Laurie Wiles – Open Class


Come join me for a fun week of hooking, where the sky is the limit. Brighten up and finish an old project or start something new. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced rug hooker you will enjoy this class. Feel free to explore any and all aspects of rug hooking, any style or cut, extra large to extra small. This class will follow student desires and will be geared to what individuals want to learn. I am willing to help with design, colour planning and every aspect you need to develop a one of a kind project.
