We had a great time at the first one last year. If you live in the Houston Area which for Texans means San Antonio (shout out to Cora) and beyond, this year we'll be having two rug displays. Here is a tiny peek at my rug for the challenge. It's way bigger than last year's, and called "Cape Town Musicians" .
Below is a copy of the email sent out to people who attended last year or are current members of Kirby Hooking Circle. It has a delightful graphic at the top that didn't make it!
