As I was sorting thru some boxes over "shelterin in place" I cam across a few rug hooking supplies that I'd like to get rid of. The cutter is already gone, but I have the following sets of hand dyed fabric (most of it dyed by Bev Conway who taught here years ago) I'd like to find a new home for the fabric.
The wool is 100% wool and it is all hand dyed. some has a plaid or herringbone or check weave beneath the dye - the rest is dyed over solid white. I believe she used Dorr Mill wool for the base. Each piece was priced differently - seems like the rug hookers do it that way like the quilters. Where the quilters have a "fat quarter" that is a set size, hookers seem to have slight variation in their sizes - hence the different prices per piece. But I measured 5 or 6 of these to get an idea - they all seem to be 16-18" wide and range from 25 - 29" long - as expected the pieces I measured that had a $7.50 price tag on them were about 17-18" wide and 29" long and the $6 pieces were the 16" - 24-25" long.
I have grouped them by colors to sell them. The first 4 sets are of 10 pieces each. The original prices on each piece range from 6 - 7.50. They are in good shape (were kept in a cool place in sealed zippered bags-no moth problems). So the original price of each set (and I purchased these a few years ago, so no doubt they would cost more now) would be about $67.50 based on averaging the prices. I'm offering each at $45. I will not break sets - if it gets down to nit picking pieces, I'd just as soon give them to a friend. So they are sold in sets as shown. The second set of fabrics are bundled in groups of 7 for $30 and below that are various kits and also some patterns on monkscloth! So scroll down!
Each of these first four sets of 10 fabric squares each are now only $45 (the pieces in each range in price from $6 - $7.50 at their original price and nothing has been used from them).
10 piece collections 100% wool originally about $67 value: now just $45
These next 2 collections have 7 pieces only - these are $30 each (again, each piece was originally in the $6 - $7.50 range) These are now $30 each
7 piece collections 100% wool for rug hooking - orginal value about $47 - now just $30
Here are 2 ktis - the kits include the pattern on monkscloth and directions - but not the fabric strips
This kit is for a hooked bag. Both front and back are hooked, so there is a lot of monkscloth here and the design is a wonderfully dense floral. Instructions include how to sew the hooked pieces to make a wonderful bag. This was originally $28 or $30 - now, Price: $10
Here are some patterns only - but you might use the monkscloth for your own pattern, I suppose, if you didn't care about the design. I dont' know what monkscloth sells for these days? But maybe this is a deal?
This 3 horsemen rug design is 19.5 x 36" finished. Although she showed it in almost a monotype color palette, I had originally intended to make it much more colorful - and maybe even put mallets in their hands as an ode to my polo playing years! Price: $15
This is a popular "Star" rug pattern that Bev designed. I've seen it hooked many times over and because there are so many creative ways to play with the stars in each square - and their background - it always looks great. If I ever thought I would hook again, this is the pattern I'd do myslef. The design/finished rug is 25 x 38. Price: $15
This pattern called Music in the Stars features an angel with a horn amidst stars, bordered. I love this pattern too, but since I don't really celebrate the holidays and it seems like a "festive" rug, it would be lost in my home! It measures 18 x 40 and was originally $30. Buy it today for $15.00
