The USA50 project is to send hooked a hooked pillow from every state up to a historic church in Canada for their hard wooden pews. The church is being used as a performance venue and museum...long performances get uncomfortable, hence the pillows. It is our gift to the church celebrating its 200th birthday.

As everyone heads back to school we are reminded of the opportunities the world has to offer. For some it is the chance to share the love of Rughooking with new students and for others it is the chance to learn how to rughook. I had the amazing opportunity of sharing Rughooking with a small group of ladies at our first Guild meeting a couple of weeks ago. They picked up the basic skill within an hour and some will quickly become experts. I challenge everyone to share and explore their talents with the world.
