The Team of Women Matters

Rhonda Kellett (teacher) Joan Boyle (teacher & mentor), Jean Smith (mentor), Sheila Brokloff (mentor), Jane Cuthbert (teacher), Pen Deering, Nancy Lane, Fran Ducross, Eleanor Buttrey, Kim Slade, Nancy McNamara, Irene Horbay, Nancy McFarland, Joan Hunter Marjorie Francis and Julie Ridler. We have had many who are interested in the project and there will be additions to the list as we approach our ``finishing`` stages of the rug. What a team!!! Many of these women have their Fibre Artist Certificate from St. Lawrence College as well as their Rug Hooking Teacher certification from the Ontario Hooking and Craft Guild while many are in the process of working on it. Their experience is invaluable.

A comment from Julie on my blog reminded me to check in to yours. I read every entry and think you are all amazing!!! And the rug is incredible. It's so wonderful to see how people galvanize around a meaningful cause. Hats off to all of you for starting, and continuing, something that is truly inspirational to all of us.

OK...What you gals need is to celebrate....
The Fabulous Women Matters Rug MUST have an unvailing party! I think each of you need to write the Textile Museum, and I mean ALL of you who worked on the Rug, you must have the unvailing/opening there! It would attract the attention you need, and the funds...
When is the Rug finished?
Start writing the proposal now...it would be a well attended event, and I, for one,would write a letter and if need be help set up for the unvailing....(Julie...I'll be asking about this!:)
