2nd annual hurricane hook-in

On November 1st, 2008, the Quoddy Loopers will hold our second annual hook-in, 9:30am to 4pm, in the Catholic Church of St Andrew in the town of St Andrews, New Brunswick. All are invited to attend, but we hope not to actually have hurricane weather that weekend. Last year, the weather was wild and woolly, somewhat appropriate for all us wool addicts. It did keep some people at home, unfortunately, so they missed the day of fun, a great lunch put on by the ladies' guild, prizes and a chance to purchase [or be lucky enough to win] some of Sande Gunning's River Gallery goodies.

PLEASE, if you are planning to come to our hook-in, let us know so we can be sure not to run out of FOOD!! thanks.

All rughookers are welcome, the newbies, the experienced and all those seriously 'hooked' on this great art form. Our group has recently added four new members, so it's growing in variety and colours, just like our ever-stretching stashes of yummy wools and yarns.

It's terrific to see everyone's work, so don't forget to bring some show-and-tell, if you have it.

Here is Louise McGrattan's charming covered bridge with birch trees, in winter. She is a relatively new rughooker, and is doing a great job.

Great blog, what a fantastic idea!
I hope I can make it to the hook-in this year, you all have been doing some beautiful work.

Hi debidee - I can't remember if I responded to you -- I thought I had by email, but I can't find it. It's been a busy month and October is jammed! We are looking forward to a good turnout at our Nov 1st hook-in, so if you can come, that would be great!
Thanks for the kind words -- I'll pass them along to the group!

Hi my name is Della Ackles from Amherst, NS and I saw the post for your hook-in from the Rug Guild of Nova Scotia web site. I thought I saw there that the hook-in is on Nov. 8th but I could be wrong. Can you tell me is it for sure the 1st of November? I may venture up your way to attend and I have a couple of friends who might want to as well. Appreciate whatever info you can give me.
Thanks,
Della

oops - forgot to say to please let us know how many will be coming, so we don't run out of food! That would never do...
