We’ve had such great response to Susie Stephenson’s book Designing and Hooking Primitive Rugs, and so much fun in her classes, we wanted to share some of her energy and knowledge with you all. Here, a two part video we put together last time she stopped by Halcyon Yarn: Part 1, rug hooking with yarn, examples and inspirations, and Part 2, rug hooking with yarn, a hands-on how-to. As Susie says (and shows), you can learn to hook rugs in 15 minutes, but spend a life time developing designs. These videos start with examples of some of Susie’s wonderful rugs, and give us glimpses into what inspired them. She then gives a great intro to rug hooking with yarn (hint: it came out beautifully!) that makes it look easy and fun. She also talks about the uses of yarn and roving in rug hooking, inspirations that are certainly near and dear to our heart. We had a great time making these videos, and on a personal note I’m planning out my first rug hooking project… So watch at your own risk! If you feel the need to get geared up, try our Halcyon Yarn Rug Wool,Halcyon Deco Rug Wool Yarn, or Halcyon Geo Rug Wool Yarn, and our rug hooking pages for supplies.
