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.

As promised, here are a couple of rugs from our Heirloom Rug Workshop. Of course, they are only partially completed, but the ladies all got a lot done is only 3 days.
On top is Erin Schulz' tulip rug, a design from The Sampling. Erin tore and cut strips and her rug looks marvelously old.
Jeanette O'Brien hooked this Maggie Bonanomi design. She also tore and cut strips. Her flowers and flags are terrific and the bronze urn may be my favorite part of all.
These experienced rug hookers really embraced
the idea of making rugs that look 100 years old, a task that is really harder than you may think!
I will show you their projects again when they are completed.
In the meantime, remember Donna Hrkman will be here November 13,14,15 for a retreat weekend. Contact me if you are interested. I have a few spots left with this fantastic teacher. Hook a face or primitive rug, she can tackle it all.
