NEW!  2018 Rug Camp in Round Top Texas with Marijo Taylor - March 11-15
Our NEW RUG HOOKING WORKSHOP in Round Top Texas! This camp will be held at Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic™ historic farm 'The Prairie'. Our teacher is Marijo Taylor. Come and enjoy this beautiful area, the special town of Round Top and the delightful Texas country atmosphere of The Prairie!

Marijo Taylor's love for hooked rugs began over 30 years ago while working in an antique store. Her designs reflect her love of antique textiles and her connection to wildlife, as well as garden-inspired rugs. There is a coziness to her designs, a bit of sweetness and charm using color, value, and neutrals to create movement and interest. Taylor's color palette, using cuts 6-8.5, often reflects those colors found in primitive-style rugs that have faded over time. Her goal is to help others become more confident in how they choose and use color in their own work.

Marijo will be teaching her own patterns for this workshop. You may choose from her wide selection of designs and sizes, also available here on the website. You may bring your own wool or ask Marijo to provide your pattern and color-plan your chosen design especially for you.
