ABOUT US

I first started rug hooking in the 1990's. At that time, I had just learned to spin the wool from my flock of sheep and goats, and was on the lookout for something fun to do with all that yarn. Once I discovered hooking with yarn, I was... (wait for it)... hooked!

When I was out and about doing fiber shows, I would hook on my first rug. People seemed very interested. The craft is pretty well-known on the East Coast, but in the Pacific Northwest, it was new! I started offering classes, created my own designs, and Little House Rugs was born!
What's different about Little House Rugs is that we specialize in custom design. Everything from yarn, patterns, kits and hand-hooked finished rugs. So when you see a design on this website, you can order it in that size, shape or color scheme, or you can ask for changes. You're dealing with the artist. I figure it's your yarn, pattern, kit or rug, so it should be perfect for you.
                                                                                
Right?

(Maybe someday when I'm rich and famous, I won't be able to offer all this groovy custom work, but needless to say, that hasn't happened yet!)
                                                        
CUSTOM RUG HOOKING

Or maybe you have an idea for an entirely new design. I can help you through every step of the process, from getting your design on linen, creating yarns in your colors, or hooking the design for you.
RUG REPAIR

One of the best things about hand-hooked rugs is that they last so long (a hundred years or so) If you put a rug on the floor, it's bound to get stained, snagged or worn over time. Fortunately, hooked rugs can always be repaired or updated, so they last for generations. Do you have a hooked rug in need of repair, or a rug that needs some sprucing up? Have you inherited an unfinished rug? You've come to the right place!
