Hi everyone! If you’ve been following along on this blog you know I’ll be at TIGHR (The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers) Tri-ennial Conference this Oct. 4 – 7th in beautiful downtown Victoria, B.C.
I have two rugs going on exhibit in their Back to Nature exhibit, which, it turns out, is open to the public on Tuesday evening at The Inn at Laurel Point from 4 – 7 PM in Spirit Room B. There is an admission charge of $10.00. Inside will be more than a hundred hooked items representing artists from around the globe. If you’re in the area, and/or want to see what the world of rug hooking has to offer, this is a good time to see a wide variety of work.
I am looking forward to the Tri-ennial, as it is the first rug hooking conference I’ve been to. I was to a rug camp once, but that’s not quite the same thing. This conference I’m focusing more on the business aspect of rug hooking and attending lectures and panel discussions, rather than classes (though I have signed up for one class). I am looking forward to meeting new people and learning new things. 🙂
