PREPARING for a RUG SHOW

MONTREAL  HOOKED RUG  EXHIBITION 
30 APRIL -8th MAY

Today some of us are getting rugs together for the upcoming  show . . . at first it seems easy but then we quickly realize that there are so many little things to finish!
Binding the rugs,
whipping,
making and sewing on labels,
photographing rugs,
filling out forms . . .
getting them to the show on hanging day!
and - NOT  forgetting anything . . . .
For many, it is the first time showing their mats . . . thats why entering in a show is  so great . . . it forces one to get it all finished and together . . . .
Making labels is important as all the information is there for the future  . . . . the past history or story of the maker of the rug . . ..ask a quilt appraiser if this is not important!!

The St HENRI  RUG SHOW starts  Friday the 30 April with a vernisage at 5 pm
ADDRESS is  75  rue  Sir Georges Etienne Cartier in the  Centre  St ZOTIQUE at the corner of St AMBROISE  street - near the Lachine Canal
go to Google MAPS for directions . . .

Hope  all interested in rug hooking in Montreal can get there!
The Show runs until 8th MAY
