After years of knitting, sewing, and other handwork crafts, Jane Rowe became “hooked” on rug hooking after taking a class in 1999 from Rug Thyme Studios. After hooking others’ designs, Jane has designed her own patterns featuring primitive designs as well as children’s artwork. She currently serves as the Vice President for the State Line Rug Hookers Guild (ATHA).
Sheila Arbogast from Prairie Road Designs. Prairie Road Designs sells unique wool rug hooking patterns created by artist, Sheila Arbogast, who has many years of experience in the creative arts. Her areas of expertise include punch needle, water color, cross stitch, embroidery and rug hooking.
