Hooker Hill Rug Retreat 2017 is proud to announce the Caswell Impressions Rug Show. The Caswell Carpet is an embroidered carpet made by Zeruah Higley Guernsey Caswell in 1835, which resides in the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Laura Pierce, from Petaluma, California, drew by hand each and every block in the Caswell Carpet and transferred these drawings to linen backing and then gave them to rug hookers to finish in any way that pleased them (78 in all). Many of ATHA Region 12 members had the opportunity to hook one of these mats. The Caswell Impressions Rugs will be making their first East Coast appearance at Sauder Village in August and their first West Coast appearance at HHRR in Oakhurst, California, July 17 and 19.You are cordially invited to come to a public showing of these magnificent mats at Hooker Hill Rug Retreat in Oakhurst, California.
Oakhurst, California is located 15 miles from the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. The Park is enjoying one of its most bountiful waterfall years and is worth a visit. Tag on a visit to Oakhurst on either end of your Yosemite trip. It will be worth it to see this impressive rug show.
