Rug Hooking Fun

There were three of us hooking at the Library in Cody, WY Saturday. We had a lot to discuss at our meeting. We would like to start a Hook-In Camping weekend next summer in the Shell Campground. Shell, WY is nestled just off the Big Horn Mountains. It is truly one of the most beautiful little towns. There are a couple of cabins for those who don't have campers or tents and we want to make it a fun weekend for the husbands and kids too. The campground is right along the river and trout fishing is right at your fingertips. We have a lot to do to prepare for this event, like a vendor or two, but I know it will be a GREAT time for all who attend.

Debra is getting so close to finishing her Beverly Conway rug she started in the class at Old Faithful Rug Hooking Retreat in Cody, WY with Diane Stoffel as her teacher. It is so elegant looking. I know she is very happy with it.
Patty worked on the rug she started at Prairie Rose Rug School in Richardton, ND. Her teacher was Nancy Gingrich. The flowers in the fields and the river turned into a road are wonderful touches that makes this rug unlike any of the others we've seen. Don't you just love the blue house? Her pattern is from Woolley Fox.
I decided I'd better get busy on the purse I will be finishing in Carrie Martin's class at the Denver Hook In. The event is put on by the COATHA group and it is by far the most fun I've ever had at a Hook In. Okay, so it's the only Hook In I've ever been to, but it's still the most fun!
We are working hard to bring rug hooking to more people in Wyoming. Our Facebook page has been successful in finding another rug hooker in Gillette, WY. We hope to meet her soon.

Debra also finished her Saddle Up by Pine Island Primitives. It is truly stunning! I love the directional hooking.

Be sure you check out our Facebook page Wild West Rug Hookers and join our group. We want to hear from you!

  1. I checked the Shell Campground website and it says there are 7 cabins besides RV sites and tent sites. It would be so much fun!!!
