This course was designed for beginning rug hookers, but there is plenty of new tips and tricks that an experience rug hooker can learn.
Both of these examples were hooked by me, Cindi Gay. The first one was hooked live for members of The Rug Hooking Journey. I presented the lessons live and hooked it a lot of it during the weekly hook-ins in 2021.
The questions asked by the students who were hooking along with me made this course better than ever. Every step in the process is covered which makes this course a great course for beginners.
You can also purchase the pattern with an added scroll.
Purchasing the pattern is a separate transaction and is NOT included with this course. You can purchase the pattern on my main website.
The Pattern is NOT included in the course. You must purchase it separately or simply apply the lessons learned in the course to any primitive flower pattern.
What you will learn:
- Watch as I hook every motif in the pattern. Don’t worry, I sped it up so it is not hours and hours of video.
- When and how to color plan the rug. I use a two step process for this pattern.
- How to give depth to primitive flowers, such as a rose
- How to hook tiny details such as the white dots.
- How to hook the background so that the background drops away.
- How to prep the pattern before you start hooking.
- Like all my courses, videos are recorded and you complete the course at your own pace.
What others have said about the course
I certainly enjoyed the Queen Ann Rose course. And not surprisingly I learned a lot too. There are two obvious skills to be learned from the Queen Ann Rose course. The first is to make a the Queen Ann’s Lace flower – or more importantly – how to make a dot! And of course the second is to make a beautiful primitive rose and rosebud. More important is that what I learned from this class that had little to do with flowers. First was how NOT to hook in a straight line. It sounds strange but take the course and you will understand. It is part of making a beautiful rose, and part of being a skilled hooker. The second surprisingly valuable skill I learned is to NOT put the unused portion of a strip in your “noodle basket”. Take that half a strip and go on to another area of the rug and use it up. I can’t count the ways that it helps with hooking – but I will just say neatness, organization and efficiency for starters. It is one of the most important things I have learned from you Cindi.beverly genader
