Katie Allman puts on the most wonderful hook in at Kingwood Center every June. It is such a beautiful place to wander about, though the weather didn't allow for too much wandering. Thankfully the rain can't stop the hookers :) There were about 150 hookers in two buildings.
This year's theme was Red, White and Blue. We all received a wool firecracker . . .
. . . and were entertained throughout the day by Miss Liberty (aka Sue, one of the funniest hookers you will ever meet).
Lots of good vendors. (Sorry, I didn't get pictures of all of them).
Kris Miller, Spruce Ridge Studios, always has a beautiful booth.
Daisy, a pattern I purchased from Kris last year but have not yet hooked.
I believe this vendor was Basket Treasures from Indianapolis. Most of their goods were displayed in vintage suitcases and antiques. What a couple of characters.
Linda Powell also had a fun display . . .
. . . and LeAnn's booth had such beautiful alpaca yarns.
Hooker friend Melissa and I shared a space. Here are some of my goodies.
Close up of the antique paisley pendants I made. Aren't the elephant and fish necklaces fun?
Melissa makes beautiful wool cuff bracelets adorned with bits of antique lace and buttons, sari ribbon, beads, etc. Each is one of a kind.
Some of the patriotic rugs displayed. I believe the flag/soldier rug was voted to be the best patriotic rug. Very touching.
It is so nice to spend time with like-minded individuals who all share the same love of hooking. I had a number of people tell me they read and enjoy my blog and that just made my day.
I have more to share but will save that for another day.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
