An Introduction to Rug Hooking
Join Kathleen Eckhaus to learn about the American craft of traditional rug hooking. Using wool strips on a linen backing, students will create a rug from a pre-purchased pattern & kit including finishing techniques like whipping the edges. She will have several types of frames and hooks to try as well as various samples for demonstration.

- Small pair of sharp scissors to cut snippets of wool
- A rug-hooking kit (NOT a pattern), approximately 12" x 14" or smaller. The kit includes the pre-cut (#8 cut) wool strips on linen plus the pattern. I suggest The Blue Tulip Woolery for a quality kit. Other sources include Etsy, The Woolery, and Green Mountain Hooked Rugs. Contact the seller if the description does not include all of this information.
- If you own a frame or standing embroidery hoop, you may bring it along, but do not purchase one before our first class!
