The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers' Triennial Conference 2015 in Victoria, BC, Canada

This year's Triennial Conference of The International Guild of Hand-hooking Rugmakers (TIGHR) has wrapped up in Victoria, British Columbia (Canada). Not many attendees are using social media yet, but enough were that I thought it worthwhile to compile the tweets and photos.

  3. I'm home...and knee deep in getting things ready for my trip to Victoria (I'll be on a plane again in less than a week!). It's going to be a whirlwind 3 hour jewellery class at TIGHR...but hopefully the time I'm spending putting kits together today will simplify things. #handdyedwool #tighr
