The main thrust of the information shared was all about finishing our rugs - we watched videos from several well know rug hookers - including Gene Shepherd, Karen Kahle, Joan Moshimer and Prudence Matthews.
Arline shared her expertise of adding braided borders to her hooked rugs by demonstrating the technique - below are several of her rugs where she has done this.
We watched while Angela showed how to use wool strips to crochet around the edge of a rug which is what Karen Kahle likes to do. You can see her slide show HERE with photos illustrating the individual steps for accomplishing this.
PBS did a story on Prudence Matthews several years ago and we got to watch the video on the big screen in our meeting room. You can watch it again HERE - - Another story about her and her rugs can be found HERE
Pictures shown below are projects that were being worked on by various attendees during the day.
