Learn traditional rug hooking using wool strips on a linen backing. Kathleen Eckhaus will give a brief history of this American craft, review tools and materials needed, and familiarize you with the steps necessary to design a rug. There will be several types of frames and hooks to try and an array of samples for demonstration.

  • You will have two designs to choose upon registration. (see link above and select to add to cart)
  • Using frames and hooks provided for class use, you will begin hooking your piece while learning everything need to know to make a rug.
Please bring a small pair of sharp scissors to cut off the snippets of wool as you go along. In addition, if you already have a frame or a standing embroidery hoop, bring it with you to see if it will work for rug hooking. A regular embroidery hoop will not work.

Class participants will be invited to continue working on their pieces at Humble Stitch until 1:00 PM, and also have the option to return the following Sunday April 14th from 9:00 to Noon with Kathy there to guide them. She will also help students finish their projects. They will learn how to whip the edges using yarn and become familiar with several other finishing techniques to make hooked rugs, table runners, wall hangings, and even ornaments.
