All of my kits come with a pattern drawn on linen with a generous 3 ½” - 4" serged border, a color photo and hand dyed wool strips that have been cut using a rotary cutter, mat and ruler. Wool strips will vary from a #8 - #8.5 cut {for the most part}. There may even be a few strips that are smaller or larger than a #8 - #8.5 cut.

When I design my kits I note the amount of wool strips used as I hook the design and then add 10-15% more wool strips to the kit than I used. If you hook higher or tighter than I do, you may need to purchase additional wool strips.

This is the only way I sell my kits. I do not offer kits with uncut wool.

I learned with a primitive Joan Moshimer hook. Here is the listing:

Most beginning hookers use a simple embroidery or quilting hoop to start with. You can pick one up at any fabric or craft store for a few dollars.

I use a 2” handmade hoop made by Etsy seller Barnett’s Hoops. It’s a wonderful hoop and worth every penny in my book.

Deanne Fitzpatrick has some wonderful videos on how to hook rugs and I have added a link for you below. Her style of finished rugs is a lot different from mine, but she does a wonderful job explaining everything you need to know.

I hope you find it helpful. I am a visual learner, so watching someone hook is much easier to understand than reading instructions {and hoping you're getting it right in my opinion}.

If you have any more questions, let me know and I'll try to help.
