When I first started doing shows at the Lewes Historical Society I would dress in costume since the shows were at their historical village. Below is how I dressed, and yes that is me.....back in the day.
While doing these shows it was always fun to have people come up and inquire what I was doing. I'd explain it was traditional hooking, would demonstrate with the strips of wool. Many would say "I used to do that in college". Naturally I'd laugh to myself and ask if it was with pre-cut yarn (it was always acrylic I'm sure), and they would reply yes but the hook was different. That is when I'd try desperately to educate them on Traditional Rug Hooking. It wouldn't be a lecture, but a short education.
Okay, so I've a follower in need here and hope someone can help. There is a gal getting back into hooking after a few years and lives in southeastern Indiana and doesn't know any hookers. She would like to get with someone or a group as she thinks she'd catch up and gain a lot of information as well as friendships. If you know someone or a group who gather in the southeastern Indiana area please email Colleen HERE.
Okay kiddies, I'm almost done with my project and pondering what to do next. Hope someone out there can help Colleen. Have a great weekend.
