This page was design to offer suggestions on products a rug hooker would need. So if you are starting out or just would like to change or upgrade this would be a good place to start; these products are ones which we use. 

Hooking Frames from

The NeedleWorks Shop​

Jan and her husband, Darryl are making wonderful frames, originally made by Charles Fitzgerald.

On their site, you can see how the frames look ready for hooking, and then folded for storage. A handle can be positioned down as a dolly to carry your materials. The frame rotates continuously in either direction so you do not have to take your work off the frame.

Just click here to see the frames
Louise Tietjen, a good friend of mine from PA has a very interesting blog which you can visit.  Louise has a beautiful home with many prized antiques and of course wonderful hooked rugs.  Please visit Dogwood Farm by clicking on this link.
