This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    For over 50 years, I have been immersed in all facets of traditional rug hooking. . . ..from dyeing to teaching; designing patterns and colour planning them. From my own 90 dye formulas, I dye yards over neutrals, pastels, and textures. . .thus creating hundreds of variations. Spot dyeing is another specialty, and I routinely keep 200 different ones on hand. For the shaders, I have a line of mostly 6 value swatches; although some are 8 value. Many of these can be viewed on my website: www.newearthdesigns.com
All hooked items are made by hand hooking strips of my hand dyed wool that I've chosen for the piece. Once i choose a design from my pattern business (I actually have 2, New Earth and Lib Callaway), I print it on to a backing, usually linen. The older ones I've made are on burlap, as that was commonly used until the late 1980's. The patterns are shown on my website.
The rugs are finished off with wool yarn whipped over cording, and binding tape applied to the back.
I first learned to hook in 1971, became a certified teacher in 1979, and have been "on the road" teaching since 1989. Hope to meet you soon at a rug school!
