Rug Hooking Camp


Prairie Harvest Rug Hooking School was so much fun...it seems that when like minded people get together you can literally  feel all that positive energy swirling about. There were all ages and abilities & everyone was more then happy to share their expertise. I met so many wonderful people & learned so much from all of them...it was truly an experience that I will never forget. This was my first year at rug camp & I believe it will not be my last...I will definitely be coming back next year.

Susan(ME) & my instructor Beatrice Grant, she taught us techniques in Traditional Primitive Rug Hooking. Bea was the best instructor, warm,inviting with years of experience to share with us.



 Below is my my friend Heather who took the beginners class. As you can see from that smile...I think she is in rug hooking heaven...






The two photos above are pictures of our Traditional Primitives class, everyone is busy hooking, cutting & color planning. Lots of chin wagging & laughter was had by all.



Above is a photo of the dining hall...we were given fresh veggies from the monk's gardens, as well as the best made from scratch cookies at coffee time & to top it all off ...who could ask for more...but a little Abby school shop with an espresso machine...lattes & rug hooking, what could be more perfect.

It looks like you had a wonderful time at the class.
For a beginner, she sure is doing a beautiful job on her hooking and shading. Love seeing all the rugs, makes me want to hook more.

Susan that looks fantastic!! I have never heard of a rug hooking school!!! I want to come!!! Is it just in the summer? Do they do other things too? Oh how wonderful, I would love to learn rug hooking!!! I have been in the hospital on and off for some treatments, I am slowly getting back to my blogging and sewing! I feel like I missed so much! Looks like you had a blast!
