Remember that Saturday Night Live skit by Hanz and Franz.....
"We want to Pump.....you up!"
Well that's how I feel every year when I attend the Winter Woolen Workshop.
I get all pumped up, excited, and a bit overwhelmed by everything I see, learn, and want to make.
I do believe for as long as I've been blogging, I've been telling you about the Winter Woolen Workshop. It takes place in two mansions in Kokomo, IN, that are right next door to each other. They are The Seiberling Mansion and The Elliot House.
It's always in February.
And it was yesterday and today (Sunday).
You missed yesterday, but there is plenty of time to attend today. Sunday 11-5.
There is a $15 admission fee.
Here are a few pics I took yesterday. I kept walking around with my camera, but I kept getting side-tracked and forgetting to take pictures!
So here I am showing a young lady how to spin. She loved it!
There are a lot of demonstrations going on at the Seiberling Mansion.
If you want to learn to quilt, knit, rug hook, bead, embroider, etc, Etc., ETC!....
Click "HERE" to see more details....
I want to show you some pictures of the stuff for sale.
Lots and lots of wool. This is only one of several booths of wool.
It's great for rug hooking, rug punch, applique, and sewing.
Ephemera items, journals, cards, tags, scrapbooking items, bags,
and other fun primitives. I love the crow!
There is a booth full of yarn, knitting needles, yarn bags,
and other booths with yarn bowls, and
Plus roving for spinning. Tons and Tons of roving.
(see that grayish colored apron to the right. I bought it right off the mannequin)
and soap makers.
Here are a few of the rug hooked items. Some are for sale and some are display only, but the patterns are for sale.
One of many booths of rug hook/punch patterns for sale.
The Granny Bee's page, you will also see that there are classes you can take at this event. Most of them require pre-registration. However, I heard one of the teachers tell someone yesterday that she had an extra "kit" and she'd let her take the class even though she didn't pre-register. So there is a chance you can still take a class.
Now, let me show you my purchases. (I don't have time to flip this pic!) I have to get ready to go!
Lots of patterns. Yes I bought them all! Well, they were on clearance!
This is a journal. I love the fabric they covered it in. The lady told me that a friend of hers bought an old rug. The friend took the rug apart, unrolled all of the fabric, stitched it all together and made a big sheet of fabric and gave it to her. (her as in the lady with the booth) She covered this journal with the fabric and no I didn't need a journal, I just love these colors.
All of the stuff I bought came to right under $100.00. There are some good deals to be had, and the best part...lots of women having fun and laughing (alot) and sharing ideas!
Come by and get pumped up for hand made!
See you there!
