We have been very busy the past few weeks preparing for ‘A Day of Fellowship and Sharing’ — a mixed fiber arts gathering hosted by the Golden Threads Ministry.
We are especially excited for this event because we will be doing a rug hooking demonstration for the other attendees! Our demonstration will be done using both fine cut and half inch strips. These two strip sizes are great for demonstrations because they provide two radically different results in a rug. In anticipation for the event tomorrow, a behind the scenes post showcasing all of the preparation that has gone into this event felt like the perfect thing!
The wool Ania prepared can be used on a lot of different projects besides traditional rug hooking, including to make penny rugs and quilt applique. That’s why an event devoted to fiber arts in its entirety is such a great place to showcase all of these products! Our preparation for ‘A Day of Fellowship and Sharing’ has included dyeing wool, preparing shimmer and metallic wool, making gift baskets, transferring patterns to linen, and more! Take a look below at some of the images of our activities.
