MarchAprilMay 2022

On the Cover:
Monarch Memories, designed and hooked by Janine Broscious.

Spring is on the way, so start watching for those green leaves, wildflowers, robins, and butterflies! Janine Broscious gives us a wonderful monarch design in this issue, sure to brighten any room. Gwen Dixon shares a sweet bird nest project that includes many textile techniques. We show you the Readers’ Choice winners from Celebration 31 and provide a punch needle pattern just in time for International Punch Needle Rug Hooking Day. And we’re pleased to show you a few of the spectacular Fairy Tale rugs now underway. Amazing work, amazing project. Two more wonderful projects wrap up this issue: Scandinavian Stag, by Neysa Russo, and a primitive piece designer Laurie Lausen calls Prairie Flower Runner. Something for everyone—so enjoy the new season with some new projects!
