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.

What better way to spend a spring weekend than to have a FINISH YOUR PROJECTS weekend here at The Rug Hooking Store. This weekend, April 21,22,23 bring any project you want to complete. We will start at 9am each day and hook until 10pm on Fri and Sat and 4pm on Sunday. You can come for the whole time, a day, an evening, an afternoon, just drop in and out as you can. We will potluck lunches and order pizza or burgers out for dinner. This will be a very laid back, easy going time. If you need help with a rug, I am always available for problems or a color plan! This weekend is FREE and all are welcome.
Gail from The Paisley Pansy in Lake City Iowa, will be here at 1pm on Saturday for anyone who has a framing project. Gail, formerly of Leonardo's in Omaha, is the one who framed all my favorite rugs. She and her sister, do a fabulous job and it always amazes me how reasonable the framing can be. We have all noticed that framing sure beats binding a rug, especially if it is to be used as a wall hanging. It really changes things from rug to ART! Bring a project, print, needlework, anything you need framed at 1ish on Saturday. Gail will bring lots of corners and help you pick the perfect combination, and then take it with her to frame. She will return our projects in about a month!
I am looking forward to seeing many of you this weekend. Friends will be coming from all around, so if you have a few hours, or days, join us! You will be amazed how much you can get done, without the phone or doorbell ringing, the laundry calling your name or the kids yelling "MOM".
