Wool Poppies

Monika Jones

Monika Jones, designer of Folk Art Landing patterns, teaches traditional rug hooking, specializing in textured, over dyed wool and wider cut strips for a quaint and seasoned look. Her rug hooking patterns draw inspiration from primitive and antique rugs. These rugs have the "High Country" twist that can complement any style of decorating.

Monika encourages students to reflect their personal style through a wide range of techniques and guides each student to choose colors and textures to create an individual look for their rug. Her open class at Hooker Hill will focus on color planning, working with textured wool, mixing strip sizes, hooking techniques for motifs and backgrounds (including "messy hooking"), piecing a pattern foundation, blocking, and several edge finishing techniques.

More about Monika's rug hooking experiences and pattern designs can be found on her blog and Facebook page.
