Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week 2012

This was my 3rd time at Sauder Village in Archbold, Ohio for the rug hooking show and workshop/retreat classes. It is one of my favorite places to go for rug hooking. The show is fantastic, the vendors are varied with beautiful wool and supplies to buy, the accomodations are perfect and the classes are fun and worth the trip. I was notified of a late cancellation in a class taught by Trish Johnson. I jumped at the chance to take her class and was so glad that I did. I will talk more about this later, but here are a few photos from the rug show. The above photo is the Eye See You display and it was amazing.

This was one of my favorite Celebration winners. It was hooked by Roland Nunn and called Lake Shore. If you have the Celebration issue, it's on pages 98 and 99. Perfection.

Another favorite of mine, Fantasy Flight hooked by Lyle Drier. This rug made the cover of Celebrations. Congatulations, Lyle!

Isn't the reflection amazing on this rug?  Hooked by Liz Marino.

Geronimo hooked by Grace Collette. Sweet story with this rug. You'll have to read about it yourself. It's on pages 22 and 23.

I was especially attracted to the landscape/pictorial rugs in the show, maybe because I was taking the class from Trish Johnson on pictorials. This was called Gold Hill, UK and hooked by Bernice Howell on pages 90 and 91 of Celebrations.
That's enough for now. I'll add more later.
