Big doins’ at Little House Rugs!

First, I have a FREE Beginning Rug Hooking Class on October 29 at the Rockwood Library in Portland, OR. As expected, this class filled up almost as soon as they opened registration, but don’t despair; the last class I taught at the library had six no-shows, so it’s a really good idea to get on the waiting list and to put the event on your calendar, so if you aren’t one of the ones who dove in as soon as it was posted, you may still get to join in this free class! Here’s the link to register: https://multcolib.org/events/beginning-rug-hooking/77600#block-simple-registration-client-register

I have two other beginner’s classes at the Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival in The Dalles, OR, October 27 and 28. The one on the 27th is a class where students will learn to hook with both yarn and wool fabric strips.


Scottie, 10″x10″ Designed and hooked by Judy Taylor This is the kit for my 2017 Beginning Rug Hooking classes, including both yarn and fabric strips so students get to practice both techniques.

And for a crazy new twist in rug hooking, you can try this one; hooking with t-shirt strips! You hook with t-shirts exactly the same way you hook with yarn, so it’s another fun tool to add to your rug hooking! This class will be held on October 28. You can register here: http://columbiagorgefiberfestival.com/product/t-shirt-rugs/

And if you can’t make it to any of those events, why not join me in my booth at Fiber Fusion at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA (http://www.fiberfusion.net/)?

And don’t forget that for every $50 you spend with Little House Rugs (including class fees!) you will be entered to win the Whale Rug (a $450 value!) The drawing will take place on November 25, 2017.

Happy Hooking everyone!

    Do you ever give classes in Canada?

    Hi Judy, I am one of the fortunate people attending your Rockwood class. At our local fiber fest I bought your Joy of Hooking book with a kit. I am so excited to learn from you the art of hooking! Any suggestions on what I should bring to class? Thank you.
