With the fall season soon upon us, the studio is bustling! Fall is the time of year we look forward to getting back to rug hooking. The feel of warm wool is very inviting in the cooler months and there is something soothing about hunkering down with a new rug hooking project as the weather turns crisp outside. Here in the studio we have been busy expanding our product line with the addition of our silk sari ribbon. Two new colours have just arrived…wedgewood and silver. Wedgewood would be wonderful in a winter sky and the silver an absolute must for snowscapes.
In the dye kitchen we have formulated two new wools perfect for light backgrounds….vintage linen and vintage lace. These wools can be used as is or mix them with a variety of neutral textures.
I am also very pleased to announce the addition of a new pattern line by Audrey Milward. Audrey has a keen sense of design and color which is evident in the many rugs she has hooked over the year’s. Her style is classic and timeless which will suit many different decorating styles. These studio exclusive designs are just a few that are now available on the pattern pages and more will be available soon. I have seen what Audrey has on the drawing board and am eager to share them with you as soon as they are ready. The design at the top of the page is “Leaves” and the two below are “Geodes” and “Ferns” For details about size and price, these patterns can be seen on the pattern pages under “Audrey Milward Designs”.
We are working on adding many new products in the coming months including new designs by Sarah Skrlj. The sizes and details need to be finalized and will soon be ready to transfer to linen. Here is a sneak peek at a couple of designs hot off Sarah’s drawing board. These patterns and more will be coming soon! Welcome back to hooking!
