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.

Yes, Beate, I am back! I promise to try to blog more frequently than I have been. There certainly is enough to blog about!!!!!!
We had a wonderful class this weekend with Diana Geisinger of Ankeny, Iowa. Diana is a McGown certified teacher who brought a full bag of tricks, lessons and ideas to this three day class.
One mini class was on CREATIVITY and we did some very interesting exercises to encourage creative thinking. Another class was on faux braiding and I finally feel like I understand how to accomplish this wonderful look on my own. Diana is a great teacher and a great deal of fun.
She also does MAGIC, the picture on top shows part of her one woman show.
The second picture is Beate Hager from Missouri, who mentioned she missed seeing my blog of late.
So I am promising renewed blogging with renewed vigor.
Below, is a picture of the entire class and a more lovely group of ladies you could not have asked to be locked in a room for 3 days with. We ate Carl's good food, laughed and hooked and the time just flew by.
We have a class here at the store every year about this time. Of course, we have a 3 day class almost every month here at The Rug Hooking Store. Next year on June 5,6,7, Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Rugs will be here to teach. I have just of couple of spots open for that class, so contact me if you are interested in hooking one of the wonderful designs from her studio.
Also, don't forget we are having a one day SINGLE SATURDAY event here at the store on June 21st. Designer Jan Goos will be teaching this one day class using her brand new design "Autumn Gobbler". This comes in 3 sizes and you can pick the size of your choice. The class is a special bargain, for $100 you get the class, lunch and the pattern in the choice of your size on linen or monks. There are only a couple of spots left in the class, so let me know if you would like to join us. We will be doing more of these single Saturday classes thru out the year for people who can't take time off work, but can squeeze in a little time on the weekend.
All for now, more pics of the workshop soon,
