In early April, I had the pleasure to teach at the Eureka Springs Rug Camp. Vickie Hardcastle is the hostess for this camp and she works hard to make sure that everyone is happy...she served up some really yummy food and no one went away hungry!  There were quite a few spectacular wide cut/primitive rugs being hooked during the workshop.  Here is one by Carolyn Snyder.  She changed the wording from "My House" to "Stone County" to personalize her rug.  I love the white house and red bird and tulips up against her dark background.  The contrast is stunning.  Notice how the letters are hooked in just a little bit different wools to give variety and make them not so predictable.  This is an excellent example of a great primitive rug!

Here are just a few photos of Eureka Springs and the rugs being worked on at camp:
I love this unusual building in town.

My demonstration of how to hook a realistic primitive eye.....
Bunnie McGee was hooking October 31st, a Notforgotten Farm design

Ella Davison was hooking Bird of Paradise, a Spruce Ridge Original design,

Barb Schuessler was hooking my design, Have Ye Any Wool

Vicki Hardcastle was working on Trout, a Keith Kemmer design.

Nola was working on a Cactus Needle design called Peacock Plantation.  She really got a lot accomplished!

I will post more pictures of camp tomorrow.

There might be a major announcement this week-end!   *wink, wink*
