( Jan loves my America pillow and wanted to hold it for the class photo... I think it speaks volumes that we are proud to be Americans and American Rug Hookers! LOL! and what a fun group of ladies they are!)
Well we made it through our beginning rug hooking class! Eleven lovely ladies graduated with flying colors! Last night was our final session at WITC. Four girls couldn't join us but will be visiting the studio in the next few days to finish their projects!
From the comments I heard last night everyone feels they learned enough about rug hooking to know they want to jump in with both feet and continue making rugs!
I know the studio will be hopping here this Spring as kits are ordered and wool will be snatched off the shelves!
My head is spinning with ideas for future projects and these gal's enthusiasm has me
giddy with anticipation.
Here are a couple of candid shots I took while the class was in progress last night...
Renea is watching while Roxanne and Ashley are intent on sewing the backs on their little pillows!
Renea is a talented carpenter and will be building rug hooking frames for some of the gals.
The classroom was always a buzz with everyone at different stages in their projects! Connie wore her blue scrubs to class as she works at the hospital and had to go work the night shift after class! Does that speak of dedication or what!! All the ladies have very busy lives but I know they will make time for rug hooking! How do I know that? Well..... they are hooked!!!
Congratulations to each and every one of you great ladies!
I am so proud of you all!
You make my heart sing!
