Getting more press...'s been just a whirlwind of activity around here the past several months!
Today the October issue of The Wool Street Journal arrived! My studio is the feature in Wool Street Anywhere, USA!
I hope you'll check it out...I so pleased to share some wonderful rugs and a few of the many hooker friends who gather here...and a "freebie" pattern, too!

We had a great turn out at the 12th annual Autumn Valley Hook-in on October 3rd in Stillwater. I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to take any pictures. I've spent the last few weeks trying to restock the shelves...keeping up with classes and working on some commissioned pieces that have come my way since the EAL Directory went out.

"A Sampler" this year's project rug is now complete and I'll be working on cutting the wool kits for Part 4...I should have them in the mail by the end of the week!
I'll also be back in the dyepots...a new shipment of yarn arrived from the mill and I need to get BUSY!

Hoping that the wintery weather we've been having here in MN will turn to FALL. Feel a wee bit cheated this year. The summer drought and the early snowfall have robbed us of the glorious fall colors...Hope it's better in your neck of the woods...
Wishing you glorious colors everyday! ~L


  1. Congratulations on your feature. How exciting! And I love your sampler.

  2. Congratulations on the Wool Street Journal article! There's no one more deserving than you Laurie! I'm very inspired and hope to get back to hooking and dyeing soon! Mom is here and doing good after her surgery but it is still busy with caring for her! I received the mahogony dye in the mail. Thanks so much for that! It was such a pleasure meeting you at Stillwater if even for just a few minutes! Cathy G

  3. Yay! you! congratulations and best wishes.

  4. Congrats Laurie! Hubby and I are taking a trip up your way to see family the end of the month. I can't wait to see what new goodies you have in the shop! Looking forward to seeing you in WSJ.
    So happy for you.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a note...I love to hear from you!
