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 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.
