This is the new rug that Marianne brought to work on for the day - she drew it up and hooked a little earlier that morning before making the one hour drive to the hook-in.......
........and these are the colors that will be included in it when it's finished. Love the brights!
We met at the historic Rio Grande train station in SLC - it's a beautiful old building with lots of good light and an airy lobby.
Here are some of the other rugs that were shared in the rug show.
And here are some of the rugs that we were able to enjoy 'in progress' during the day.
We organized a formal guild during the hook-in and are looking forward to more planned meetings and events, and eventually to bringing in national teachers. Our rug hooking community has grown a lot in the last few years and we'll only get bigger from here...... It was a really good day!
