FALL WORKSHOP 2022 with Tricia Travis
October 5th – 7th, 2022

9:00 am – 3:30 pm

no Hook-In on October 8th, 2022

I teach an “open class” and students are free to choose one of my patterns or a pattern of their choice from other designers.  My website patterns include postcard adaptations, primitive, and geometric patterns.  Class time will focus on shortcuts, problem areas made easy, fine-tuning color values, using textures, and hooking tips for our class rugs.  I will bring lots of hand-dyed wool for the class based on your requests.

Tricia Travis Biography

My passion for rug hooking began with collecting early American antiques and discovering that I wanted hooked rugs to go with my antique furniture. I began hooking primitive rugs and dyeing my own wool in 1988. My shop, Country Gatherings LLC, opened in 2001, in San Antonio, Texas and has been the home of workshops and multiple rug hooking groups for many years. I have enjoyed teaching the art of rug hooking and am currently the national president of ATHA where I am actively involved with the mission to teach rug hooking. My work has been featured in many publications and I enjoy teaching postcard rug adaptations, primitive rugs, and geometrics at home and in other areas of the country. Check out my website for examples of my popular patterns and work.
