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.

We just spent a fantastic 2 days with a great bunch of rug hookers at our 'Hook-in Weekend' event. We hooked all day yesterday and today, just for the fun of it! We had perfect fall weather, cool and sunshiny. Kathleen Salak taught us how to crochet a binding on a rug and Sandy Weller taught us how to make a pillow from our favorite hooked project. Pillows….ok…sure. Crocheting, YIKES, that was hard, but Kathleen was a great teacher and with a little practice, I might be able to do it. Sandy gave us a great hand out with all the details to make our pillows. Thanks to both Sandy and Kathleen for the classes.
Shown is Hidden House, a pattern I hooked in a Maggie Bonanomi class. I know I have shown it before, but it is just a nice fall rug, I had to use for my blog tonight!
Oh…and just so you know…..the winner of the $100 gift certificate (all you had to do is make a purchase this weekend to be put in the drawing) was JANICE NAVRATIL. Congratulations Janice!
Next time I will show you my NEBRASKA rug and tell you all about that project. Can't wait.
