The Life Styles area was composed of several large tents. Ours even had a wooden floor (the only one I saw that did). This tent housed the rug hookers, quilters, spinners, lace makers, knitters felters and all things fibre.
It was so big, you could hardly see from one end to the other. The quilts hung in the centre and rug hooking including the Barn Project took up one end. Booths and demonstrations from the various member groups of SCACA (Simcoe County Arts and Crafts Association) were down this side. All the rugs and quilts were securely wrapped in plastic to prevent any possible damage. (But made them very hard to photograph). Here is a small sampling of the quilts.
I find it fascinating to watch the spinners.
Jean and I were demonstrating hooking (In the only warm corner in the tent)….everyone else had several layers of clothing.
….and just outside the tent was a quilt made of mums on a very large bed (81 pots of mums to be exact).
So now it’s back to normal and looking forward to R.U.G. on Oct. 4th
