Our Rugs Exhibited in England
Diane, a member of the West Riding Ruggers in northern England, invited rug hookers to submit photos of their rugs for a huge display featuring rugs from all over the world. We submitted a disc with photographs of our members' rugs.
We've now learned that the display, called "A Rough Guide to Rag Rugs" will be held at the Bradford Industrial Museum, in Bradford, England, from May to July, 2009! In England, hand-made cloth rugs are called "rag rugs."
Diane adds in an email to us: "We also have a couple more museum /galleries that are interested in taking all or some of the work after it finishes in Bradford so it looks like we could be going on tour!"
Finally, she thanks the members of Heritage Rug Hookers of Saskatoon for their contribution: "Please thank your members for the picture disc that you sent for the exhibition....We are hoping to get a website organised so that we can put pictures of the exhibition on the web..." --Rita
