There never seems to be enough space for most rug hookers to be able to work comfortably. Wool is often stashed away in containers, relegated to closets or basements, and it seems like such an interruption to have to search for that perfect color. Meet Kay LeFevre; she hooks on wheels.

Kay and her husband, Fred, sold their waterfront home in Ontario, Canada, and downsized to a motor home. They have children and grandchildren scattered throughout Canada and the United States, so they travel to warm sites in winter and cooler spots in summer, visiting family. Living and rug hooking in an RV takes a lot of organization. Kay hooks with yarn and is able to carry several bins in the RV while traveling. Most of her stash resides in her sister’s studio in Montana.
