Quality Patterns, Kits, and Supplies for Traditional and Contemporary Rug Hooking
"I was introduced to rug hooking in 1984 through a friend while we were living in Pennsylvania. I attended many Moving to Florida in 1997 really gave me the chance to experiment with brighter colors and tropical designs. After hooking many rugs for the floor I started to experiment with various types of fibers either hooking them into the design or sewing them on. I found embellishing my pieces with beads, buttons, jewels, etc. to be lots of fun! Pillows and wall hangings lend themselves well to this technique. I have attended and also taught at various workshops over the years. After many requests to buy my patterns and dyed wool I started a small business supplying other hookers."

She welcomes any level of student from new to experienced. The class is an open class for any pattern or type of hooking Primitive to Fine-shading. Whatever you want to work on is fine with her.Here is some of her work
Deb Walland is teaching a beginner's class Starting from the basics, this class is for anyone especially if you have never held a hook. Working from a choice of two kits, the students don't need to bring anything. If you can bring a borrowed frame or a sturdy 14 inch quilting hoop (not embroidery hoop) that would be helpful. Also, bring a hook suitable for a 4 or 6 cut If not, let her know ahead and she will provide you with a frame or hoop, and a hook.
She has written several articles for the ATHA magazine, and has had her rugs featured by ATHA and Rug Hooking Magazine several times. Her rugs have been published in two books as well. She enjoys color. She goes by the "no rules" method but believes you need to know the rules before you decide to break them or ignore them.
