"In the Loop with Searsport Rug Hooking" 

It is just another quickie this month! We are straight out getting ready for the Sauder show and we have our stool class there. We have been approving changes on the blue prints for the new store in Florida, getting ready for the Hookin' in Brewer next month and Betsy's Hookin the end of Oct. Then from Betsys we head directly south to Florida! There we will be working on filling and setting up the new Studio!! Remember the Studio in Maine will be closed from Sunday August 13 until Monday August 21, while we are in Ohio at Sauder.
The website is open 24/7 but there will be no shipping during that time. Will we see you in Sauder?

We are doing "flatties" these are all hooked and have a fused or glued backing of wool on them and slightly stuffed to give a little 3D effect. Our first pattern and kit if for Indian corn.You will receive the pattern on linen to hook three pieces of corn, a raffia bow, corn husks, 2 rusty stars and some over dyed velvet to embellish. You add your own wool, or this months wool of the month or one of the jumbo jelly rolls that we have that is even called Indian corn! These are fast and fun and easy to do. Finished size is 19x9

For ordering "Just the kit" gives you the directions, the pattern for the three corn on linen, 2 rusty stars, raffia bow, corn husks, dyed velvet, you will use your own wool

Adding the "WOM" or "Wool of the month" gives you the kit plus the wool from our wool of the month bundle with 4 pieces of wool roughly 8x36

Adding with a "Jelly Roll" gives you the kit plus one of the Indian corn jelly rolls with 8 different wool's roughly 8x18

Both bundles are adding a half yard of assorted wools ready to use on your corn!
