Hooker News from Rita


First, Thank you to...
1. Patti and Ron, for welcoming us into your home for our Christmas get-together and fundraiser; we had a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to the donors and buyers- your generosity raised $240 for the Rancheritas.
2. Everyone who helped with the demonstration at Sundog. Thanks also to Dorothy for organizing the display and volunteer list. There was a lot of interest in our craft.
3. Ann and Donna, for your work on the Sherbrooke rug. There are now 4 leaves finished. We have until the beginning of May to complete this project. It will be auctioned in the Sherbrooke Gala on May 15.
4. Alice and Gloria, for coordinating the gallery display, especially at such a busy time. We'll all be proud to show the city our work in our first gallery exhibition.
5. Patti, for coordinating our demonstration and display at the Heritage Festival of Saskatoon, taking place at the WDM on Sunday, Feb.7. This is happening at the same time as the gallery display, so we will need rugs for both events.
6. Liv, for your work on the blog. Liv will teach us about adding articles and photos at a future meeting.

Mark your calendar: Sask Stitches Conference, Muenster, May 28-30. Lynne Howard will be teaching a class on Hooking With Polar Fleece.

I think we had a great year! We created some wonderful rugs, shared ideas, inspired each other and enjoyed spending time together. Life is good.

Merry Christmas to you and those you love.

Rita
