Grain Elevator Rug Project

A couple of updates on the cross-Canada grain elevator rug project:

1) Rug Hooking Magazine will publish a story or profile of the project in the spring 2011 issue.

2) The Sask. Legislative Assembly gallery is interested in displaying these rugs, too; we need a name for our display, so email your suggestions to Rita. She is also looking into Western Development museums in many cities.

3) Please consider creating a grain elevator rug this year. There are currently over 30 participants from across Canada. Photos of the projects will be taken at the 2010 Prairie Harvest Rug Hooking school, for proposed submission to Rug Hooking Magazine.

4) If anyone from Alberta, BC, or Manitoba would be interested in checking into possible sites for a showing, please Rita know.

5) Suggestions of any kind for this project and its exhibit(s) are welcome! Contact Rita.
