My first rug camp was 2003 and don't have one photo from that camp, other than the finished project from that class. My very patient teacher was Mary Lou Bleakley who color planned my rug.
That camp was so much fun it didn't end there with just one camp ~ it grew to 3 rug camps per year. My long-time followers have either heard me say that or read it on my blog before.
I'll never forget the first year attending Barb Carroll's rug camp at her home in Ligonier, PA.
At one class Barb was excited to share the hit and miss rug she'd recently hooked. Am sure Barb used her good useable wool from her big basket of delicious worms. But I've been saving selvages so one day I can do a bold hit and miss too. For several years I threw the selvages away but decided to save and use them in a future rug. After all, they are wool too and sometimes have extra colored threads which provide more color. Oh, I have that same Shelburne Poster in my wool room, it displays rugs hooked by Molly Nye Tobey.
