Rug hooking is both an art and a craft where rugs are made by pulling loops of wool fabric or yarn through a backing material such as linen, monks cloth or rug warp.  Designs for the rugs are often commercially produced and can be as complex as flowers or animals to as simple as geometrics. Rug-hooking has been popular in North America for at least the past 200 years and today has evolved into two genres, which primarily fall into groups based upon the width of the wool strip used to create a rug: fine hooking and primitive hooking. 


Whether you choose primitive or traditional, Sarah will be excited to help you with design, colors and technique so you can complete your project while having fun.



Sarah Guiliani, a certified McGown Rug Hooking Instructor and Director of the ATHA Region 1 School South. She teaches at several rug schools throughout the United States as well as teaching several classes in her studio and home state where she educates the public on what a remarkable media rug hooking is.


She is pleased to say that several of her students have had rugs featured in Rug Hooking Magazine and Celebrations. 



This class will explore the world of all cuts ranging from the antique look to modern interpretations.  Students should plan to work with a variety of textures, spots, and overdyed wool. The workshop will include current rug hooking topics, tips and techniques. Students are contacted prior to workshop to discuss rug pattern, custom designs, and color choices. 


She loves working with students in all types of hooking from fine cut tapestry to wide cut primitives suggesting embellishments to enhance the outcome of the hooked piece. In addition to custom drawing patterns, she will also work with commercial patterns helping you successfully complete your project.  Students may begin a new project or spark up an existing project.


Classes and workshops will include current rug hooking topics, tips, and techniques. She likes to work with a variety of textures, spots, color values and overdyed wool.
