September/October 2017

Shorter days are coming our way, the perfect weather for reading about the world of rug hooking. Sibyl Osicka amazes us with a woolly and royally dressed king and queen. More fine-cut instruction comes from Sandra Brown, as she demonstrates how to “puddle” a color in the background of a rug. Ellen Banker shares a witchy pattern sure to please and Karen Poetzinger tells us about her non-traditional use for turkey roasters. Rug hooking maven Deanne Fitzpatrick address creativity and the rules that restrict us, and Tamara Pavich introduces us to Lynne Goegan, a rug hooker who is never bound by rules.
