About Site - In January 2000, my good friend Mary introduced me to the art of rug hooking. Smitten after pulling one square inch of loops, I hooked feverishly through the night and saw the sun come up. I teach an informative and fun filled three hour beginning class that focuses strictly on the technique of rug hooking. It covers proper loop formation by hooking straight lines, wavy lines and circles.

About Site - I have been making hooked art and rugs for many years. I love what I do. Every aspect of creating a piece is fulfilling. It is always exciting for me to watch an idea evolve from start to finish. At times, when I begin a piece it is just a shadow of an idea, but as I proceed, transferring the initial sketch to the linen backing, selecting the colors and textures of wool, to finally hooking.

About Site - 'When the kids are out of the house' I am going to hook rugs. That was my idea when I first saw rug hooking at art exhibits, craft shows and in antique stores. When we moved to Ocala Florida in 2005 the Community College was holding a 'Hand Hooked Rug' exhibit in their art gallery. How lucky was I! Timing was right, location was right. My rug hooking adventure was about to begin!
