Maryland Shores Rug Hooking

I haven't attended the April rug camp in many years.  Since I was self-taught this was the venue for my very first rug camp.  I wanted to unlearn bad habits and find out how to hook the right way.  It was convenient as it is only an hour away from my house.  But of course I would stay at the hotel to enjoy the fun and cerebral happiness that is shared among hookers.

Below is a photo taken with Eric Sandberg as my teacher in 2006.  Twelve years later he is my teacher again this year.  Eric is helping me color plan Birds and Pomegranates, a design by Edyth O'Neill which was in a book for me to copy.  I'm on the floor and friend Shari is on the other side of Eric.
Below I'm still soaking up whatever it is Eric is teaching during class.
Since I'm unable to post photos from my iPad, I'm preparing blog posts at home and saving them to publish once at camp.  Yeah, I'm cheating Blogger.  But will take photos while I'm here at camp which you will see once I return home.

Here is how the Birds and Pomegranates turned out.


  1. Have fun can't wait until I see your pictures.

  2. Always love that mat when I first saw it,,,
