Hello my fellow hookers!

Our meeting yesterday was awesome! As always, the yard sale was lots of fun, and there was a load of goodies!

Barb and Jill presented an amazing program on what it takes to become a McGown-certified teacher... For those who missed the meeting, it takes FIVE YEARS! Projects are assigned to you, such as: hook this piece in a fine cut, this one in a primitive cut, hook these fruit or these vegetables, hook this one only in secondary colors AND you have to dye all the wool! And you have to hook this piece and teach it - to a class of 15 McGown-certified teachers... And must prepare a notebook with complete instructions on how you did everything associated with that piece. A notebook don well enough that the piece could be replicated by another hooker, without you.


And yet after all that Barb and Jill seem so sane!

They mentioned a great resource - The McGown Guild. I'd heard of it, but assumed (yes, I know!) you had to be a McGown teacher. If you're interested, here's a link:

See you next month!!
