Rug e-School

Learn how to hook without attending a rug camp

The best fun in the world is at rug camp but not everyone can attend either due to family responsibilities, time constraints or budget concerns. Learn the way I did, through books and the bit I could find on the internet. Because I had trouble finding information on the internet, I decided to create my own. Many of the books I found were quite dated. Enjoy the lessons below.

The list of links below still go to the very OLD site. I will be rewritting them, but for now, take the advice given with a grain of salt. All the current posts are in the section below. As they are rewritten, they will be removed from the list below.





All the finishing lessons have been rewritten. Scroll below.

This is the end of the list of old posts. Enjoy the new posts below.
