Help us Build Out this Resources Section!

We’ll be inviting folks who present at Guild Events to send us any handouts, a bibliography or just a list of links to other websites related to their presentation.

Other guild members are also welcome to help build out this Resource Section — perhaps an annotated list of web links to your favorite Rug Hooking sites?

Please send ideas and/or content to Barb Ackemann or Kris McDermet.
