Welcome to my blog . . . I am Sally Van Nuys, owner and artist at Folk ‘n’ Fiber, Folk Art & Rug Hooking. Rug hooking and folk art painting are my passions! I love antiques, painting, & fiber art, and it’s a pleasure to share it with all of you! One of my favorite artistic endeavors is finding old or cast-off objects that I can reclaim and make beautiful or functional again with paint or wool!
I currently sell my designs from my web site, Folk ‘n’ Fiber and also design rug hooking projects for Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher magazine. I have an Etsy shop for Folk ‘n’ Fiber where you will find some of my patterns, magazine models, and other things I have created for fun. I also have a second Etsy shop where I sell antiques & vintage treasures – Vintage on the Ridge.
I will try to be diligent about coming here to share thoughts, inspirations, accomplishments, projects, and other stuff with you all — I hope there is a “you all” to read it! So poke around here and see how I am progressing. You can start in the Archives over there on the right column for blog posts, or there are pages of rug hooking Q&A, accessible from the top menu.
I am happy to exchange links with other rug hooking enthusiasts, shops, and shows.
