Show and class schedule for Little House Rugs

Stash Sheep Kit

Most of us fiber addicts have a yarn stash. (I pause while you nod your head.) You may think you can hide from all that beautiful yarn you have stuffed into boxes and bags in the shadiest corner of your closet, but the reality persists. You feel guilty when you think about it. You know you should take it out and play with it. What to do with all that gorgeous fiber? Make a rug!

This year’s featured beginner kit is the Stash Sheep Kit. It includes a wide range of yarn types, including handspun yarn, Halcyon yarn, lopi, Peace Fleece, Cascade Ecological and many others. It is designed to give you a chance to hook with a variety of yarns, many of which are already in your stash.

Here are the scheduled classes for 2016 (see complete show schedule at the end of this post):

Black Sheep Gathering, June 26, 9-noon.  http://www.blacksheepgathering.org/workshops.html#Sunday_morning

Weaving Works, Seattle, WA, June 30, 12-3  http://weavingworks.com/collections/classes/products/16q2-rug-hooking

Oregon Flock and Fiber, Canby, OR  September 23, 9-noon  http://flockandfiberfestival.com/

Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival, The Dalles, OR  Oct. 28 1:30-4:30, Oct. 29 8:30-11:30  http://columbiagorgefiberfestival.com/

Of course, you don’t need to take a class to learn the craft. If you cannot make it to a class, you can order the kit and do it yourself. The kit includes rug hooking instructions, but if you order the Special Package, you will get the book Joy of Hooking (With Yarn!) and a rug hook, which will provide you with everything you need to know about how to get started in this wonderful craft.

  1. Thanks for giving me courage and encouragement. I’m a hand-spinner with a huge stash. I’ve always wanted to hook with yarn. I don’t own much wool clothing and cannot wrap my mind around BUYING wool squares to cut up. Punch needle was okay, but I like to work from the front.

    There was finally a rug hooking meetup in NYC, but when I went, I felt very “inauthentic” so I used fabric strips that were on hand. Nope. I really like using my hand-spun. Thanks for letting me know it’s OK.

    I bought some burlap from a craft store to use for rug hooking and would like to know how to get rid of that “burlap smell.” Thanks!
