Rug Hooking

Sapello, NM(Zone 5b)

Are there any traditional rug hookers out there? I've got a friend who is just learning, and she'd love to connect with others.

Have you heard of Rug Hooking Magazine? It's a great resource. I'm a beginner, but taught myself using a couple of ready made kits which are really helpful for learning.
Now I'm trying to expand a little... I was trying to get some feedback on the different types of frames.

I used to do a lot of rug hooking but from a pattern printed on the canvas, I don't like the ones where you have to count across on a blank canvas. I can't find any that I can hook from a printed pattern in my area.

I have used a kit that I bought at Hobby Lobby(first project), the second I found some online and ordered. There are a number of sites selling kits with pre printed designs if you google Traditional rug hooking. This last rpoject, I'm using an old burlap chilisack with a good design. That's kind of fun. so, no counting in any of these.

What kind of frame did you use? there are some new ones that seem to use a kind of velcro that attaches to the frame. I think I would lke this and am just wondering if anyone else has tried it?

I don't use a frame..I like to fold them on my lap..it makes it easier for me to do & I can do it while watching tv. I used to order from mary Maxim..but they don't always have good yarn..I like the thick yarn.
