Heart Rug Mugs by Designs in Wool

Rug Hooking Gathering

A rug “hook-in” will be meeting Friday, May 1st from 10-2. I’ll be working on these heart rug mugs by Mary Johnson from Designs in Wool. This is not an instructional class, but a gathering of rug hookers and those that want to learn how to hook. I have reserved the classroom for the first Friday of each month. The cost for the room is $10 a month to be split evenly by the number of hookers who attend that month. We will meet at Prairie Stitches Quilt Shoppe. 72 Main St. Oswego, Il. at 10 and then go over to the classroom. Hope to see you then!
