“Fragments” 

Class Taught by Carol Weatherman
www.thesampling.net


Definition of a Fragment: Patterns are manageable size to hook; so, a full understanding of finishing a piece can be achieved in class. 

My inspiration came from an early hooked piece I purchased. It was cut to a smaller size; most likely this fragment was the only salvageable section.

primitive style is not easy to achieve; unless your textiles have been aged in a matter of believability . Each Student will have available aged textiles for their use.
Wool and other textiles will be used. Early pieces contained varied textiles (use what you had) for there were no wool stores for rug hooking in the 1800’s.
Burlap is used for a base. This is not a messy burlap. Your piece will be light weight just like an early rug.

Instructions will be given on hooking techniques, tricks on wearing fibers and finishing (no binding, this is an option though). 

The result will be a finished piece with the provenance of the 19th century. The students can apply these lessons for future projects. 

The feel of a piece is very light weight, fibers are worn, and colors are aged; this is hard to capture in a photo.

Summary: An unconventional class has many surprises! It will be a fun lesson and time passes quickly.

New Pattern Kits are available in December, 2018​

Price under pictures includes pattern on burlap and wool.

"Duxbury Rug"  - New Pattern

Step back into the 19th century. 
​Wonky windows with a light pumpkin color wool for roof. Border is a different textile than wool.

Measures approximately 12' by 22"
​Kit is $110.00

"Seven Sisters" - New Pattern!

Pattern was named after a vintage rose, this rose blooms only once a year.

​This is a gorgeous rug! 

Soft blacks with a touch of greys, very muted colors in the pot. Vining and rosebuds are muted but they make this pattern stand out. 

This is a larger piece, so you must be an aggressive rug hooker or having the understanding it may not be finished in class. This pattern kit is worth it!

Measures: 18" by 25"
Cost of Kit $140.00
