2020 Activities

Friday night after the first 2 hours in class, everyone meets for a Wine and Cheese Reception. Meet all your old friends and make some new ones!

Our theme for activities for 2020 is Spirit Animal or Patronus!
The party and banquet Monday night will also be centered around the theme, with ad-hoc groups performing skits, dances and songs. The 8″ mats created for the Challenge Rug Mat Swap are also based on this theme and exchanged during this time.

Bring your unwanted hooking or craft materials and equipment. Volunteers assemble baskets of goods that students attempt to win through the purchase of tickets. Proceeds help Prairie Harvest.

GARAGE SALE   Students all have an opportunity to sell unused or second-hand hooking supplies, dyed or recycled wool or any craft materials, or hand crafted items.

MAT SWAP You can join the challenge by creating a hooked 8″x8″ mat based on the theme. These will be exchanged at the banquet, and you will take home a mat hooked by another student.

RUG SHOW  Please bring one or more rugs for the rug show which will be held for one day at the School. These should be finished and ready to hang. We will provide labels for you to complete to identify your rugs.

VENDORS Vendors specializing in dyed wool, frames, hoops and other rug hooking items have tables of goods for sale.

WOOL DRAW  Students can participate in a draw for bundles of wool fabric strips. A ticket to win a bundle is given with each 3″x12″ strip of new wool.

VOLUNTEERS All these fun activities are the result of careful planning and work by a team of volunteers led by the Entertainment Committee. If you are interested in helping out please let the Registrar know.
