Quality Patterns and Kits for Traditional and Contemporary Rug Hooking

Laura Kenyon and Debra Walland

We are the Seaside Sisters, yes, biologic sisters,  who love the art and craft of traditional rug hooking  and want to share it. We are the caretakers of Jackye Hansen's rug patterns to keep her traditional art available.  We also design contemporary patterns and kits.

We got started by visiting Jacqueline Hansen in her home studio in Maine for a week to take our first rug hooking class.  That was in 2006.  We have been busy since then.

Laura Kenyon is a two-time finalist in Celebrations as well as being published in Rug Hooking Magazine for her wonderful hooking.  She received her teacher certification  from the Pearl McGown Guild and is an active board member. She lives in Rhode Island. 

Debra Walland is the southern sister now living in South Carolina.  Her rugs have been published in both the ATHA magazine and Rug Hooking Magazine.  She is the pattern designer with the some wild, creative, contemporary patterns as well as more subdued pieces.

Our mission is to keep the tradition of hand-hooking rugs alive and flourishing.  We are keeping Mrs. Hansen's classic rug patterns, Jacqueline Designs, available  for the next generations. She is a historian, fine artist, and teacher of rug hooking of the highest eschelon.

 We  are also continuing to add fresh new designs to keep the craft interesting and modern. We hope to pass along  some of the joy of pulling loops through linen.  We welcome questions and challenges and offer help in searching for something special.
