January Meeting of the Yarra Valley Rug makers

Hi fellow rug makers.
It been quite a while since you have heard from us. I hope you all have a New Year full of challenging resolutions and that all those incomplete rugs that are still hiding in the wardrobe will see the light of day and be completed.
We had a wonderful first meeting at Anne's in Warrandyte, Vic.
Six of us present, with one newie rug hooker-Kaye, and lots of fun and food. Welcome to the Yarra Valley rug makers Kaye.

 Our days are not just about hooking, they are also, as much about the social aspect- companionship, conversations and good food.

Its amazing what you sometimes pick up at op shops. This is Anne's latest  find. Hooked with yarn.

                     Our new member- Kaye brought in this lovely rug of her mum's in to show us. Kaye came along to get some hints as to how to match up her yarns and best finish it off. Much discussion as to how to proceed.

Both of her rugs are hooked with yarn
Chris continued to work on her ├Źn the beginning' rug, while Robyne brought along this lustrous pile of mohair, asking Chris to spin it up for, thereby earning her some money for the mission she supports in Uganda.         

Well that's your lot for Saturday 12th January. Thanks for joining us. Hope to see you here again soon. Cheers
