The pastor could not attended our Potluck Luncheon due illness. Judi Overly passed a thank you card around for all to sign. Judi will give the thank you card along with our $100 donation to the church.
After the luncheon we had lots of fun playing “Dirty Santa” with the ornaments brought by each member. Judi had everyone draw a number and we all took our turn choosing an ornament from the table, or being a Dirty Santa and steeling from another person. This made for a very fun exchange!
Peggy brought a Primitive Santa Doll that she made using muslin and clothing of a coat, hat and cape made from wool to be giving away as a door prize. Debbie Rocco was the lucky winner. Also, Joan brought a basket of knitted dish cloths she made for all to take one home. We missed all who could not attend!
Beginning Rug Hooking Class – Instructed by Marta Grinberg
This was a very good class that covered the history of rug hooking, backing materials used, and all the equipment needed for rug hooking. She also discussed the different styles and designs of rug hooking such as: primitives, pictorials, florals, Orientals, geometric, crewels, monochromatic. She had examples to show each of these styles and designs. Hooking direction, balancing color, loops, and borders was also talked about. This was a very informative class and she pasted on lots of helpful hints. All who attended this class was very appreciative of Marta’s contribution and time spend preparing for this class.
See the "Beginning Rug Hooking Class" blog for the complete details of the class.
