Leader: Connie Wisneski, Amherst, NH
Our quilting and now rug hooking coordinator, Connie Wisneski, will facilitate Calumet's first Rug Hook-In retreat this December. Bring your projects to work on or finish up for Christmas presents.
If you are new to rug hooking, Connie will have some easy beginner coaster hooking kits for you to learn this beautiful art. Let Alice know when you register if you neeed a beginner rug hooking kit for $30. (Kit will include a piece of primative linen 18x20, precut wool strips, a piece of felted wool for the back of the coaster and a rug hooking hook.) Beginners should bring a hoop (quilting, embroidery or rug hooking larger than 8 inches), fabric scissors, and hand sewing needles to sew felted wool to the back of coaster).
Calumet is the perfect place to spend some time during the busy holiday season. It's quiet, peaceful and best of all all your meals are provided and there are no dishes to wash! During this retreat you can join others in fellowship and friendship and get away from normal routines during the start of the winter season.
Cost for room and meals: $183 Beginner rug hook kit: $30
