Holiday Open House in Worthington was a success! The Holy Hookers had a rug display! Enjoy the pix...

Jane, Mike, Chuck & Deb had the lobby of Select Insurance in Worthington decorated for Christmas with this wonderful tree as the centerpiece. It was a great space for this display! Words can't express my appreciation for all they did to make the Holy Hookers rug show possible.

Rugs were displayed on this large green work table with matching chairs. My "Scrappy Squares" rug in on the floor below.

A couple of the rugs were displayed on this old office desk. My picnic basket with "Cat's Paws" lid sits below.

A general view of our display showing the antique office furniture that we were able to utilize.

Another view of the display in the lobby of Select Insurance.

Debbie and I worked together for this show. We demonstrated hooking and greeted people as they came in. A small door prize (a little mat) was given away. Deb works at Select Insurance and her help was invaluable. She served cookies and spiced cider from a decorated table. She completed this rug, called "Sheep with Flower Cart", early this year. It's displayed on an antique slant-top desk.

Becky's pillow (a gift to her Mother) was displayed on an old office chair.

Jane hooked this large chair pad from a Margo White design called "Springtime".

I brought this "Twin Cats" rug; thought the red and green colors would be appropriate. This rug is based on an antique pattern.

Since it was a holiday open house we had a couple of Christmas pieces. This "Folkart Santa" was done by Jane. It is a big rug and very impressive. Jane does excellent work!

This sweet little Santa chair pad is by Debbie; it was bound in homespun.

Jacque's "Running Horse" is a beauty! This was one of Jacque's first rugs and she did a great job. It is displayed on a table marked "free" ... and of course it flew out of there!

This little "Pumpkin Mat" was done by Nancy. She is a busy working woman and doesn't get to hook as much as she would like ... But she is very good at what she does.

Becky's "Pot of Posies" is a wonderful shape, don't you think? (Would make a good door topper.) Becky is a very precise hooker and I don't think she even needs to steam her rugs they are so even when she's done. Displayed on an antique office desk.

Jane had this wonderful table and chairs set up. Her "My Three Sons" rug is on top and my own four "Star" chair pads are on each chair (red, green, copper and gray).
BTW ... this table/chairs was for sale for $75 which I assume was snapped right up ...

I don't know what Jane calls this, but I entitled it "Moby Dick (the great white whale)". It is a cute little mat. Would be nice used as a table topper.

Stephanie's "July Cabin" was finished early this year. She entered it in the Owen County Fair this summer and received a blue ribbon! Way to go Steph!

This crescent shaped rug is called "Flowers in Bloom". Teresa found this old pattern and finished it this summer. I especially love the wool she chose for the border.

Deb hooked this "Flower Basket" mat and had it finished just in time for the show. Great job Debbie!

This rug is called "Cat's Paws" and was hooked by Becky. It is her own design and color plan. She has a wonder color sense!
