Traditional Rug Hooking – Learning The Basics with Holly Kingdon of the Sheep Creek Weavers

Rug Hooking is a traditional fibre art that frees you to follow your imagination. Using new and recycled fabric, you can create beautiful rugs and wall hangings the hooked way. This is not latch hook! In this class you will learn the basics of rug hooking. From the basic materials and equipment you need and beyond! After choosing from given designs, you will learn how to transfer the design to the backing and, finally, how to hook it. You will never be held back by having to buy a pattern or kit. You will surely be hooked! Some supplies required.
