The Rural Art Center wants to remind everyone that the Lorane Rug Hookery group (they call themselves the Rug Hookers) is actively meeting again. Their evening meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Lorane Fire Hall.
The morning get-togethers are from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. at the Lorane Rebekah Hall at 80284 Old Lorane Rd. Please let them know if you are planning to attend one of the meetings by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be sure bring the materials that you need. They will also add you to their reminder list.
Items that you will need to bring are: scissors, cheater glasses if you wear them, any of your own equipment if you have it, including a rug hook, a hooking frame or sturdy embroidery hoop. Starter hooks are available for $6 or can be borrowed and you can rent a hooking frame from the group for $10 per month.
The group has also put together kits which include backing material with a design drawn on it and wool strips to hook into it for $5.50 for 8″ x 8″ square burlap and $8.50 for the same size primitive linen. At the meetings will be two strip cutters for you to use to turn your own wool into strips. These kits are a bargain compared to those you can buy on-line. The group has put them together in order to “get you hooked.” More info can be found on their website at http://www.ruralartcenter.org/#!programs/c1t44.
Spring break for the C-A-L schools begin Monday, March 21 through Friday, March 25. Yeah!
We are delighted to hear that two Crow High School students have won honors for their short stories as a part of the Eugene-based Wordcrafters Annual Writers Conference. Wordcrafters is made up of a group of professional writers, publishers, speakers, teachers and business people from the Pacific Northwest.
For the high school division, Crow High sophomore, Hunter Black placed 3rd with is story, “Copenhagen Estates,” and Rylan Larsen’s story, “A Dream at Death’s Door: The Long Flight” took 1st place. These prestigious awards were presented at the UO Baker Center. Congratulations Rylan and Hunter!
I hope everyone enjoyed their two days of sunshine this past week. Unfortunately, we haven’t had the opportunity to take advantage of the sunny days to mow lawns. I am going to be so far behind the 8-ball! Spring’s a comin’!
