Hooking with Friends! 

 We are bringing the Hooked, Line, and Sinker Rug Hooking Club to life!!!  Starting in July (2022) we are setting the Second Saturday, from 10:00 til 2:00 aside for open hooking in the studio. We will have sooooo much fun. Just bring your stuff and settle in.  No charge, but feel free to shop  :) 

We still have the virtual clubhouse running on Facebook with over 3,000 members.....Hooked, Line, and Sinker Rug Hooking Club.  But seeing faces and rugs in person is so much more fun.   Join us anytime you are in the Rhode Island area.

 Open Studios Event

at the Mill at Shady Lea 

 This is a great indoor outdoor event for the family.  All of the artists' and artisans' studios are open for a peek at how we create. In addition to the studio demonstrations, local writers bring their latest works for book signings and if we're lucky, some readings.  The historic textile mill is a gem to explore in itself.  Hope you can join us!

We have a series of beginner classes scheduled for the summer.  Anyone (Yes, even if you have never tried to hook) can take one or two or all the classes. Each class is $20 for a 3-hour session.  Class size is limited to 6-8 people.
