Some of you may recall that last fall or winter I was selling a partially finished (just started, really) braided rug and all the materials to go with it because I knew I just wouldn't have time to complete it.

So happy to see it finished by a person who knew exactly what to do. If you see Sherri at the Belfast Hook In this weekend, be sure to compliment her on this beautiful project. ... See MoreSee Less

About a year ago or so I taught the most wonderful group of young women at the Rochester Institute of Technology how to hook, and I am happy to say that some of them are still at it. At RIT the students (my son, Peter, being one of them) are primarily becoming educated for careers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, & math), but do not believe for an instant that those students are not also gifted in the arts.
