In this class we are going to look at several different binding methods for hooked rugs and pillows. I think finishing your hooked rugs is very important.

Do you want to build your creative confidence, and hook in a painterly style. Do you want to make rugs that draw people in? Do you want to hook rugs that are unmistakably art.
