St.. Louis Hook-In 2012.....

 Saturday was the first St.Louis Hook-in.I think there was between 15 and 18 vender.Here I am getting my booth all set-up.

 Here is looking across one corner of the room to some of the other venders.
 Shopping has started! Lots of great hookers.
 That is Nola Heidbreder with her back to me. She was in the spot next to me.

 Above three pictures are are some on the crowd. They just keep coming. 
 Now for the rug show. They had a contest so the rugs did not have names on them.Hope you enjoy.

 This is the rug that won "People's Choice". It was beautiful.

 My son Aaron help in my booth for a little bit so I could get out and look at the out booths and buy a little wool.

 Few more of the people that come to a hook-in. The ladies that put on this event did a great job.We had a fun time meeting new hookers and making new friends.

Live Deeply and Happy Hooking,

Looks like a wonderful show and lots of beautiful rugs. I really love the wolf rug, really nice work with the shading to bring in the wolf shadows.

Dear Coinguyslady,

My name is Abigail Rogers, and I am contacting you on behalf of my grandfather. He lives in Sulphur Springs, Arkansas, and recently purchased an almost complete hand-hooked rug at an auction. He is looking for someone to finish it and make a few minor repairs. He ran across your blog and was not sure how to contact you, but wanted me to find your email address to see if you knew anyone in the area who would be willing to take on this project. I believe he intends to sell the piece and would be willing to work out a fee for the repairs.

If you can give me any help I would be greatly appreciative! You can email me at: picturingbritain [at] gmail [dot] com

Thank you,
Abigail Rogers
