October meeting is right around the corner

White Mountain Woolen Magic
October 2014 Newsletter

Fresh from the Deerfield Fair...what a weekend! Despite the crazy heat, several guild members were there todemonstrate and educate folks about the art of rug hooking. We may have some new guild members and/or hook-in attendees as a result of all the promotion.
Congratulations to everyone who entered their rugs.  It was a beautiful display and we should all feel very proud of our accomplishments.
Special congratulations to our Grace Collette, the 2014 Featured Artist. Her beautiful rugs seem to come alive with the various techniques she uses and they all tell wonderful stories.  Well done, Grace!
The next meeting of the White Mountain Woolen Magic Guild will be held on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at the Maxfield Library in Loudon, 10:00am-2:00pm.  Bring your lunch and a snack to share.
This will be a finishing program.  Mary Jane Peabody will be there to assist with the proddy projects such as the flower pins for the October hook in and rugs started at her workshop last winter.  
Lisa Chaloner will assist folks with hooked name tags...ahhhh, remember those?  Bring some scraps of wool and create a name tag for yourself.
We are hoping that Ann Winterling will be there to answer any questions you may have about your face project and set you on track to finish your piece.  Stay tuned.
The October 25th Hook-in is quickly approaching and Lynda will give an update at the meeting. She worked very hard at the fair to promote the event!  Remember to please bring door prize items.  Theydon’t need to be fiber related but those are always welcome. Thank you to those who have alreadymade pins. We have some beautiful pins to give to our guests.
The Hooked in the Mountains XVII Hooked Rug & Fiber Arts Exhibition will be held October 15-19 in Essex Jct., VT. Another talented guild member, Peg Irish, is one of the featured artists.  For more information go to:
Coming in November, Pam Rowan will return to teach us how to make a small, braided turtle. Plan to attend the meeting on November 1.2014
Happy Hooking!
