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. Visit my store at www.janicelee.biz
The Omaha Hook-IN is coming October 3 and our special Hook-IN weekend will come right along with it on October 3 and 4.
Saturday the 4th of October, Jan Goos will be giving a special class here at the store. This is her original Chalkware Santa design and she has hooked it up in 5 different color schemes for you to choose from.
The Santa on the bottom is one that I hooked on Sunday, just so I would know how much wool to pull for the Santa kits. It turns out, I like the white Santa very much, so you can also order the white Santa kit, if you are signed up for our Oct 4 Chalkware Santa class.
So…here are your choices (top left) green Santa with brown background, (top right) blue and red Santa. In the middle, left, Red Santa, center, Blue Santa, right Gold Santa
On the bottom, white Santa with chimney sweep background.
If you are signed up for the class, it is time to send your $50 plus 2.75 tax to pay for your kit. I am paying Jan to teach the class, to thank all my wonderful customers for their business thru out the year.
Join us Oct 3 and 4. Even if you are not in the Santa class, there will be open hooking, door prizes, a drawing for a $100 gift certificate, snacks, tips and all the color planning help you might need. It will be a 2 day rug hooking extravaganza.
At 3pm on Saturday we have a special guest Cameron Mayville, who is coming to talk about rug cleaning. That should be illuminating for all of us.
Mark your calendars and if you are signed up to do the Santa class, make sure you get me your color choice.
