inn is a popular spot on the beautiful Mendocino coast.

All of us at the 1st Little River Inn Rug Camp, October 2004!

Nancy Miller and Susan Higgins were our teachers and the campers came from near and far! I talked my mother, Emma Webber, into coming, too. It was a great gang and we were off to a great start!

A nice photo of Emma; she sold this rug to a couple at camp! She always liked to sell her rugs. This rug came back when the couple downsized; which Emma enjoyed. She changed the eyes… and enjoyed it even more!

A storm blew in and we got a bit of rain, but it didn’t last long and was very exciting!

It was a good start with help from my friends at the Inn and my teachers and campers! Yes… we’ll do it again!


  1. What fun! And a beautiful location.
