Sometimes it is what you remember happening around the time you were hooking it. Sometimes the actual rug has a story. And sometimes the rug acquires a story after you are finished hooking it. This past weekend, Lynn Soule was kind enough to share some of the stories of her rugs with me. It is amazing how, in just a few minutes, you can really feel like you get to know someone through their artwork. I have to imagine it would take hours of conversation to go equally as deep. To me, the most interesting rugs are the ones that appear not to have a story.
This is how I started my morning… it’s not often you enjoy your ride to work, so I had to stop and take pictures. My ride to North Hero, Vermont
I was on my way to the Fiber Festival in North Hero, Vermont hosted by the local group, The Fiber Bees. They held a very well attended hook in on August 8. There were three other vendors there including, Deb Enis, Evelyn Gant, and Mary Lee O’Conner.
The Fiber Bees put on a great event which included a small exhibit and even a Grenfell!
Thanks to Lynn and the Fiber Bees for inviting Green Mountain Hooked Rugs to attend! We can’t wait for next year!
