No Two Alike/Margo Winters
My cousin, Cheryl Singley, has been hooking rugs for as long as I can remember. I’ve seen her rugs over the years but did not really understand the process. In the winter of 2016. Cheryl taught a rug hooking class and I attended. No Two Alike, from The Old Tattered Flag, was the pattern. I enjoyed the class, and finished the project in only a few months. Since then, I have completed about 12 rugs. I’ve attended classes and hook-ins at Sauder Village and through our local McGown Guild. I also spent a day with Cheryl in her kitchen dying wool. While it was an interesting process, I will leave that to the professionals for now.
I enjoy rug hooking—it is a relaxing activity and a good way to end a busy day. I also enjoy all the wonderful rug hookers that I have met. My local guild members are
supportive and are always willing to share their experience and offer valuable advice when I am stuck on a particular project. I find the same camaraderie at the hook-ins and vendor events.
Thank goodness I finally paid attention to what Cheryl has been doing all these years! I look forward to learning more hooking and finishing techniques. Color planning is another piece of the puzzle that I would like to focus on in the future.
