new hooking book - and it's Canadian!

In case you haven't heard, there's a new book about the hooked carousel project. Wanda Wallace and her husband have created and printed books featuring all of the hooked horses and sharing the stories from their creators.

Hearing the stories behind the hooked pieces is one of my favourite parts of rug hooking get togethers.....and now you can read your leisure! It's a great keepsake for participants and non-participants alike.

The books are 8.5" by 5.5" and each horse has his/her own page...and the facing page holds the artist's story. Copies are only $20 + postage...and it's a great way to support our Canadian endeavours. If you're interested in a copy, Wanda will be bringing some with her to Trent next week or you can contact her directly at wanda DOT john AT onlink DOT net
