I am a rug hooker and teach rug hooking classes in my home as well as at camps and workshops around the country. I live in Overland Park, KS. I love using lots of plaids, textures and antique paisley in my rugs and hook mostly in wide cut (#6-9). I received my McGown certification in 2001. I love to share my knowledge and passion for hooked rugs with my students.
I have the last of the photos from Caraway to post today, but before I do I want to make mention of the loss of a great lady, Nancy Butts Thompson. I never got to meet her, but she was supposed to be in my class at Caraway---we had chatted on the phone before camp but her bout with cancer prevented her from coming...I had so looked forward to meeting her and had brought my Hooking on the Hill book for her to sign...she will be missed.

Well, today and tomorrow I finish my preparation and packing for Libertyville.
