Class Description:

Most of the circular piece (approx. 6-7 inches) will be done using 100% woven wool strips pulled as loops through high quality linen. The pattern will be hand-drawn but students can choose from a variety of colors.  Yarn, silk and other materials can be added to the flower center for more interest. The flower can be hooked as a daisy, coneflower or a fantasy flower. Suitable for beginners or those with some rug hooking experience. The piece may be finished as a small table mat or large coaster or appliqued to a jacket, pillow or tote.


Registration is necessary, class size limited to 15.


Materials fee:  $19.00 payable to instructor in class. Includes the pattern on linen, wool and other materials to hook the project.


Supplies Needed:  Bring small scissors for needlework. Do not buy anything in advance but if you own a hook for rug hooking (not latch hook), sturdy 10-14 inch quilting hoop or a rug hooking frame, do bring that along as well. Basic hooks (most $12-14) are available to use or to purchase.


Homework:  None
