This is the entrance to Ault's...I love the Rug Hooking sign..it sets the tone as soon as you walk into the shop..of course all of the gorgeous wool you see in the baskets below...sets a tone too...you want to have it all!!! But then, the cross stitched phrase below.."Never Enough Thyme" kind of brings you back down to earth..Gloria and Larry Ault are such wonderful & graceful hosts! Their shop is just beautiful...so warm, so comfortable. There was so much attention given to every detail! They checked on us (and there were 16 hookers in all), to see if we needed anything. The fridge was stocked with water & soda, the coffee pot served endless cups of coffee. Gloria served bagels, scones, pastries in the morning as we arrived on both mornings. Then for lunch we had wonderful sandwiches from a local sandwich shop.

There were hookers from Minnesota, Missouri, Michigan, and Ohio. The weather wasn't the best....but nothing can stop a dedicated hooker!! Please enjoy the pictures...I know this post is long, but....I just didn't want to leave anything out! I will post pics of my rug later this week...Enjoy!

I would love to go to a class like that and the shop is wonderful. I really want the chest on top of the apothecary, exactly the type I am looking for;)

It looks like you had a wonderful time.
I love talking to new people re: any craft that I'm working on. Maybe it will help inspire them to work on something also.

Bobbie, thanks for sharing all of the pictures and info on the class. I saw it advertised on Ault's site a few months ago and thought it would be fabulous. Can't wait to see your rug!!!
