Fun plans for the Wine Country Harvest Hook-in.

So far, our Hook-in will include a fun project to ‘Make & Take’; scissor fobs with Tierra Cast parts and guidance from Steve Tierra.

Brigitta Phy is leading our efforts and will also be vending with her wonderful Green Valley Rug Hooking store; Brigitta’s beautiful hand dyed wool, patterns, kits, hooks & scissors, Jane Olson patterns, Mildred Sprout patterns, Cox swatches,  and more.

Laura Pierce will be the ‘Roving Teacher’ from 10am to 2pm with time out for lunch.  Laura has lots of experience teaching rug hooking classes; portraits, landscapes, fractur or Pennsylvania Dutch designs, geometrics and traditional rug designs.  In addition to your present rug project, bring a rug project that you haven’t been able to finish, for whatever reason; and challenge Laura to suggest a simple solution to get you excited about the project again.  Laura will also be vending with her Flying Dog Hookery store; beautiful hand-dyed textures, spots, dip-dyes and swatches, Ritchie Easy Grip hooks, along with washed and ready to hook textures.

The San Francisco Rug Guild is also vending and will have a wonderful assortment of handmade gifts and treasures.

Lolly Golden and Ellen Steiger will bring their ‘Needles in the Nest’ store with beautiful hand-dyed punching yarn, Oxford punch needles, patterns and more!

A new year at Wine Country Rug Hookers!

This is the post excerpt.

An ATHA Chapter, Wine Country Rug Hookers guild was started in March 1996 in Sonoma County, north of San Francisco, CA.  We enjoy getting together and sharing our love of traditional rug hooking; a fiber art that is creative, forgivable, colourful and can involve recycled materials… or not.  It’s a choice to use beautiful hand-dyed wools or recycled materials from friends, family or the thrift shop!

We are very active in bringing in teachers for workshops, retreating on the Sonoma County coast and hosting a Biennial Harvest Hook-in.  We meet on the 2nd Saturday of every month, except August. Leave a message if you would like to join us and see what we’re up to.
