It is with sadness that I write this post. Judy Carter, a well known rug hooker and teacher, is no longer with us. I have Judy’s book “Hooking Animals”, and was looking forward to taking a class from her one day. I regret not having made a decision to take that class sooner. I have never met Judy, but her impact can be felt throughout the rug hooking community amongst those who did. And it was a significant impact. She will be missed.
Today, as I worked on “The Weave” – a rug about a poem on the stages of life – I thought about Judy. I think it is time to add some darks, for the sad and the dark times in our lives. May you rest in peace Judy.
If you have been, thanks for reading.
