August at Pastimes PEI – new hookers, new hooking frames, new wools

11 Aug

Barry made a couple of frames so we would have some for sale again; they go pretty fast sometimes. Emmalee had to walk through and sit on one as you can see. We have lots of new wool fabric in and lots of it will be dyed to make fantastic wool colors for hooking.



today Jack is helping us teach a couple of beginners

 Sometimes we teach one-on-one classes to people on an hourly rate/basis. We do not teach regular classes as a rule because we would be doing it all the time and never have time to hook. We do help out at local Community Schools – adult education evening classes in the fall. We all have teaching backgrounds: I worked in extension education with Women’s Institute, 4-H and other groups; Heather works in agriculture-related field, mainly in extension for many years, and Bette teaches Home Economics in High School. Just to let you know what we are all about.

I took this picture of the house the other day. Barry is forever working on the outside to keep it looking good. 

When you call on us, you can see the house and all our pets. Ducky is one.

We have a lovely flower garden too; no time to do anything but run the tiller through it.

You will not believe this. A woman who was born in this house in the thirties came here to see it again. and we had a stick of wood with her father’s name and address stenciled on it; they climbed up on the building and took it with them so that all four generations of the family visiting here to PEI can enjoy it as we did while it was here with us. Barry found it in the eaves of the house a few years ago.



all for the cause….
