UPDATE: Instructions for those of you coming down I-75 from Michigan. Your GPS will probably have you come down I-75 to Rte 6 just south of Bowling Green. The area from Perrysburg to Bowling Green is all construction and often clogged with traffic. Get off at Perrysburg, I-20. Head east toward the stores. Turn south or right at Walgreens onto Thompson Rd. At 5 Points Road turn right. At McCutchenville Rd or Rte 199 turn left. Take that south for several miles until you cross Rte 6. Take the very first right onto Linwood. The road will twist and turn. As you pass a beautiful 3 story brick Victorian home, notice the white house that appears to be ahead in the road. That is me.
Once you get off I-75 your GPS will probably update and feed you the instructions above. If you get stuck, just call me at 419-287-3884. I’ll give you directions from where you are if you need them.
We’ve been in the process of moving for almost 2 years. We bought a house that needed top to bottom remodeling. We moved into that house (with incomplete construction) in September 2014. Most of the wool boxes have been unpacked and I’ve had several classes. I’m ready to share the new rug hooking studio with everyone.
Hook-in at my Pemberville, OH studio
This will be a very informal event. Bring your own lunch. I’ll have water, tea and coffee. Stop by to shop or come all day and sit and hook. I’d love to see you. The wool will be on sale. Some items will be on clearance.
If you work and cannot attend on Friday, just give me a call to confirm I’ll be home and I’d love to have you visit when it is convenient for you.
- Hours: 9am – 3pm
- Address: 6988 Linwood Rd., Pemberville, OH. I’m just south of Rte. 6 and a few miles east of I-75.
- As long as time permits, I will be available for consultations. So if you are stuck or unsure about a rug you are working on, bring it along and I’d be happy to share some advice.
- Consider bringing a chair if you are staying to hook. I have enough chairs for 14 people which may be plenty – it depends on how many people show up.
- To help me prepare, please leave a comment if you are planning on coming, but no reservation is necessary. I’ll have a small gift waiting for everyone who leaves a comment.
- This is a free event.
On the right is an entire wall of as-is off the bolt wall. The wool is all cut into 1 yard pieces so it is quick and simple to pick up the wool of your dreams.
I still need to figure out a way to hang the antique ironing board. There will be shelving installed in between the two cabinets over the washer and dryer and a counter over both machines.
The work table is made with three Kallax units from IKEA. The one on the end has two drawer units. Two units are back to back and the third faces outward. I used the top from my drafting board as a top.
This wall has all the wool that is ready to hook. I sell the wool by the strip or 1/16 yard. Why buy a 1/4 yard when you only need a small amount? If you need more, just buy multiple strips.
The step stool is also from IKEA. This is a new one. I’ve had one for years but I am using that one in the kitchen. It’s worked so well for me that it was a simple solution to get another. I bought the unfinished one. I’m still thinking about how I want to finish this one.
The adorable little rug (lower left in the image above) with 6 women was made for me by my studio students as a house warming gift. Each person hooked themselves and each one reflects their personality. I am honored to have these friends who happen to be students in my life.
I only display a maximum of 4 yards of each texture in this space. The remainder of the bolt is stored in another part of the house.
The door on the left is the door to the outside. The next one is the door to the rest of the house and the wonderful sliding door is the entry to the rest room.
This is my dog, Jackson. He thinks the only reason I get out the camera is to take a photo of him.
I hope you can join me June 12, 2014! Leave a comment below to RSVP. I’ll have your small gift ready for you. One gift per comment.
