Rug Hooking Daily

I have taken over management of an online Rug Hooking social network called Rug Hooking Daily, which is a vibrant community of 9100-plus rug hookers! In addition to the main group, there are dozens of other smaller groups (Hooking Primitives, Audio Books to Hook By, Gentleman Rug Hookers, All About Patterns, Yarn Hookers, Dyeing, You Can Do It, and so many more) that you can join and share your projects and questions with others who love rug hooking as much as you do! It’s free to join, so check it out!

This month’s Featured Rug covers the topic of un-hooking and re-hooking your rugs. In the Tree of Life rug above, I decided that the night sky was altogether too purple (Van Gogh might have been able to get away with a purple night sky, but it didn’t work for me!). Even though I had already hemmed the rug and bound the edges, I was still able to unhook and rehook to make the sky more blue.

This kind of thing can come up in the life of a hand-hooked rug. Maybe you’ve moved to a new home, or you are redecorating, and find that old rug just doesn’t match your current color scheme. One of the great things about hooked rugs is that you can always refurbish them to match your décor. You can read more about re-hooking here.

This month I’ll be teaching at the Black Sheep Gathering in Albany, OR (June 29-July 1)and I’ll also have a booth, so if you’re in the area, stop in and say hi!

    I just found your site and am very excited for two specific reasons.
    First, I have been hooking for 20 years,more recently than previously, and your Hooking With Wool book is one I thoroughly enjoyed.
    Second…I am in the process of moving to Guatemala in May and was wondering how & with what I was going to hook. Your new book on using t -shirts has given me my answer!
