..........to Shady Hill Rug Hooking
My website name describes where I live. On a hill, shaded by old oak trees, in a home with a beautiful porch where I can hook rugs.
The art of traditional rug hooking has been around for hundreds of years. Creating a hand hooked rug is still being done today as it was long ago, with the simple tool of a hook and strips of cloth. Now it is considered an art form. Rug hooking has no limit for creativity and imagination.
I hope you enjoy looking at the hand-hooked rugs, hand-dyed wool, rug hooking patterns and appliqué patterns that are on the following pages.
These rugs all speak for themselves, you don't need me to add description. I do want to point out the winner of the exhibit, voted on by all attendees. In the top photo, left side, "The Fish", hooked by Judy Sierota of The Villages, Florida. Congratulations Judy!
Thank you to everyone who visited my booth. I enjoyed meeting you all and look forward to seeing you next year, or sooner. A huge THANKS to Julie and Chris who worked so hard to make everything pleasant for the vendors, teachers, and hook-in participants.
And a special thanks to my sister, Betty, who came from Arizona to help me in my booth. Betty kept me organized, calm and well hydrated for the event. Thanks Betty!
