Your Online Rug Hooking Teacher
Learning to Rug Hook is easy...
..but Rug hooking is so very confusing when you first start out. What equipment do I need? Or more like, what do you NOT need? How do I do this or that? You need someone who is always there that you can ask. You need a teacher or a guide. I can help.
Once you get past the basics, it becomes all about inspiration and different ways to look at your art. I'll teach you ways to go beyond blind experimentation.

A tiny tip can take you miles.
Have been listening to the podcasts and I must say I was skeptical about "just listening". I have noted several good tips, the framing on landscapes, preparing recycled wool and marking new wool with tags for starters.
I like your podcasts!!! Are good for listening multiple times even.

I keep sharing your helpful hints and instructional videos on all the Maritime rug Hooking sites I have access to. Every week there is someone asking how to hook animal fur, or how to square-off a pattern, etc. When responding on Deanne Fitzpatrick’s site, I always say she fosters my creativity for textures, while you, YOU, give me the skills to be a better rug hooker. ♥️
Thanks for your brilliant tip to cut out some background on my project for ‘rug ‘school.

Whether you use yarn or wool strips, punch or pull your loops traditionally from the top, are you ready to to start your own journey?
