Volume XXXII, Number 2
September/October 2020

[On the Cover]
Scenes of My Childhood, designed and hooked by Grace Collette. 

Are you ready for fall? This issue brings you a pattern for a stunning Autumn Rose for you to hook in your chosen colors. And just because the a few of the articles call for “poison” and “the scary edge,” doesn’t mean you should shy away! As always, our “poison” advice is quite useful, as is the story about a daunting (scary) edge to whip. Look for a proddy bouquet and a group COVID-19 rug, a paisley pattern, and a sweet goodbye from a long-time rug hooker. Be sure to get your copy of our fall issue!
