We’re so excited to share our newest product with you today! It’s not just a product, it’s a whole new craft. We have started carrying rug hooking kits from Deanne Fitzpatrick Studio in Nova Scotia!
Deanne Fitzpatrick grew up in Newfoundland, her mother, and both grandmothers hooked rugs. When she was growing up, fewer people were hooking rugs as it was no longer a necessary chore. Lucky for us, Deanne needed rugs for her house, and learned to hook rugs. It became her passion, and from her studio in Amherst, Nova Scotia, she writes her books (4 to date!) plus designing and creating her rug hooking kits. As well as hooking a rug or two…many of which have been exhibited in galleries and museums.
Deanne says “I hook nearly everyday. I cannot stop myself. I like the feel of wool slipping through my fingers.” I think we fibre folks all understand that feeling.
We have 12 different designs to choose from, and all kits include your fibre, pattern, and your rug hook! Check out her website to learn more about Deanne and her craft!
We also have new colours of DROPS Nord, in “Mix” and “Uni Colour” and more Hikoo “Kenzie as well!
