the shop: supplies and instruction
You may visit my home studio by appointment. I don’t have regular open hours, but I always have primitive linen, lots of wool, hooks, hoops, frames and kits for sale.
• Hand-dyed 100% new wool fabric
• Treasure hunt finds: the visual texture of reclaimed tweeds, as-is or overdyed
• Primitive linen foundation 60 inches wide, cut to any size you want and priced accordingly – no waste yardage.
Tools: Hand-turned hooks, lap frames with gripper strip, and floor frames, all of native maple and cherry hardwood, angled whipping needles, assorted sizes of hoops
Kits: Complete with linen pattern, rug photo, hooking instructions, cut wool strips, whipping yarn and needle, hoop and hook, all in a clear zipper bag. Sizes: Small, Medium, and Large
Instruction and Demos:
Individual or group instruction is available in a relaxed setting. Learn the basics in 5 minutes, or settle into your hooking chair for a dose of rug hooking history at my studio or your site. Locations for past and future hooking demonstrations or classes are: Old Mill Studio, Whitefield NH; Old Stone House Museum, Brownington VT; North of the Falls, Bradford VT; Billings Farm Museum, Woodstock VT; Tunbridge Fair, Tunbridge VT; Burklyn Craft Fair, Lyndonville VT; Foliage Festival events in St. Johnsbury, Danville, and Barnet VT. Let me know if you would like to set up a class or rug hooking demonstration.
