Coming Soon....Happy Trails Oxford Punch Rug Camp

We are so happy to be able to announce that Frank Bielec (Mosey n' Me) that loveable and talented guy that once was on Trading Spaces will be teaching a class right here on the farm September 29th, 30th, and October 1st, 2011.

He has a heart of gold that shines through in all he does. Besides being an extremely talented artist he has a sense of humor that will keep you smiling long after you have gone home.

It's one class that you can take and you will go home with finished projects ready to enjoy! There will be a limited number of students so if you are interested please contact me through email located on the right hand side of this blog....just look for the cows!

Oxford Punch looks very much like a hooked rug but is very fast. It can be done with yarn and wool strips.

These are just a couple of projects I have made in the past. You can make small items all the way up to large rugs with this technique.

I'm so excited for fall to come....I counting down the weeks!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

That would be so much fun. I love all of your rug punched projects. That is what amazes me about it, it is so fast. :)

I, too, wish I lived closer. I've had the Oxford needle for at least 5 years and have never had it out of the box!
Hugs :)
