Sauder Village 19th Annual Rug Hooking Awards
for 20



Wool Bomb Tree

The Sauder Award is presented for the piece that best exemplifies the spirit and mission of Sauder Village.  The Celebrations 25th Anniversary “Wool Bomb” giant tree was made with leaves hooked by 25 years of Celebrations Rug Winners to represent the more than 850 celebrations finalists and honorable mentions who have been featured in Rug Hooking Magazine.

The Tree is symbolic of the Great Oak Tree at the Sauder Heritage Inn at Sauder Village, which stands 25 feet tall.  The Great Oak Tree has played a special role in Rug Hooking Week as a place for rug hookers to gather for breakfast & lunch, show their projects and meet & hook rugs with friends.

The Sauder Award was given to this special exhibit for the sense of community that this tree signifies and the fine craftsmanship and artistry it represents.  Rug Hookers from across the nation and internationally came together to bring this tree to “life”.
