French Creek Ruggers ~

The French Creek Ruggers were the first group I ever hooked with. They made me feel so welcome and still do.  I don't get to hook with them since they only hook during the day, but tonight they had a special event at the library where the public could come see what hooking was all about.  They also had a rug show.  Oh, there was so much talent displayed!  Here is a sampling of the rugs ~ enjoy the show.

Hooked by Carole, this rug was in
Celebrations in 2007.

A Karen Kahle pattern hooked by Deanna.
She added a crocheted edge.

Arlene's Santa.
I LOVE this pattern.

Another magnificent rug by Carole.

Hooked by Karin (eBay seller primitivesprits).
I've done a punch needle version of this rug
but hope to hook it someday.

A wonderful rug hooked by Donna.

Laura's rug is only about 8"x10".  It is hooked in a 3 and 4 cut and the detail is wonderful.  It is a gift for her daughter.

Jean's rug.  It is HUGE!  (Maybe 4' square.)

The colors of these rugs are very washed out :(

Does anyone know of a rug hooking guild that meets in/near Myrtle Beach?  Two hookers from Nova Scotia are heading that way and are looking for a guild to hook with.  Any information you could provide would be most appreciated.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Pug hugs :)

Thanks for the rug show Lauren. I'm glad that you met up with this group at the library. You need to retire so you can go hook with them., Great show of rugs.

I think each and every rug is just beautiful. You know I would move east to be close to a hooking guild. :) I bet you had such fun being there. I know when you publish this photos It always motivates me to get hooking. :) Thanks so much.
