Sauder rug hooking week

Our trip to Rug hooking week in Archbold Ohio was so interesting. I went thinking I was going to enjoy the vendors and the displays, but found learning was so much more fun. This display was a hoot. There was nothing politically correct about this rug artist.
James and Mercedes Hutchinson were husband and wife who commissioned rugs for a period of 20 years 1920s to 1950s. They designed the rugs together.

One of their rugs is for sale for 4800.00  or this one for 6875.00

I wonder if this was displayed in their home, just how lively was their  Thanksgiving family dinner.

I had occasion to want this rug for my own. enough said.
Every rug in the collection was so unique, but the colors and design were consistent.

This was an exceptionally hooked rug. The details were amazing.

On our way home, there was a storm and then this...

Everything should end with a rainbow..
