Main Conference Class #18
Hook a Pictorial Mini Rug/Hot Pad in Yarn (O)
Saturday, Aug 3
9:00 - 4:30 pm

Rug hooking pictorial images with yarn is a creative, free-form way to use a variety of handspun
and commercial yarns from one’s stash. Using a traditional rug hook (not a punch needle) many
different yarns and textures can be used. It’s creative and easy! Just hold the yarn under the
surface of the backing with your non-dominant hand and pull loops through about a ¼ inch with a
rug hook. Create your hot pad/mini rug using one of Lynnsey’s designs on a pre-marked backing,
Lynnsey will provide all yarns, a rug hook, hoop and backing. Bring scissors.
