Join Stephanie for three online sessions to learn the relaxing craft of rug hooking. The first session will focus on basic technique, helpful tips and suggestions on mastering the technique, and ways to keep your body safe and healthy while rug hooking. Session 2 will be a review and an opportunity for students to ask questions and the third session will be devoted to finishing your hooked mat.
Through lecture, demonstration and hands-on work, students will experience this historic craft while working on this 8 inch by 8 inch project at home.
A kit and equipment will be mailed to registered students prior to the class. Even if you are not a beginner, you are welcome to come and brush up on your technique. Students may choose from 4 different color schemes of the same design.
Class takes place on February 6, 13, 20 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm EST. A link to join the online platform will be provided prior to the start of the first class.

I’m a fourth generation rug hooker and I learned at age six from my mother, a nationally-known rug hooking teacher. During my teenage years my mom taught me about dyeing wool fabric, and then later she taught me to repair antique hooked rugs. In 1999 , I opened a retail shop in Montpelier, Vermont – Green Mountain Hooked Rugs- where I sell supplies for rug hookers, teach classes and offer rug repair. This business has expanded over the years and now several family members work with me as well. During my career I’ve held offices in the local, national, and international rug hooking guilds, and in 2010, I was honored with the Governor’s Heritage Award as best folk artist in the state of Vermont. My rugs have received numerous awards and have been featured in several national publications. To date, my body of work includes more than three hundred hooked rugs. I currently live in Montpelier, Vermont, with my ever-patient husband, Ted and our aging cat, ‘Miss Macy’.
