Upcoming Rug Hooking Events...

We have two rug hooking events coming up in Eureka Springs,Arkansas that I wanted to tell you about.First is two three day camps with Victoria Hart Ingalls.This is Eureka Springs rug hooking Camp.Due to illness I have a few spots open for this camp.

Victoria Hart Ingalls is from Independence, Mo. Victoria has been hooking for thirty years and teaching for nearly twenty, both at home and at rug schools across the country. Victoria has written for Rug Hooking Magazine and has had work included in Celebrations.Though she is known for her focus on fine shading and portraiture, her style ranges from traditional, to wide-cut hooking with a folk art appeal.I love the little kids faces she does. She has a degree in Fine Art and was a student of well-known teacher and author Margaret Hunt Masters. Her husband, Tom, will be joining her with his beautiful hand-made hooks.
