WHAT IS A HOOK IN?  WHO IS WELCOME?

 

A hook-in is a term used by rug hookers for an event that is usually one day (sometimes 2 or 3 days) of crafters getting together and having a good time.

You bring your crafting supplies, Sit and enjoy a day of crafting while catching up with old friends and making new ones.

WHO IS WELCOME? At almost every hook in; it is not just rug hookers (crafters that pull loops of wool fabric through linen to make a rug ) who are welcome but also: those who do Wool applique’, Needle punch, Rug punch, crotchet, knitting, Wool penny rugs, embroidery, Crewel work, Cross stitch. Basically if you do a low volume craft that involves the love of fabric, threads and notions you can get through the gate J

ARE BEGINNERS WELCOME?  Yes! Yes! Yes! A hook in is the absolute best possible place for you!  One of the things that make a hook in such a fantastic experience is taking in what everyone is working on, what tools they are using, where they get their supplies and of course what other hook-ins, camps or retreats they enjoy. Questions and talking are definitely a high priority at hook ins. The more conversations going on at one time, the better.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RUG HOOKING CAMP, A HOOK-IN AND A RETREAT? A rug hooking camp is usually a group of structured classes that also may act as a hook in while classes are going on.

A secret to enjoying any class: Know what your teacher specializes in. Some teachers do fine cut rug hooking, Some do wide cut rug hooking, Some applique’ classes are not for absolute beginners. There are so many fantastic teachers out there and it is an absolute joy to take classes but it really helps you and the teacher if you know what the teacher specializes in or if you like their work.

A hook-in is a non-structured day (or days) that may have mini classes going on that you can sign up for during the time you are there. Almost all hook-ins invite vendors to travel and set up booths. This is a wonderful opportunity to finally meet that website or shop that posts on facebook but never have a chance to drive to their shop.

A rug hooking retreat is non-structured and more laid back couple of days of rug hooking. If there are demonstrations or classes they can be more impromptu or not set in stone. A retreat may not have a teacher to help color plan or teach techniques (each are different,So please be sure to read a registration. If it says retreat, it is more often not for beginner rug hookers but more for a rug hooker that just wants a few days around a smaller group than a camp or hook-in).
