The second half of 2021 is looking promising for more in-person events in the U.S. For me, one of the more exciting prospects has been teaching at rug schools. I’m so excited to see fellow rug hookers again, and work on projects in person together. One of the great parts of rug hooking is learning new techniques and methods together, and enjoying the company of fellow rug hooking enthusiasts.

I have two rug schools that I will be teaching at this year. The first is Rugs by the Sea, which is located in Cape May, New Jersey and will be held over two weeks in September. I’ll be teaching an open class during the first week, from the 12th through the 17th of September. Rugs by the Sea is located at the Chalfonte, which is a historic post-Civil War hotel, with views of the Atlantic Ocean. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to get away, and would enjoy some time working with me on a hooking project, this school might be a great option for you! You can get registration information and more details by sending an email to Linda Woodbury, a co-director of the school, at

The second school is the ATHA Region 1 Rug School North, which is located in Meredith, New Hampshire. The school will take place from the 17th to the 20th of October. Meredith is located on Lake Winnipesaukee, just south of the White Mountains, which is a truly beautiful area. The school is held at the Church Landing Resort, which has phenomenal views of the lake. In October, the foliage is beautiful too – it will be a great experience! I will also be teaching an open class at Meredith. If the ATHA Region 1 Rug School sounds of interest, please contact the director, Pam Bartlett at

Both of these schools have been operating for many, many years, and have been international rug hooking attractions – people attend from across the U.S., Canada, and as far away as Japan! I’m excited to teach in person again, and hopefully I’ll be able to see some of you.
