Camarillo, CA

Camarillo, CA by Martha Whelchel

This is a postcard from Camarillo, CA. It is a small farm town between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. We have the Pacific Ocean on one side of the 101 freeway and mountains on the other. Farming is our main industry. We grow lemons, avocados, strawberries, lettuce, and tomatoes–everything for a good salad. We are the home of U.C. Channel Islands. We have an airport the U.S. Air Force left us after WWII, so there are lots of small plane activities here. It is a good place to live and raise children. Martha Whelchel

Postcards From California

I Left My Heart in San Francisco by Jo Franco

Location: Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California

This card is hooked on Hessian with hand-dyed, one-hundred-percent-wool carpet yarn from New Zealand—a “leftover” recycled from a carpet company—and sari silk offcuts.

Jo Franco, Perth, Western Australia

I was very excited to receive postcards all the way from Australia hooked by Jo Franco. Jo is an active member of The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers (TIGHR).
