Monica At Cambria

Since Show and Tell is a big part of rug camp, I will do my best to show you more of what students did in each of the separate classes at CPRC 2013.  One reader commented yesterday that it would be good to show both the name of the designer and the name of artist doing each […]

Longest Day at CPRC

Wednesday is the hardest day at Cambria Pines rug camp … if any day in paradise could really be considered hard.  We certainly have to juggle several hats in order to get everything done that has to be done.   The first order of business, of course, is a day of hooking.  Every body shows […]

Made By Many Hands

While I usually concentrate on getting  good close up shots of show-rugs, this year, I also got several images of rugs alongside their makers.  In doing a post on this theme, it not only underscores the fact everything in our show is handmade by an artist, it also honors all participants, not just the ones […]

The Cambria Rug Show

Wednesday is the BIG day at CPRC.  Not to imply that one day is more important than another, this is the most strenuous day – it takes a lot of big energy to get it all done.  We no sooner eat breakfast than shoo everyone out of the dining hall so the lodge staff can […]

Tuesday at Cambria Pines Rug Camp

A day at Cambria Pines Rug Camp is not very old before campers are in class and hooking away on their projects. Although some early birds are hooking when I arrive in the lodge, most drift into class after breakfast. The “special event” each Tuesday at CPRC is the student sale.  As many of our […]
