Beginner's Project: Rita's Students Terry Lynn and Bert
I recently taught a two-day class in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Since most of the participants had only begun hooking in the fall and had no formal instruction, I concentrated my lessons on developing good techniques for hooking various forms, backgrounds and finishing. I had also asked students to bring the piece that they were working on to see if I might make suggestions.
Much too my surprise, two students brought large rugs that I recognized immediately as a design from the Rug Hookers' Bible.
These two, Terry Lynn and Bert, had dyed a whole bolt of wool and were doing a fantastic job on their first major piece. I was so very impressed by their courage and confidence, and by the beautiful results.
Now what do you think of this for a beginner's project?
