I am continually amazed at how grateful I am to be part of the rug hooking community. We may be a relatively small “pond,” but we are so united in our love for hooked rugs. I am energized when I get together with other rug hookers and am able to collaborate with them. I often work on projects alone and find that I seem to “need” the community to inspire me. I recently returned from the Puget Sound Rug School where I worked with the guidance of Sara Judith, our teacher, and a roomful of rug hookers who delighted in each other’s work. It is very satisfying to be part of this wonderful community.
Today when I was looking at my Facebook feed, I ran across a post that led me to a blog I hadn’t seen before by a Region 12, New Mexico rug hooker named Laura Salamy (www.highonhooking.com). Check it out to see what’s happening in New Mexico and to see Laura’s posts.
