Wool Rug Hooking Demo

Local resident, Holly Frantz, of Two Sister’s Wool couldn’t even finishing setting up her display early this Sat. morning before visitors to Lehman’s were asking her question about the old time craft of wool rug hooking.  Holly had examples of beautiful wall hangings, table runners, pillows and rugs she made using strips of recycled wool.  The style she uses in her rugs can be described as primitive although the same rug hooking techniques lend themselves to many different styles and tastes since the wool can be dyed and the patterns varied.

Holly brought her portable equipment which fits on a small table or a lap to give people in the store a chance to try the methods themselves.  One of the things that is apparent during Lehman’s Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild demos is how much Lehman’s customers appreciate seeing people working with their hands and making good use of what is on hand.  Wool rug hooking is just one example of doing just that.  Creativity, practicality and resourcefulness come together to create something lovely and interesting.

Two Wool Sister’s will be back again at various times this fall and winter so be sure to look at Lehman’s events calendar to check dates.   Also browse through the calendar to see what other treats are planned for the upcoming months.

About Sue Steiner

I am a professional artist living in the Kidron area. With a farming background and my love for animals and anything agricultural it was a natural fit when Lehman's asked me to paint the murals you see at the Kidron store. My biggest project to date was the mural of a life sized team of Amish work horses at the hitching post in the Buggy barn. I have the pleasure of adding to the murals on an ongoing basis as a painting demonstration during store hours on many Fridays. I also have the pleausre of bringing Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to the store for a wide variety of demos. You can find the demo schedule on this web site under the Events tab. It is always a pleasure to be in the store meeting new folks. I find Lehman's customers to be the very best, down to earth people! It is also my pleasure to help network with all the talented artists and crafters in the area.
