Quite some time ago I asked my friend Jan Barnett if she knew anyone who knew how to hook rugs. Wyoming seems to be a remote area where rug hooking is concerned. Jan thought that a woman in Shell WY, named Patty Tyrell knew how and she would contact her. Being the impatient soul that I am, I found information on the Internet and taught myself how to hook thanks to wonderful people who record on places like YouTube.
In September Jan announced that Patty would indeed teach a rug hooking class. When I saw the date I knew I couldn't go. I was so bummed. So.... Thursday I was on Rug Hooking Daily and decided to check the list of members to see if anyone from Wyoming belonged and guess who's name popped up. Yep, Patty's! I asked her how the class went and she said that it was canceled due to her mother-in-laws passing away and that the class was.....Saturday! She invited me to come and I ended up bringing my hand dyed wool to sell.
The class was so much fun!! There were 11 women who came plus myself and everyone did such a fantastic job of hooking.
You can see some of my wool in the background.
The kits were ordered from I Love Rug Hooking and I have to say the the colors were fabulous!
There were two tables of woman hooking but by the time I realized I should be taking pictures most of the other table had gone. We plan on getting together again. I have hopes that at least a few of us will continue to meet and hopefully even more will join in.
