Amy Soutter Oxford opening a new school in Vermont

After 25 years of being an itinerant rug hooking teacher my long-time dream has come true! I've closed on a beautiful 1816 colonial house here in Cornwall, Vermont that will be the future home of my very own school called The Oxford Rug School, opening for classes in June, 2013! The school will specialize in punch needle rug hooking. The living room and dining room will be my classrooms, the kitchen will be great for dye workshops and Sara Jane Burghoff from Violet Jane has agreed to be the school's yarn dyeing instructor. I'll have nice small classes with ten students and have room to house five. There's a B&B just 1/2 a mile away and lots of other places to stay in Middlebury. I'll have my very own studio and it's only 2 1/2 miles from my house. I'm beside myself with happiness…

You can find Amy Soutter Oxford and see her beautiful new (old) house by searching her name on facebook.
