Portrait of Rebecca J. Buckwalter

Rebecca Buckwalter has always had a love for old things. That love led to a keen interest in needlework which, in turn, led to a desire to learn the art of primitive rug hooking. She learned hooking by following the step-by-step photos in a publication. That was eleven years ago. She became hooked! Because she found no one else in her area making rugs at that time, she developed her own style and technique.

Buckwalter attended her first rug-hooking camp about two years ago. Meeting so many others with the same interest proved habit forming, and she has just returned from another camp held at Ligonier, Pennsylvania, wher she further enhanced her skilled with a fantastic teacher, Barbara Carroll.

In making her rungs, Buckwalter uses both as-is and wool she has hand-dyed. Yard sales are a favorite haunt for finding the wool clothing for the next project.

Buckwalter opened her studio for instructing and helping others take a step back in our country's rich heritage of primitive rug hooking.
