Hosted yearly by Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia has so much to offer.
While there for the first time this year I tjought I would drop by some of the classes and give you some idea of what it is like.
Susie Stephenson owner and creator of Stephenson Fiber Arts located in Maine USA was this years teacher of Folk Art.
I visited Susie’s class several times over the week and took a few photos and Susie allowed me to listen in and even gave me a chair.
The lighthearted banter and laughter as people learned to set their imaginations free to create was so inspiring I just wanted to be part of it. This class is guaranteed to be a great memory for everyone who participates!
Susie’s colorful, vibrant and whimsical personality is contagious! From her colorful wool dreadlocks to her homespun and knit tights and socks Susie glows in creativity! She brought samples of her rugs and creative art for the students to see, all will make you smile and let go of the stresses of life.

Sometimes is is fun to try new things.
Here I put a wool applique/needle felted combo together and tried applying a sashing as in quilting.
I stretched this only artist canvas frame.
I made many mistakes that I can fix next time. Here is what I would fix.
- Allow lots of background left over for adding more rows of sashing.
- Use a stabilizer of some sort, iron on I think.
- Take better measurements...Measure twice and cut once!
