Nebraska City, NE Rug Hooking Retreat

I wanted to share a few pictures from my last couple of days at the Nebraska City Rug Hooking Retreat.  My instructor was Jan Goos and she was wonderful!.  I'm not sure but the rug she helped me with might be my all time favorite.  I won't post until it is complete....keep you in suspense.

We hooked Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9-3 and could come back and hook till 11 at night.  On Monday night each instructor gave a talk.  Here is a picture of one of the instructors building a color wheel with people.

Here is Jan Goos giving her talk (did I mention she was a great instructor). (notice the Maggie rugs on the back wall).

On Tuesday night we had an auctioneer come in and auction off items that attendees had brought.  A drawing was held and two people will get to come to next year's retreat for free.....:(   I think the auctioneer had a great time and wants to come again next year.  He now knows what a snippet bag is.

Here are some other random pics.
Well back to work.....it was fun while it lasted.  Linda

  2. Linda, What fun! Can't wait to see your completed rug. I really like the rug in the background that appears to be "pennies" - the round circles on a dark background - beautiful. ~Ann
