New Article in Rug Hooking Magazine

As of January 2020, Hooking With Yarn has moved and has a new name, Rug Hooking Adventures. Same monthly posting, with tips & techniques, Featured Rug of the Month, web specials and more (just no more pesky ads!). Click here to sign up for the new blog. Thanks!

It’s always a thrill to get an article published, but it’s just icing on the cake to get the cover of the magazine too! In the latest issue of Rug Hooking Magazine, I got to do an article on hooking with T-shirts. In it, you’ll find the design on the cover, which you can enlarge to make your own Ma Jolie Fleur rug.

This month, I’ll be at Oregon Flock & Fiber in Canby, OR. I’ll have my booth on the weekend, and I’ll also be teaching Beginning Rug Hooking on Friday afternoon.

With this class, students will learn all three techniques (hooking with yarn, T-shirt strips and wool fabric strips), so they can hook with anything, which is a great thing when designing new projects.

If you can’t make the class in Canby, I’ll be teaching it again in Port Gamble, WA on October 26. You can get info and sign up here.

Check out this month’s Featured Rug. It’s another first rug by Karen West of Seattle, WA. Do you have a rug you would like to see featured on www.littlehouserugs.com? Email me! Every rug has a story and we love to hear all about them. If your rug is featured, you will receive your choice of a free half-yard of linen or our recycled cotton rug hooking bag (says “FIBER is good for you!), so what are you waiting for?

Happy Hooking everyone!

Judy Taylor
