May Meeting notes ... the Fiber Fair's Coming!

The HHRHG met Saturday, May 10 at the Library in Washington, Indiana.  It was a jam-packed meeting. "Early shopping" took place of the remainder of the wool and patterns obtained from Rita Chenoweth.  There was also three bags of recycled wool available for free.

Some Guild members decide what they want at the table of patterns ...
Here's some of the wool that was for sale with lots already "taken" ...

After unpacking our hooking projects, shopping, and visiting, the business meeting was called to order and in old business the following items were discussed, all related to the Fiber Fair coming up this Saturday:
  • Noma Brizius distributed tags and numbers to members who will be selling items in the Guild marketplace booth.
  • Saltbox Primitive Woolens has cancelled as a vendor and teacher at the Fair.  On the plus side, we found that Hollyhock Hill will be here again this year, as well as Margo White Hooked Rugs.  We are so fortunate to have these two rug hooking vendors back!
  • Because of the Saltbox cancellation, the membership will take on the task of teaching the beginning rug hooking class and we have the project planned and well in hand ...
Here's the Beginning Rug Hooking class project, sample hooked by Teresa Kinman.
  • Other items of old business involved the raffle rug permit (in order), best of show voting for our rug display (planned), the label for the raffle rug (in place), lunch vendor (confirmed), Kid's Corner (on target) and as usual, Jan Cabel will demonstrate needlefelting ...
    Here's a sample of Jan's work; everyone loved the little bunny sleeping on a leaf (upper left).  And the alligator is adorable Jan!

    Jan will have this sheep for sale at her demonstration table ...
  • A community corrections person will help with set up on Friday and take down Saturday.  Everything else appears to be going smoothly and we're as ready as we can be.
The business meeting was adjourned and most members stayed to finish shopping, visit and hook.  

ANNOUNCEMENT: Teresa Kinman is opening a rug hooking shop at her home called Woolen Heirlooms.  Everyone wished her well in this exciting new endeavor!  Her phone number is in the column on the right.


Here's some more pictures from the meeting of what members were working on ...
Sheila Parker is hooking this two-color sampler-style rug.  Very impressive!

Becky Aldridge is in the process of binding this hospitable pineapple rug.  (Hope she brings it to the rug show!)

Another of Becky's rugs ... she's working on a unique style of finish for the edges.  We can't wait to see the finished product!
