Hudson and Me

Hudson and Me, and New Hoops

This is a picture of Hudson helping me sand the new hoops. He was very keen to help Neil,  his "Gramps" with the cutting( we only let him watch that part). Then Judy(YaYa) his grandmother had him matching blocks and clamping the outer rings. Next came the finishing with Carol. We had a great day and made lots of progress. Check them out on the "tools" tab. 

Welcome to Willow Creek Rug Hooking!

I am ecstatic to be able to present to you my new website and first blog post. Here you will find about current events, pictures of completed work done by my students or those who have purchased our designs and other topics that you may find interesting.

As you may have read in the 'About Us', I have been hooking rugs for many years and what started out as a hobby has turned into a lot more. It is an art that is easy to learn and as with other crafts the more you do it the better your become. I enjoy giving workshops and teaching people new to the art and to those who are more advanced in the art. As well I enjoy demonstrating at local fairs and shows in and around the area from Perth to Kingston. 

I have set up a forum for those in the rug hooking community to post questions, converse about patterns and products and other related topics. Feel free to join in on the conversation and discover the fun of rug hooking.

The summer of 2014 has proven to be a major event for Willow Creek Rug Hooking. I attended and demonstrated at the Mayberly Fair in August. A small but exciting one-day fair located just outside of Perth, Ontario where the focus is on the crafts, preserves, baked goods, the local 4-H Club and horse pulling contests. We had some very interested and eager visitors wanting more information on the craftCarol demonstrates to a young girl how to hook rugs of rug hooking.

FiberFest 2014 in Almonte was another large moment for us.  A great turn-out for the event with large crowds both days allowed us to meet a lot of new friends eager to take lessons and purchase their supplies.fiberfest Almontefiberfest Almonte 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also taught a course in Ancaster, Ontario recently. What a great time we all had at the OHCG School in Ancaster. I taught the Rookie Hooking class and we had brand new hookers and some that were very experienced but had never tried Fine Shading. It worked really well and everyone made excellent progress n their Pansy Mats.

As I said I am excited about our new web site and hope you find it informative, easy to use, and overall a fun place to come to talk and learn about rug hooking. If you have any suggestions of ways to improve your experience we hope you will email your thoughts to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thanks so much, the blog is not that active but I am working on improving that. Here is a new pic of one of AJ's patterns.
