I wanted to share pics of the road trip my friends and I took this past weekend to a beautiful area, Hereford, Pennsylvania. We had two shops in particular that we wanted to go to. I've been to these shops before and have always loved my visits.
First was Homespun, where you can get all things related to punch needle, rug hooking and the finishing materials. This is where I purchased my very first punch needle supplies.
Lots and lots of Wool, Valdani threads, trims, fabric, patterns and booklets. Not to mention displays of antique needlework notions. We spent lots of time looking around and oohing and aahing.....
We all had lots of fun chatting with Kay and getting her input. She even took time to demonstrate how to hook with an Oxford Punch.
I came across this fun hooked rug and was happy to find out it was designed by Kirby Wunder of Wickedly Wunderful Stitches. A friend and fellow member designer of our Facebook Stitching group, Prim Stitchers Society.
It was such a wonderuful and fun filled day. We all went out for an amazing lunch at the Carriage House Restaurant. Delish!
Stay tuned for part 2...
