I saw Joani at the Almonte Fibre Fest and she had this version of Temagami Highlands, I love the fall colours. Things are winding up as we get closer to the end of the year, Rideau Valley Boots and Baskets vendor day is Thursday Nov 2. and then one class in Georgetown. I am looking forward to a few months to focus on new classes for next year. Check in early Feb to see what is coming up.
Tip of the week/month, I was thinking I would share some things I have learned over the past 20+ years of rug hooking and teaching. not sure if it will be a weekly or monthly tip, I just have to see how it goes. Once of the best purchases I have made over the years was a Shamwow. You have probably seen them advertised on tv a great sponge for soaking things up. because it holds so much water it is really good for steaming your rug. I use a towel on the bottom and a well soaked Shamwow but not dripping, on the top, set the iron on linen, high steam and press away. Turn the rug and press on the other side. I do this before and after the finishing. I have found these towels at the flea market, dollar store (knock offs that work the same) and Canadian Tire, probably Walmart but I have not looked there. So first tip of the week/month done. Hopefully lots more to come. Stay well everyone. ... See MoreSee Less
