..........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.
Excited to be at the Harvest Hook-in in Brewer Maine this weekend. The venue was packed with enthusiastic fiber artists meeting up with friends, shopping for new patterns and wool in every color imaginable. We will all be back tomorrow!
Thanks to Julie and Chris from Searsport Rug Hooking for organizing this wonderful event!
We all need great blues and greens in our stash. Yards and yards of hand-dyed wool are piling up for the upcoming events.
These wrinkles drive me crazy. Sooner or later the wrinkles relax and become smoother. Either way, these colors will hook up beautifully.
