~ Preparations ~

 Good Thursday Morning 
~ Friends & Folk! ~

we are in the throes of preparing for the upcoming
Rug Hooking Week at Historic Sauder Village ~ August 14 - 19th.

lots of patterns still to be printed and packaged, linen to be cut ~ books to be bound!
we are so excited to be included in this year's rug hooking week,
... and I am over the moon to be teaching as well ~

click on the image below to read more about Rug Hooking Week ~


this is the project I'll be teaching,
 ~ a Floral Dummy Board ~  to show how to incorporate punch needle 
into your rug hooking for added effect...

I'm still working on new designs that I'll be taking with me for this show ~
and I will have a few Show Exclusives that will be in limited kit-form at the show...
{but, you'll just have to wait till after the show to see them!} 

Lots of folks are asking what we will have in the booth:
so, aside from patterns ~ we will be bringing along our
 Hookinpunch© gripper frames, Punch Needle Stations, Floss Winder Boxes, 
Wooden Paddles, Stitcher's Trays, Primitive Rug Hooks...etc.

i should be finished with this owl & jack punch this afternoon, 
~ then will 'finish' finish it with a rug hooked border ~

oh! almost forgot,
we will be bringing along our new Sewing Clamp too :)

and we will be offering them in our Etsy shop soon too ~

I will share more photos later on my Instagram page & FB

 Well I am off to work...
yard work & farmhouse chores before needlework today.
grass is getting tall, weeds are getting high, laundry is piling up.

have a beautiful day my sweet friends!

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori
