RUG HOOKED WORK IN FIBER ART NOW MAGAZINE, STUDIO NEWS, WORKSHOPS




"City Crossing" is pictured in the On View section of Fiber Art Now Magazine's Summer 2015 issue.  The topic for the section is Sojourn and features thirteen other artists.  Please check out this section along with the rest of the magazine. This is one magazine I always read cover to cover.  If you do not subscribe, you can do so at Fiber Art Now.

Also in the issue is Line Dufour's Fate, Destiny and Self Determination project on page 50. I had a great time participating in this project which features the works of numerous fiber artists and love the way Line put everything together for it.  You can check out the project more closely and see some of the entries by clicking here. 

One section of  "Bridging the Gap" in progress,  11 X 11,  Lori LaBerge  2015

This work will consist of two sections connected with metal bars.  It was designed quite a while back and will look similar to the drawing I made in Photoshop below when completed.

These are the colors chosen for the work.

Lots of deliveries were made to the studio this week:

 Supplies delivered for workshops.  

I will be teaching two workshops this year.  One is a class on creating a series of work that will be taught at Sauder Village in Ohio during August.  Information on the class can be seen at Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week.  Join us if you have the chance.

The other will be on composition in plein air work done through theThe International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers.  It will be held in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in October.  There are many outstanding rug hookers in this group.  If you are interested in learning more about the guild you can go to TIGHR and check out the gallery of work by clicking on the word "gallery" in the navigation bar.


Posters I ordered arrived rolled in their tubes.  These will be used to discuss composition and landscapes for classes.

Plan out your next project or order some supplies to set up your own mini-retreat at home and have a great day.
