From Rags to Riches

In honor of Women's History Month, the Suffolk County Historical is hosting a show called From Rags to Riches: The Living Tradition of Rug Hooking.  Several members of my guild -- me included -- have been asked to participate.  And guess what?  They picked one of my rugs -- Mary's Runner -- to be on the  invitation to the opening!  What fun for me!

And fun for you -- because you are all invited!  Here's the scoop:

I sure wish New York and Utah were a little closer to each other - I 'd be there in a minute!

How exciting that your rug made the cover of the invitation! Kinda like being a "cover girl"!
Oh girl, if you lived closer I totally would have taken you up on the offer of doing the cording. However, once I got the tension problem resolved it was smooth sailing. Still don't "like" to sew though!

Congratulations Sarah on having your rug chosen for the cover. I'm excited for you and wish I could be there. I hope that you'll take photos to share with us. It sounds like this is going to be fun. Hugs, JB

Thank you for letting us know of this beautiful show. The pictures look wonderful. I am going to try to get down to the show. Congratulations on your rug being chosen for the cover!! Have not started on my hedgehog yet- recuperating from rotator cuff surgery. Hope to see you soon at the fleece and fiber fair. Diane
