A Celebration of "Celebration"
Wool bomb for our 25th anniversary
When you want to do something special for a rug-hooking anniversary, who do you call to brainstorm? Why Kathy Wright, of course! The highly respected director of Rug Hooking Week at Sauder Village and longtime friend of RHM and Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs wanted to help make this a special year for the Celebration exhibition at Rug Hooking Week.
Weeks and phone calls later, it all came together—a Wool Bomb! Drawing from the “yarn bomb” tradition of knitters and crocheters who create “street art” with yarn, we expanded the concept to include fibers of all kinds, but especially our beloved wool noodles.
We sent out the call, and nearly 200 Celebration artists responded with fun, amazing, and exquisite 12" x 18" leaves, to be assembled and displayed in the exhibit hall at Rug Hooking Week 2015.
