Sharon Smith at Wine Country Rug Hookers

Sharon Smith shows us her little needle punched footstool

Wine Country Rug Hookers enjoyed a demo by new chapter member, Sharon Smith, this past July; the subject was needle punching and punch hooking . She enjoyed making buttons and decorating with the needle punching several years ago and even wrote a book about it, “Punchneedle on a Grand Scale”.

Needle punched buttons, floss and punch needles.

Sharon soon discovered traditional rug hooking and is happily hooked!  She is busy hooking and designing rugs by the dozen.

Women on Wheels designed and hooked by Sharon Smith

Sharon brought this rug to work on at our Chapter meeting… it’s one from a series of ‘5 women’ rugs. She designs lots of different types of rugs and offers her patterns on her website; Off the Hook Wool Rugs, and at events around the country. Sharon will be vending at our Wine Country Rug Hookers’ Harvest Hook-in, October 27, 2012, in Petaluma, CA.

We have several vendors in our ATHA chapter and we’ll all be vending at the Hook-in. Emma Webber is our featured Artist and will be there signing her coffee table Rug Art books. Registration information is on our Wine Country Rug Hookers’ Blog.
