Maud Lewis Exhibition
Have you hooked a Maud Lewis pattern? Our group has
finished five Maud Lewis rugs and we would love to have more to show. If you have completed a Maud Lewis project, please join us in showing The Illuminated
Life of of Maud Lewis.
We are very excited to announce our vendors for the spring hook-in. They are as follows:
HEAVENS TO BETSY
"Where hooking is socially acceptable because we love wool"
Wool that has been specifically made with the "rug hooker" in mind. Textured wools that you just can't resist. Check out the website to view wools, events, & sign up for the newletter.
THE WOOL'N GARDENER
Specializing in new hand dyed and (the products that set me apart) is a large selection of over-dyed recycled wool. Colors range from the richest and deepest primitive palette to the soft and subtle pastels - in between are those marvelous brights!!! The Wool'n Gardener will also be offering spot dyes, shiborhi, and marbelized wools. As always, 3/8 yard packages which include either three values or complimentary wools will be available.
Special offering for the hook-in: I am always coming up with "accidental" formulas, so we will have a "Name That Color" contest. I will review the entries and select a name and the winner will receive 1/2 yard of that newly named wool, a $20.00 value. Since March is the time of year we are all thinking "green", all green hand dyed 1/4 pieces will be offered at $9.00 each which is 10% off the regular price. http://woolngardener.com/
HEART IN HAND RUG HOOKING
Heart in Hand Rug Hooking is known for beautifully dyed wool and original patterns. At the hook-in, we will be featuring new paisley patterns and paisley pieces for hooking. Another feature will be the newly introduced "Party Packs", color coordinated bundles of wool fabric, yarns, and other multi media. Come to our booth for expert color advice and warm service.
THE WOOL FARM
The Wool Farm is a small alpaca farm, plus a rug hooking and dye studio located in southern Delaware. Every day is spent at the hooking frame, spinning wheel, or dye pot creating new and wonderful items for rug hooking and spinning. I love hooked footstools, so for the Woolwrights' Hook-In, we will be featuring footstool bases, kits, patterns, plus wonderful whipping yarns, patterns, hand spun yarn, and, of course, some incredible dyed wool and roving.
The special for the hook-in will be 10% off all purchases. Everyone will also receive a coupon for $10.00 off their next purchase of $50.00 from our etsy store. See you all soon and keep on hooking!! http://thewoolfarm.com/index.html
