I’ve really been enjoying hooking and listening to some of my favourite DVDs. Today I popped in Gene Shepherd’s “Rug Hooking – Learn at Home series – vol. 1 and 2“. I love the short segments with little reminders on technique.
The DVDs, in case you’re wondering, cover the gamut from beginning to hook, to fine shading. Short 5 to 10 minute segments cover the basics in volume 1, such as how to hook and hooking different shapes. Volume 2 covers fine shading, using dip dyed fabric, and scrap fabric to hook a rose. Some of the material can be found on YouTube. But to get the true value of these DVDs, I suggest buying them and watching them several times. There is a lot of information there. Something new pokes out at me every time I watch.
Thanks Gene Shepherd!
