Welcome to The Wool
We are so glad you
happened by for a visit! This is the best place to find all the
information you need about The Wool Street Journal magazine. Our
magazine is dedicated to primitive rug hooking.
The Wool Street Journal began
publishing in April 2002. It is created and printed in Colorado Springs,
Colorado. Each issue is designed to inspire and teach with pictures and
stories from our readers. Every rug hooker has a story that can inspire
and encourage another rug hooker – a novice or expert. We invite you to
share your story and rugs on the pages of a future issue of The Wool
In each issue
you'll find interesting articles, rug hooker profiles, overdyeing
formulas, free patterns, and a host of information about rug hooking
shops and events. You can subscribe right here, and get any back issues that are still available.
And here's a bonus - we offer the rug hooking patterns of
The Wool Street Journal, some of which are taken directly from the
pages of our magazine.
Our daughter, Tina, is the keeper of the
patterns at gwoolikers.
pattern for the Corina doll, pictured above, is in the January 2005
back issue - available while supplies last!
