November/December 2017

The holidays are rapidly approaching, and this issue of RHM is chock full of signs of the season. Snowmen and stained glass, vintage ornaments and snow—we have something for everyone. Sandra Brown’s series on geometric doodle rugs concludes in this issue, and Kay LeFevre shows us her incredible hooked birds, celebrating the winged gems of Canada. We look at the rugs inspired by the Anne of Green Gables series, and Sharon Smith tells us how she plans and creates her wonderful series of rugs. Join us as we enjoy the wintery weather and the exciting articles and projects from these talented rug hookers!
