The premier issue came out this fall for FiberArtNow Magazine and it included two articles featuring RUGHOOKING! Liz Alpert Fay is introduced to the readership in her studio and the Beyond Rugs! contemporary exhibit at the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland Maine is reviewed.

We are thrilled to have an official logo honoring the log home Jim built and the era of time we both are reliving… the Arts and Crafts period of the early 1900’s.
Michael Anderson is our graphic designer, web creator, fellow artist, and friend. I have found him to be easy to discuss concepts with and the magic in cyberspace he has worked should make your visits enjoyable.
Let us know of any problem, difficulty or enjoyable clicks while on the site, so we can improve it.
Enough of the thank yous, ENJOY and come back soon. Susan and Jim
We have chosen a slogan and are using it throughout our advertising campaign beginning in 2011.
“Everybody needs FIBER.” and “Every body needs FIBER.”
Since we are immersed in the textile world specializing in woolen fabric for rughooking, the first version is adressing the “addiction” craftspeople flaunt. We all need FIBER. Our other time is spent raising vegetables, flowers and poultry on our farm in Hampshire County living as close as possible a sustainable lifestyle. Every BODY does need fiber to survive.
