Quality Patterns, Kits, and Supplies 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.

Now , starting in January 2019 , we are the directors of SCRUB Hooking Schoool, formerly run by Anne Eastwood. There are three sessions a year and details are on the "SCRUB" page.  What an honor for Miss Anne to choose us to continue her school!

Laura Kenyon is a two-time finalist in "Celebration of Hand- Hooked Rugs" 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 teaches regularly in her home state of Rhode Island, and has taught in Hilton Head, as well as the Sebring SCRUB  Hooking School in Florida..She is a member of ATHA, Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild, and the McGown Guild.  

Debra Walland is the southern sister now living in South Carolina.  Her rugs have been published in both the ATHA magazine, Rug Hooking Magazine, and two books " Designed by You: Ideas and Inspiration for Rug Hookers" by Tamara Pavich (2018), and " Hooked on  Words" by Ellen Banker (2018) She is a member of the  American Craft Council, ATHA, The Fiber Guild of the Savannahs, and Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild.  Her designs are contemporary , fresh, and whimsical.

Our mission is to keep the tradition of hand-hooking rugs alive, fresh, 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.  She continues to teach and custom design and color plan rugs.
