Wool Rug Hooking Giveaway!


Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

It's time for another giveaway and this month I'm giving away this book Wool Rug Hooking by Tara Darr. Perhaps you have never tried rug hooking or maybe you are a seasoned hooker. Well either way this book is filled with lots of information on tools and supplies, color choices and dyeing, basic techniques, finishing and aftercare. It also has 23 patterns!

Even if you aren't a rug hooker you can use the patterns for needle punching. Along with the book I'm going to send along a hook to get you started.

If you would like to sign up just leave a comment on this post and if you don't have a blog just leave your email address.

I'll draw a winner on Friday, April 24th.

Happy Trails....Ginger

Would love to be entered in your giveaway. I'm ashamed to say I have a rug on my frame and can't get the motivation to work on it. I see your awesome work and so want to finish but I'm stuck on the colors etc. I'm a new hooker so maybe I just need to cut myself some slack if it isn't perfect.

Hi, I took my first rug hooking class last Saturday and loved it. I am looking forward to learning more about this art and also finishing my first project. The one thing I have learned for sure so far is that hooking is very time consuming but fun. God Bless....Rhonda

I would love to be entered into your giveaway. I hooked one small rug at a class I attended in Sturbridge MA, I love rug hooking. I'm not as good as you, but I do want to continue to hook and be hooked LOL.
A book such as this one, would be so helpful for me
Maybe just maybe I could be lucky enough to win
Blessings~ Cheryl
