This angle is across the room toward the other class which was being taught by Terri Schaefer. Terri was teaching both braiding an edge to a rug as well as for those wanting to learn to hook. Terri was a more primitive hooker which is my fav.
In the sweater vest is my teacher Lisanne Miller (P is for Primitive.) She is working with my tablemate Renia, who is a sweetie and we had a great time together those few days. And I asked Renia's opinion on a couple areas I hooked on the rug and liked her input so made a couple changes in color of wool. Renia lacks self-confidence in her hooking but knows more than she gives herself credit for.
Peg is busily hooking away on her house.
Again tried to capture a picture of Terri showing Shari how to do the binding around her previously hooked rug. It happens to be the Out of Hand Challenge design Shari drew.
Here are some of the examples of works by our teachers....beginning with Lisanne's rugs. I like this primitive American design and Lisanne used some paisley in this piece.
As cameras or flash often does, the colors change in the photo. When you looked at the rug in person all you saw was a primitive dark/black background. Yet hooked in Lisanne's 'puzzle piece' background it all blended together nicely.
Here are a few of Terri's small pieces for sale. I just LOVE that character on the far left with the 'glam' glasses. Also shows a few of her chair pad patterns which have braided edges to show how it looks.
This is a close up of that cool looking character. There is a fancy pin in the hooked hat and jewels sewn to the corner of the 'cat eye' glasses.
The mustachioed Pumpkin character is sorta cool too, eh?
Another of Terri's hooked and braided rugs.
Okay, there's more photos to share but by now you're on sensory overload and I'll save more for later. There is still the impromptu rug show as well as the 'throw down' of camp rugs. So stay tuned.
Have a great weekend.
