Fraktur Designs in Rug Hooking Magazine

Barbara Ebersol Star Flower Mat hooked by Susan Feller

The Sept/Oct 2011 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine includes an article by Susan titled: Frakturs for Designing, Old Pennsylvania German Artwork Finds a New Place.  Using Barbara Ebersol a Lancaster, PA artist of the late 1880’s to introduce Frakturs to the readership, Feller includes several design motifs as free patterns.  The topic is a research favorite which has culminated in a product DESIGN IN A BOX- Frakturs available through the shop at Ruckman Mill Farm
