Before getting to coming events, I’d like to update you on the Caswell Impressions Rug Show at Hooker Hill Rug Retreat. Camp attendees had the privilege of viewing this impressive display of rugs laid out in groupings based on color. Laura Pierce talked about the Caswell Carpet, her design process, and the rug hookers who participated in this show. The public was also invited to see these rugs.
One night, some of the Wool Poppies rearranged the rugs to reflect the placement of the blocks in the original Caswell Carpet arrangement and then surprised Laura. It was a great surprise and so fun to see.
The last showing of the Caswell Carpet Impressions Rug Show will be at Sauder Village, August 14-19, 2017, in Archbold, Ohio. The rugs will then be returned to their makers.
