I keep sharing your helpful hints and instructional videos on all the Maritime rug Hooking sites I have access to. Every week there is someone asking how to hook animal fur, or how to square-off a pattern, etc. When responding on Deanne Fitzpatrick’s site, I always say she fosters my creativity for textures, while you, YOU, give me the skills to be a better rug hooker. ♥️
Thanks for your brilliant tip to cut out some background on my project for ‘rug ‘school.

You can learn the technique of rug hooking in just a few minutes but rug hooking is more than just pulling loops.

If you liked the Live! Lesson, you will LOVE The Rug Hooking Journey. This on-going training has hours and hours of lessons, tips, tutorials, and Q&A’s that you can watch at your own pace as well as a beginner course* that will get you started. I’ve been broadcasting these lessons since 2016.
*This beginner course is still being developed and is available ONLY inside The Rug Hooking Journey.
After exploring The Rug Hooking Journey, you are ready for more in-depth courses such as the Practical Color Planning for Rug Hookers (what colors go where?) or the Virtual Dye Class. Curious about footstools? I’ll show you the secrets in the IKEA Stool Cover Instructions and Downloadable Patterns Course.
I can’t help but gush about Cindi Gay’s Rug Hooking Journey! I am pretty new to rug hooking and I have found it so enjoyable that I have been searching for information everywhere to learn more about this art form. I have bought books, been to wool shops, and, of course, been all over the internet. I watched some of the free videos on Cindi’s website and decided to join The Rug Hooking Journey. It is a bonanza of information! Cindi is incredibly generous with her extensive knowledge and explains things thoroughly and clearly. And it is fantastic to be able to go back and look at each session whenever I want. I liked the Journey so much I signed up for the Color Planning course, as well. Cindi herself is such a joy and I appreciate her delightful personality and sense of humor. Her courses are an incredible value for the scope and quantity of information they offer.
