I have had a number of people in to the store asking about a beginner rug hooking class and think I have enough to go ahead. For those of you on my waiting list I will be calling you over the next few days to get you signed up. If you have not been in the store and have not contacted me by email but are interested in taking this class please email me at
jo-anne.harris@wool-gathering.com

The class will be either Sunday January 19th from 10-1 or Monday January 20th from 6-9. I will find out what the majority would like and can go with that. The cost for the workshop is $50 which is the workshop and the kit fee combined. The kit includes backing, a hook and enough wool to get started on your piece.

There are no requirements or pre-requisites for this workshop. If you have a ruler, scissors and a sharpie marker please bring them with you. You don’t need to go out and buy these if you don’t have them, I’ll have some but having your own will let you work at your own speed without waiting for others. I also have hoops available in the store and for a small fee can let you rent them while you work on your piece at home. However, if you have a frame for another craft bring it along to see if it’s suitable. I also have frames in the store available for sale and if you’re sure you’re going to continue with this you might want to buy a frame before the class.

I’m excited to introduce traditional rug hooking to you all.
