Down a dirt road, past fields and deep woods ~
stands a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof...
it's here at our beloved Notforgotten Farm that you will find me...

chasing kittens, puttering in the gardens or talking to the tree.

I love seeing the past through the eye of a needle ~
...I collect old & odd things.
I pull wool & cotton through linen. I walk barefoot in my garden and throw my head back and cackle when I laugh...

I'm just a little farm-witch that loves where I am & who I'm with ~

Our little needlework shop & studio

 Hello Friends & Folk!

Peter & I have something to share with you...

that's right!!
this year, 2018 ~ marks our tenth year for our
Gathering of Primitive Friends show here on the farm ~
how time flies when you're having fun!

... to make this year even more special,
we have decided to turn our attention to our love of rug hooking and all things wool!
SO, along with our vendors & dealers of primitives, antiques and folk art ~
we are honored to include awesome *new* vendors of rug hooking related wares for you!

you might know that we have been in the process of renovating our shop 
to better accommodate more room for us when we gather to hook {punch, stitch...}
 and for our classes
but we have a surprise for you...

On the day of the Gathering, in addition to general shopping in our dealers' booths and our shop,
you can pre-register to enjoy a full day of Rug Hooking with us 
~ for our 1st ever {and soon to be annual} Hook In & Rug Show!!

how much more fun can one have, than to be hooking with friends old and new ~
...while enjoying the sights & sounds of a beautiful farm in the Early Fall...
shopping to your hearts' content 
sharing your wonderful hooked rugs with everyone to admire?

 I hope you are as excited about this as Peter & I are...
there is lots of work to be done, but this is something that we have talked about for many years
