Are there any rug hookers out there???

Toledo, OR(Zone 8a)

I am just getting into the rug hooking craft and i am loving it. I was lucky enough to score a great wool cutter off ebay. They normally sell this brand for $240 but this was a vintage one and the bidding started at $40. WOW! I thought. I will place a bid and maybe I can get it for about $100. Mine was the only bid and I got it for $40. I am freaking out. I got it and it works great. Of course it is vintage but then so am I and I still function pretty darn good and so does this cutter. The next week one sold for $150. Same thing. Go figure. I do believe that God was looking out for me. Or maybe I have a guardian angle up there.
Any way, I am just wondering if there are any other Hookers out there??? heheh.
This is such a great past time and I have already created some cool stuff. This was the last one that I hooked. I think I posted it before but I was just hoping that maybe there was some one else that does this too that I can share with.

This is a good price

ebay has a bunch

I just saw this one and if you can get it this is an excellent frame.
