Thank you for visiting my blog site. I own The Rug Hooking Store at Black Horse Antiques in Valley Nebraska. I have had the antique store for the last 31 years and the rug hooking portion of the store for the last 12 years. I specialize in hand-dyed wool and all supplies needed for rug hooking. There are over 750 patterns available in the store and online. I particularly love color planning rugs and will be happy to help you select wools for your latest project.

Well, I had a good day in the store today. I had a visit from the loveliest people imaginable. Dale and Ginnie Kadavy from Omaha came out to inquire about rug hooking for Dale. Ginnie had hooked a project before, but thought Dale might enjoy learning how to hook.
I told Dale that we have 2 great rug hooking men here at the store. Larry Walton and Ken Petersen both hook here regularly and I am sure would welcome another fellow hooker. They will never out number the women, but at least their odds are increasing.
Dale selected a the "Primitive Horse" kit, a frame and then started the process of selecting a hook. There are so many to chose from and each have their own attributes. He tried several and decided on a Ritchie that fit him just right.
Dale practiced and Ginnie and I chatted and all and all, it was a wonderful afternoon. They were a really nice couple and I hope they return to hook with us on a Friday afternoon or first Saturday for open hooking.
We will be hooking tomorrow from 12-5. Remember, everyone is welcome. November 2nd will be 1st Saturday hooking from 12-5. Open hooking is free and open to all.
Join us for a little help or just good conversation.
