Hello ATHA Region 12 rug hookers,

Follow ATHA Region 12 and be eligible to win the wool pictured below!

Please let me know any happenings in your area so that I can post them here on our website for all to see.  This website is a great way to publicize all your events or brag about what you’ve been up to.  We want to know.  Send me photos of your events and I’ll post those too.   Also, please click on Follow ATHA Region 12 (bottom left hand corner of this post) to follow this website.  To date, we only have a few followers and I want to feel like the information posted here is reaching our members.  As an incentive to follow us, I will have a wool drawing and the names of all followers will go “in the hat.”  The drawing will be on October 24, 2014.

I’ve just added a new menu item called Hooking Groups.  This page is for groups that are not ATHA groups, but who would like to reach rug hookers new to their area or ones that may not know that the group exists.  Send me your information and I’ll add it to this page.

Also, please check the ONGOING Chapter meetings listed in the ATHA Newsletter (page 61, Oct/Nov 2014 issue).  A quick perusal of this section reveals that some information is not current.  Some entries list old contact persons.  Make sure your Chapter’s listing is up-to-date.


….to Jane Artinian (California’s First ATHA Chapter, Indio, CA) who published an article in the Oct/Nov 2014 issue (page 21) of the ATHA Newsletter entitled Dia de Los Muertos.  She hooked three Day of the Dead skeleton mats memorializing friends and family who had died of cancer.  To learn more about Day of the Dead hooked mats, read her article.

…to Sandra Grasso (California’s First ATHA Chapter, Redlands, CA) who also published an article in the Oct/Nov issue (page 42) called Tomas or My Turkey, as I Like to Call Him.  Read the article to see Sandra’s unique finishing method.

… to Gene Shepherd (Orange County Classics, Anaheim, CA) who is ATHA’s new Education Chair.  Read his message on page 59 of the ATHA Newsletter  and his idea for a “think tank” composed of one member from each chapter.
