It is a glittering, golden morning here in Greenport today. I love these fall days, but I am not liking the long, dark nights.
There is some good news for rug hookers, and I am late in posting about it. But, as you all probably know by now, better late than never is my motto.
Up first: Wanda Kerr has acquired Magik Carpet Dyes. These are food grade dyes, supposedly a much healthier product than other dyes. You can find Wanda and the dyes at Wandaworks. She is also the owner/moderator of The Welcome Mat and writes Rug Hooking Magazine's dye column.
Second: Heavens to Betsy has acquired George Kahnle's (Hooked on the Creek) wonderful and whimsical rug hooking patterns. (Sadly, George passed away a little while ago.) It is great that George's great talent will be available to rug hookers again.
Third: The Fiber Festival of New England is this coming weekend, November 1 & 2, at the Big E in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Barb and I will be there, with loads of new stuff. Please come and see us in booth 457 East.
