Lolly and Ellen have been interested in fiber arts since they were able to hold a needle as children. They have a rug hooking studio called Needles in the Nest in the Santa Cruz mountains in California. They have a line of hand dyed rug yarn and wool fabric called Wool in the Woods and have created a catalogue for you of their colors for ease in color planning and ordering wool or yarn. They enjoy passing on the American tradition of rug hooking to others so that others can experience the joy of designing and making something beautiful with their own hands. Both Lolly and Ellen are certified Amy Oxford punch needle rug hooking instructors.
