Tid Bits of Betsy's Class

Betsy shared everything with her students and not just tid bits.  But since I'm not the teacher and this blog isn't big enough to handle 3 days of the teaching she shared it will be a teaser. 

This is a wonderfully soft torn strip chair pad which was  hooked by and for Betsy.  BUT, it was only for looks because I don't think she even sat on it.  Yet it was there if she needed it for demonstrations or relaxation.
And Betsy showed us how she does the Patchwork backing for her pillows, rugs, and critters.  In this picture you can see the different wools if you look carefully, and can also see she folds under the wool at the perimeter and there appears to be warm and natural or something under and between the wool and hooked front. 
Betsy also had a wonderful attachment she sells to hook to a table to assist in the braiding technique.
What was nice was that she also showed the class how she does the 'easy peasy'  Betsy style of attaching the braided edge around the rug. 
However, if you really want to get the full enjoyable class of Betsy, contact her to see when she will be in your area.  AND.....  if you aren't already on her wool sample list, please write her.  

Hooker Hugs and hope you keep Warm!!!!!!!  We can always use more wool to keep us warm.



  1. I am just catching up it sounds like a good camp and lots to learn. My guild has a lot of fine cut hookers. I am the wider the better.

  2. I bought a braid clamp from Betsy. Have I used it and added a braided edge to a rug? Of course!
    Hugs :)

  3. I love her star, that is beautiful, & the colors very appealing. That clap looks wonderful, and so very useful. I'm very glad you get to go to the camps and have such a great time, and I enjoy your sharing afterwards! Have a great day!

  4. Saundra, thanks so much for posting this, I am so wanting to hook a rug with a braided edge!!

  5. This looks like the kind of class I would have loved to be at.
    And yes, we will keep warm with lots of glorious wool ;)
