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.

The Nebraska Rug Hooking Retreat at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City is over and a great time was had by all. Pictured are the teachers and their classes. On top is Pris Buttler and her class, then Donna Hrkman and her class, and finally Jan Goos and her group.
These ladies all managed to produce fantastic art in their hooked projects. There were portraits of people and animals, artistic reproductions and some wonderful warm folk arty rugs as well.
The Lied Lodge did their normal fantastic job of feeding and lodging us for the 4 days. It was cold outside, but with the fireplaces going in the class room and lobby, we barely noticed the chill in the air.
Ladies came from as far away as Alaska, and there were attendees from Texas, South Carolina,
Minnesota, as well as Nebraska, Missouri and Iowa.
I have some photos of their projects and I will share them with you this week. I would like to thank our wonderful teachers, Pris Buttler, Donna Hrkman and Jan Goos for making this a productive, informative and fun event.
We are having sign-ups for next year…..starting NOW. Next year the teachers will be Pris Buttler, Donna Hrkman, Jan Goos and new next year, Ali Strebel of Ohio. She has many specialties….. primitives, embellishments and more.
