History of Wooly Woolens....
About 10 years ago I walked into Liberty Quilt Shop and saw something on the wall I dearly loved and had no idea what it was…I just knew it was wonderful.
After inquiring about the project I found out it was a hooked rug. I really don’t remember ever seeing one before that day. I think any of us who are rug hookers can say we truly became “hooked” at one time or another.
I had taken many penny rug classes from Lynn Hosford and knew I was addicted to wool from the start, but making loops and creating a wool rug was all new to me. I took my first class with Emma Lou Lais and would have to say she has been the main influence in my learning to hook and color planning. I am grateful to her for the inspiration and instruction she gave me in dying wool. I love to put the dye pots on to create a new color, or age an existing color for use in my rugs.
I really never intended to teach. However, upon the encouragement of my husband Jim I am where I am.
Upon the prompting of Jim, again, I am launching this web site with the hope that you will see something that you will want to hook. I especially enjoy planning a new rug with the maker's influence. For that reason, I do not make kits, but am happy to work with you in the studio or over the phone to acheive an heirloom for your own home. I invite you to visit the Wooly Woolens Studio and share my love of wool, color and design. Please call for an appointment at a convenient time for both of us.
