I hope you
enjoy looking at the hand-hooked rugs, kits and hand-dyed wool that are on the
Hooking rugs is the most rewarding craft I believe I
have ever learned. For years I've worked on needlepoint, quilting and wool
applique following my mother's love of the crafts and of antiques; our home was
full of them. But rug hooking has 'hooked' me. The possibilities of design are
endless, whether whimsical, primitive or traditional. You don't have to have an
art background to learn how to hook rugs or even draw your own designs. Ideas
can come from anywhere: children's books, magazines, your children's drawings.
Let your imagination flow but most of all 'have fun'.
All of my designs are
hand drawn to give a more primitive look that I love. The majority of the
rug-hooking patterns are my original drawings although I have added a few
adaptations of antique rugs or signs. It's my hope that you check back often as
I update my site adding new patterns and supplies so check in and see what's
new! If there are designs or products you would like me to include on my site,
please send me a note under contact us.
studio is located in my home in Warren County, New Jersey just minutes from
Route 78 and I welcome you to come browse, join a class or just have a cup of
coffee and discuss our love of rug-hooking. Although my studio is small it's
full of wool, both dyed and off-the-bolt, patterns, supplies and other tidbits.
You'll find me either drawing patterns, dying wool or teaching a class so come
and have some fun.
My studio is in my home so I am open and available any day of the week with just a little advance notice; with a phone call or an e-mail just to make sure that I am here. Please contact me with any questions you may
