NYS Sheep & Wool Festival - Workshop Registration

Maureen Rugar

I have been an avid rug hooker since 1977, being taught by my husband’s Grandmother. My enjoyment of this wonderful art has spurred me on to learn from the finest teachers, and attend as many rug camps and workshops as possible.

In 1983 I began my journey as a teacher to pass  my knowledge of rug hooking on. Working from my studio in La Grangeville, NY.  I teach classes in finely shaded to wide cut, and hand torn primitive hooking.  In addition, I also teach specialized workshops in rug hooking and braiding to dye classes.

Currently I am serving my second consecutive term as President of the Dutchess County Rug Hookers Guild, also having served once before in 1989. I was also owner of New Earth Designs, a rug hooking pattern design company, now owned by Jeanne Benjamin of Brookfield, MA.

2017 has me celebrating 34 years of teaching hooking to enthusiastic rug hookers and hope you will join me in my current classes being offered here for the beginner as well as advanced student at the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival
