Nancy Z. Parcels began her rug hooking journey in 1999, when she attended a one day workshop at a local store while living in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Prior to that she dabbled in the crafts, sewing, refinishing furniture and creating, but her main focus was her family and raising four children. The Parcels were a career military family so they have traveled extensively, living in several states as well as four years in Wiesbaden, Germany. She collected antiques and enjoyed going to flea markets wherever she lived
but never was exposed to hooked rugs. Her experience at that first workshop, including the rhythm of pulling the loops, was what she found captivating. The first two years of hooking were spent on her own. She enjoyed the hunt for recycled wool and learned a lot by her mistakes, reading everything she could get her hands on pertaining to rug hooking. Fortunately, she found a local guild in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where she met her mentor, Yvonne
Miller who had been teaching since the 1970's and had studied under Pearl McGown. Yvonne taught Nancy many techniques and helped her growth as a rug hooker and instilled in her an appreciation for masterful dying and color. She encouraged Nancy to attend McGown training, and she became an Accredited Teacher in 2006. Several of Nancy's rugs have been chosen as Celebrations winners and she has entered numerous juried shows and Fairs. In 2019 she was selected People's Choice Winner at Sauder Village for her Frost Oriental. She enjoys teaching and traveling, as well as the
friendships and knowledge gifted by her students and the rug hooking community.
Nancy currently resides in Rustburg, Virginia.
