RE: Rug Hookers

There are a few videos on You Tube but not a lot. I've tried it and like it but there's not a lot of interest out there - especially in this community. And if you only want to do it in the traditional way with wool, that can be a chore, wool is expensive and I've found that it is non-existent in my area, even the thrift shops have no wool clothes on the racks. (I live in FL and I guess all the snow birds get rid of their wool clothes before they come down.) So instead of wool, I cut fleece into strips and used that on burlap and it works. It also helps to have the proper frame which I don't have and it's awkward without it.
