The one thing that all spinners, weavers, dyers, felters, knitters, hookers—need I go on—share is a love of our base material. Perhaps that is why we are so nutty about rug hooking around here. The materials and designs so enticing! If you aren’t familiar with the process (and even if you are) you will enjoy the resources on our rug hooking how to get started page. In particular, check out the video by Gene Shepherd, who gives a great demonstration on the beauty and basics of the craft.
We want to give one lucky reader/fan/follower a chance to win an adorable beginning rug-hooking kit featured in our last blog. Simply post a comment about any rug hooking expereinces you have had even if it is none! We will pick a winner a week from now (no foolin’). It’s time to get hooked!
Leslie Samson Workshops
Speaking of beautiful, enticing materials we are thrilled to host the marvelous felter Leslie Samson in May. Leslie has taken felting to another level with her exquisite approachable designs. Leslie is a master at wet, needle, and nuno felting. Felt wool and beyond, by making wearables to wall pieces. Leslie will teach three workshops: Botanical Felting, Scribble Lace Scarf, and Felted Tapestry. (You might even spot a bunny or two hopping around.)
We would love to see you here in May or any other time! Of course we can visit online anytime.
Chris, Nancy, and the entire Woolery team

They work up fast so you get a lot of satisfaction in a short amount of time. There are so many reasons to make rugs!
