Open House and Studio Tour!

It's about time you say!  Why doesn't she update her blog?!!!  I hope you'll forgive my absence from blogging lately and accept an invitation to our first Open House and Studio Tour!

We are in the process of transforming my studio into a shop, gallery and fun place to come and get inspired or pull out a frame and hook a few loops!

Hand-dyed wool is everywhere!
Patterns and kits for hooked rugs and wool applique galore!
( even a few antiques and hand mades thrown in for good measure)
Cookies and mulled cider to keep the chill away and the spirits nourished!
For those who can only join us in thought that day I will be taking many photos to share here before and during the event.

When: Saturday November 17th (Opening Deer Hunting Season here) 

Where: Red House Wool Studio- 1505 Fencl Ave. Rice Lake, WI

Time: 9:30 to 5:30
