Member Spotlight - First Rug - Karen West

"I got interested in rug hooking after visiting my friend's parents farm in August 2018. Her mother had many rug hookings throughout their house and I learned that she had made them. She uses cut wool and let me try hooking a few pieces of material and I was hooked! I went home and researched like crazy about rug hooking. I decided I wanted to make a rug with wool yarn, since it is more easily accessible and I like yarn. I wanted to make a floor rug for my sons' room. Since I love fall, I created my own design of many different fall colored leaves with a green background and I call it "Fall Leaves". The dimension are 30" x 23". Since I also discovered Swedish Weaving at this time, it took me about a year to finish the rug and I love it.

 

I am currently working on two other rug projects using yarn. One is a 45" x 60" floor rug that I am making using the artwork of my son, who just finished kindergarten. Hopefully I will finish it before he is done with elementary school! The other rug I am working on is my design, which is inspired by a visit to the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, WA and seeing all the beautiful native beadwork designs. This rug will be 29" x 20".

 

I love rug hooking and I love working with wool yarn. And I love reading and learning more about rug hooking. I currently hook on monk's cloth but hope to try other backing material like linen and rug warp. I love how such beautiful works are created with such simple tools. I started using a Joan Moshimer hook but now I am using a Hartman hook."

Do you have a first rug (and more rugs) you would like to share with the group? Email me! You just might provide the inspiration to a newbie rug hooker. You can say as much or as little as you'd like, and include as many pictures as you like. Every rug has a story, and we love to hear all about them!
