I would love to learn how to hook rugs. I love all the great folk art patterns you can find for it. it it hard to learn?

hi jenn-
there are lots of places to get patterns - rug hooking is very easy. check your local needle arts store - needle arts of concord (ma) has kits, for example or try visiting the resources on this icky web page i did for a class: http://web.simmons.edu/~keefem2/finalproject
you should be able to find patterns/kits on those sites.
for some beautiful rugs check out elaine's archives here: http://www.urbanspinner.com/blog/archives/cat_rug_hooking.html
i also have a friend, phyllis, who has some kits/designs: http://www.lincolnfarmdesign.com/Our%20Designs.htm
if you hook the way you sew - your rugs will be beautiful!!!

thanks so much. I think I am going to buy a kit...although May is always my personal "finish all my projects" month I think starting something new will be fine!!
I am not sure if I know which fabric store you mean...there is one going towards the west side..it has a funny (funny haha not funny strange) that is pretty nice. it is owned by the people that owned levines (which was a great fabric store...you had to climb into big bins to dig our fabric and you bought it by the pound). there is a quilting shop off chestnut st. as well that is supposed to be very nice, although I have not been in there myself...
