The twice yearly meetings of R.U.G. (Ruggers United Gathering) at the Simcoe County Museum are always a great opportunity to meet and visit with friends old and new , learn something new or interesting about hooking and get supplies…oh yes, and eat too many goodies.
Saturday was our fall get together day. I was able to be there for a short time in the morning, but Mathieu was home this week for a brief visit from Calgary and a friend of his was here visiting him from Toronto, so I hurried home after my own supply shopping to have a last visit, make dinner and say goodbye as he headed back west.
Sooo…..Here’s what was going on from a pop-in perspective….lots of beautiful wool and hooking supplies from the vendors….
….lots of people bring scissors to be sharpened and cutters to be repaired….…..Mary Lou Justason held a special sale of her own wool as she pared down her stash….all money received is going to The Hooked Rug Museum of North America. She is a tireless worker on their behalf, always coming up with innovative ways to raise money.Linda Wilson and some others had helped her sort and label the wool for sale. As you can see by the crowd behind Linda, it was a popular spot to make purchases.
The morning was a hook-in and then Show and TellPeople were just gathering while I was there.The afternoon program was to be about borders. I didn’t get to see that presentation of course, however, I did sneek a peek at the pile of rugs which I presume were to be a part of the discussion, and thought you would enjoy seeing the wide variety of borders that were evident. They certainly do set off a rug and the variety and options are endless.
Thanks for stopping by.
