One of the hardest parts about trying out a new craft is making sure you have everything you need to get started; of course, having all of the supplies you need on hand will make learning something new much less frustrating! Many of our customers are curious to try rug hooking, so we've not only assembled a list of supplies you'll need to get started (see below), we've created a short video as part of our "Ask the Woolery" series on YouTube!
You can watch the video above to get an overview of several techniques and tools used to create beautiful hooked rugs. From beginner to advanced, there is a rug hooking project for everyone - and after watching this video, you'll have a better idea of which type of technique is right for you!

All the best,
