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
Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Here is a suggestion for you! My own Blue dog has been a busy guy. He is the poster child for our fundraising campaign "COATS FOR KIDS" which is raising money for coats and warm clothes for the children of our area.
I wrote this children's book about Blue and all his activities. As you may know, Blue is a store dog and a theatre dog and a therapy dog and a reading dog…..etc, etc. I hired a wonderful artist, Jana Sesow of Lincoln to do the illustrations and they are beautiful. Shown here, right, is a painting showing rug hooker Colleen Cochrane and Blue. Blue likes to help the rug hookers in the store by hiding his ball in their baskets of wool. He then barks at them until they find it and throw it for him. Big help, Blue!!!!!!
So this very pretty book with 10 illustrations, is for sale for $20, postage and shipping are included. Help the children of our area get warm clothes for the winter and see more of Blue's adventures! All you have to do is send me your address, I will send you the book and then you can send your check for $20. Absolutely all proceeds go to our "COATS FOR KIDS CAMPAIGN".
Our rug hooking Christmas Party is Saturday Dec 12 from 10-5. Join us for a fun day of rug hooking and friendship!
