Tipp City class was a blast

11bI am back home from a wonderful time in Ohio, teaching a rug hooking class with Alice Strebel. Let me share some photos with you. I know that you have been patiently waiting to see my Tipp City rug, since I only showed you a corner of it. It is in the slide show below.

Our 3 day class had the theme Welcome Home, and each student showed such enthusiasm for creating and hooking a design. Several even finished their rug in class. We had an inspiring time of crafting, enjoying delicious food, touching lots of colorful wool, seeing many beautiful rugs for show and tell, and being in the marvelous presence of the lovely, talented folks that attended. Our trunk show of Olive Rose folk art dolls was an added treat, as was the quaint ambience of Tipp City and  its antique shops and good eateries. What a way to welcome Fall! I did not want it to end and to say goodbye to my friends, old and new. Now that I am home, I am filled with a fresh, new vision for rug hooking. And after I get all my big traveling messes put away, I shall dive into…. something!

Thanks for stopping by ~ Karen

  1. Tripp City was indeed a blast. I also came home inspired. To be in the same room with so many talented kindred spirits (reference to Ali intended) just makes my soul sing. Thanks for sharing this part of yourself. It was an honor to meet you and finally connect name to a face.


  2. Loved every minute of it!! I wouldn’t miss the opportunity to take a class with you and Ali!! I love my rug and am going to do a Karen Kahle crochet edge on it!!! Thanks for coming to Ohio!!


  3. Wow, I keep reading about the Tipp City event every year, then watching for postings and and am always rewarded with such inspiring art! Thank you so much for sharing your pattern and fun photos from the class. Hmm… this class may be in my future!


  4. My gosh! If you girls keep this up in Tipp City, I may just show up! In fact, that’s what I posted to Alice. I took your class in K.C., but would love to take another. Also, adore the Olive Rose dolls!


  5. Sounds wonderful!!! Its always great to get together with like minded ‘creators’ and to spend whole days just hooking – with no ‘daily duties’ to have to get done before you can begin *smile*. Lovely work!
