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. https://www.littleriverinn.com/

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!
