    I have found myself allergic to ‘Burlap’ but there are several OTHER backings, correct? Please can you show them on your website? One is a kind of whitish color and can’t recall the name of it. Thanks from Bea in southern Oregon…USA.

    Because of the Art major at Indiana University there are many artists in Bloomington, Indiana.
    However, Martina Celerin is in a class by her self when it comes to fiber arts. I think you would be amaze to see her dimensional weaving at Martina Celerin. com
    She has a doctoral degree from University of Western Ontario. think you will see the love of plants in her work.
    Take a look. Carol.

    Attn Joe: Your Hollyhock Rug is so beautiful. If you entered it in a show it would definitely be a winner! Congratulations to you and your daughter for being the recipient! It’s going to be the highlight of the room she places it in.

    Joe, love the hollyhocks—they really pop and look 3 dimensional. An artist whose work I find fascinating from the DFW area is Rebecca Shewmaker. I have yet to see her stuff in person, but hope to some day.

    While there are many artists in New Brunswick who have inspired me, you, Deanne are at the top the list. Each week is a booster shot to my ideas and hopes for hooking. Thank you. Jean

    William Matthews is a painter in Lillooet, B.C. who has inspired me.
    Millie McKenzie is an indigenous mosaic artist here who has also inspired me.
    Saul Terry is a local indigenous artist of long standing here. I am particularly drawn to his large painting on the fishing rocks at Bridge River fishing grounds.

    Would you recommend Design School for first year members of The Harbour?

    (Or is The Harbour enough / all encompassing for now?)

    Thank you :)

    Some trees are sacred in Celtic culture, particularly the oak, which this tree reminds me of.

    Shading. Thank you I’m new

    I love the way you hook and the color blue you are using. Will this rug ever be available as a kit? Thank you for all your inspiration, (I am currently taking that course). I am also interested in Color School so good to hear you speaking about it now. Thank you! Debbie
