CELEBRATION XXV - CALL FOR ENTRIES!
Honestly, after the amazing entries of this year and years past, we can't wait to see what you submit for our 25th anniversary edition of Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs: Celebration XXV! Get started here.
|Just look at that cover. And what the cover of the November/December issue promises, the content really delivers!|
|We challenge ourselves each issue to find something that's a “fit” for you—unique you, in the wide-ranging rug hooking community. Natural dyer? Rose Wirtz will inspire. Need that extra something? Welcome sparking Star Man. Fine coloration? Open at Roland Nunn's Floravians. John Flournoy will have you longing to time-travel (hook in hand, of course), and Judy Carter shares her techniques for remarkably realistic feathers. Plus our pull-out pattern (you will love the bunny), and a crazy-quilt boot/Christmas stocking. That lady on the cover? Well, you'll just have to read about her yourself. (You'll love her, too.) Order your copy today!|
And what a celebration it is! A wide range of design styles and stunning techniques from throughout the United States and Canada (23 Canadian rugs this year!). Wonderful individual styles, regional scenes and perspectives, with close-up images that will inspire you to new approaches in your own work. Get your copy here.And don't forget to celebrate your own favorite hooked rug by voting in our Celebration Readers' Choice Voting. Please help us honor these rug hooking artists by voting for your personal choice of the best of the best!
Wide Cut Primitive Rug Hooking is our latest Book Club offering—a terrific introduction to these simply designed and popular rugs. Author Wendy Miller writes, "The common bond I feel with the country women of our past is what first attracted me to wide cut, primitive rug hooking." Here you'll find detailed instructions, charming patterns with folk art images, plus tips on using buttons, creating interesting borders, and finishing your rug in a manner that does justice to all of your hard work. Order your copy today!
Scrappy Hooked Rugs, a recent Book Club offering, is selling like hotcakes and already in reprint! Maybe it is because we all have scraps to use up, or maybe it is because this book is a visual masterpiece of gorgeous rugs, or maybe because Bea Brock is an outstanding instructor and she doesn’t hold back anything in teaching her techniques in this book. Whatever the reason, this book is a new top seller and one that every hooker will find useful in so many ways! Order your copy today and find out what all the fuss is about!
