Sauder Village Is Around The Corner!

In two weeks, I'll be packing my van and getting ready to set up and decorate my booth at Sauder Village.  We will have a different look there but it will still have the Spruce Ridge feel to it.  I am working on some beautiful new tablecloths (does anyone look at them?-I don't know) and I'm gathering up some new display pieces.  It's fun for me because I get to dig out all those great vintage pieces that I have stashed away.  I love all things from yesteryear!  My husband laughs at me because when we go antiquing, I am always saying "this would make a great display piece!"  It seems like I can't look at vintage things any other way.
 We will also have some great new merchandise.  I'm keeping it a secret for now...but wait until you see it!  I love the new stuff and I know you will too.  Just like Christmas morning, the anticipation is building!

One thing is for sure, we will have 6 new Notforgotten Farm patterns.  Actually, there are 7 but one is new to us...another mystery that you will have to come and find out for yourself! I have been working non-stop drawing patterns.  I hope you find your favorite....I can't bring them all but I've been stocking up on the most popular ones.
I am teaching a class on hooking 3 different kinds of eyes at Sauder on Friday evening.  The class is full but you can always inquire about the waiting list.  I will have a few extra kits from the class available for sale in my booth on Saturday.  The kit will contain a linen pattern and uncut wool and handouts.  Another secret...even the class has not seen the project yet.  Oh how I love surprises!!!!

PS:  I'll be doing a book signing too.  I believe it is scheduled for Wednesday but check the posted schedule to be sure.  I'd love to meet you and sign your copy of Introduction To Rug Hooking.  If you don't have one, you can buy it from me!
