Hello my creative or soon to be creative friends. Welcome to my workshop page, I am ready for a year filled with creative zest and laughter with you all.

This year I will continue to have an Open Studio on the first Sunday of each month from 9am-1pm and on the same day host Happy Hookers creative afternoon tea.

Happy Hookers creative afternoon teas offer a chance to socialize, create and be inspired all in one.

If want to get in early for 2024, you make like to book a Happy Hookers 2024 Package. Package holders are priority attendees, so you will never miss out.

This year, I will be offering private rug making sessions. So if you have a project in mind and need help getting it off the ground this might be a good option for you. You can also learn Punch needle Rugmaking this way. See Private-Semi Private sessions for more information. You may also have a group of friends or work colleagues in need of some creative bonding time, I can host up to 10 people.

Of course I will be offering Punch Needle Rugmaking, Bohemian Braid as full day workshops.

For those of you who have attended one of my Punch Needle Rug Making Workshops, and you need a kickstart or a refresher, Rug Makers Day Out is a great option. A full day of Rug Making and Socializing and you receive 10% discount off supplies on the day.

Indigo Dye and Shibori is on the cards too, just finding the right time, I love this workshop and look forward to getting my hands blue with you all email me if this sounds like your cup of tea.

I will be on the road again this year, sharing my passion for Rugmaking, this year Punch Needle Rugmaking in Monto is slated for July 20 and 21.

Also if you have a group of 6 and would like to book a personalized group session of any of the workshops, please email me for details. I hope to see your bright ,shiny, happy faces soon.

Punch Needle Taste Tester

March 17, 2024 9:30 am11:30 pm

Come try this Punch Needle Rug Making, this technique that mimics my own process of hand tufting without all the infrastructure. A simple hand-held tool, a backing cloth stretched tight onto a frame and some hand dyed wool, is all you need to catch the bug. I call this Rugmaking for the modern maker, it is simple, fast and addictive. This 2 hour workshop teaches you the basics of punch needle and allows time to explore the technique, without the pressure of having to complete a piece. Wool and backing fabric for practice rug making provided, please note there will be no take home projects.
