Holiday Pot Luck 2013

The Tin Pedlars love their Pot Luck meetings. We often celebrate regathering after the summer months with a Pot Luck, but the Dec. meeting is the perfect time for celebrating our mutual interest in rug hooking and the friendships developed around that. December 2013 was no different. We relaxed enjoying hooking, ty chatting, door prizes and wonderful food.fd 
We also had a first “Marketplace” where members offered a variety of items from frames to hooks, patterns and books for sale.

The Benson Family from the Gorham, Maine area joined us to share some special rugs. This farming family had a father who was a designer and rug hooker. Sadly he passed away years ago, but his wife and daughters shared some of his rugs with us. Many of his rugs have been given to family members and are all over the country. Here are photos of some shared with us:
