Our First "Display" Day
A couple of weeks ago we were invited to take part in a Fibre Fest that was being held in Almonte, Ontario. A few of us made the little excursion along with our "precious" rug and we were able to display our project to the public for the first time while we sat and hooked on our own personal projects. It was wonderful to the see the reaction and hear the comments from people outside of our own rug hooking community. We felt like proud parents who had just given birth to a little bundle of joy. We made our grand entrance and announced our arrival by putting our big frame together (we are not carpenters) and retrieving all the tacks that had fallen to the floor but we regained our composure and the rest of the day was tremendous. It is just so inspiring when you see all the wonderful art, jewellery, dolls, quilting, rug hooking, etc. etc. displayed at these functions and it is an honour to be in such company...truly humbling!
