I began rug hooking in 2006 when a co-worker talked about taking a ‘rug hooking’ course with her friend. I didn’t want to miss out so I asked to join them.
Edie Cole Legere (now Arseneault) was our wonderful instructor. We had a 3 hour session on how to hook, how to bind and how to whip. That was it! I fell in love!! And my passion grew stronger with each rug I touched.
Edie is a wonderful wool dyer and she encouraged me to learn how to dye my wool. I dabbled in the dyeing arena a bit but wasn’t doing too much until I met Lucy Richard who introduced me to her Wooly Mason Jar method of dyeing. I took her class and suddenly the pieces fell into place. I was soon buying up dye kits and wool.
Once I started dyeing my own wool, friends would comment on how bright and beautiful my colors turned out. The interest in my wool made me think about how I could share my creations with other artisans. The rest is history.
I have a small studio in my home, walk ins are welcome!
I hope my dyed wool gives people pleasure and gets incorporated into their master pieces.
