Hooker News


1. We had a lovely, stress-free day at Gloria's hook-in, pleasant conversation and some laughs while we hooked. The food was wonderful--watch for Gloria's muffin and Taco Soup recipes coming soon to the blog.

2. For those of you who have borrowed the dyes, please continue to look for the missing Majic Carpet dye books- Antique Colors and Spots, Books I and II and Sky Blue Pink with a Smell of Green. They are small booklets, about 6"x 8", so they could easily been overlooked when packing the dye case.

3. We have a new member, Jacqueline. She is primarily a weaver, but we welcome her company and artistic ability to our group.

4. If you are interested in ordering Susie Stephenson's new book, Designing and Hooking Primitive Rugs, please let me know and we can order together to save shipping. The price is $15.96 on Amazon.ca. Send me an email if you are interested.

5. There is interest in holding a retreat. I have checked with Jackfish Lodge, Emma Lake and Dallas Ranch Camp and these facilities do not meet our needs. Any other suggestions? We can always return to Harmony House in Manitou. We have a tentaive booking made last year.

6. Need more light? Ott-Lite desk lamps are on sale for $49.99 at Michael's until March 5, reduced from $119.99. Other Ott lamps are 40% off.

7. Susan has offered to host a March hook-in, details to follow.

8. The Prairie Harvest Rug Hooking School registration forms are now available. With the school being held at Blackstrap, commuting from Saskatoon is easily accomplished.

9. Last call for membership renewal. Non members will be deleted from the list.

Take care,
Rita
