  1. I will be visiting New Zealand and Australia, starting on July 18-July 29 coming to you from Colorado. Are there shops that sell wool and patterns for rug hooking? I’ve hooked 3 small rugs so far and love it. I’ll be in Christchurch, Franz Josef, Queenstown (July 20th) Milford Sound. Melbourne, Tasman Island, Hobart, Cairns.
    Thank you for any information you can give me. Patricia Morrison

  2. G’day Patricia….Rug Hooking is only now seeing a revival in Australia so we only have about 240 Guild members in Australia. We approach rug crafting differently than what is being done in the US/Canada/UK and most of us tend to make our own patterns. You might check on my site under “Suppliers” and look for the South Australian suppler Judith Stephens or Jo Franco (out of Western Australia) – they work together and they sell some kits.

    Also, Joanne Wild : wildj@activ8.net.au has a group called “Happy Hookers ” in Deloraine, Tasmania. Joanne does latchete hooking rather than trad rug hooking.

    No real contacts yet in NZ.

    Enjoy your trip!

  3. Greetings from Canada. Kudos on the quality and content of your website. Thought you might be interested in checking out a fibre artist named Ali Rhind from northern England who has a remarkable video on ‘hooky’ and ‘proddy’ rugmaking which also includes instructions on making a ‘frame’ which accommodates larger sized mats/rugs. (Can access via YouTube) Best wishes for your continued success in spreading ‘the word’.

    1. Thanks for the kind words Linda and the information about Ali….Have a good holiday season!
      Regards, Judi
