Portrait of Sally Van Nuys

Sally Van Nuys is both a folk artist and an instructor. She creates original hooked rug and punch-needle patterns for her own work and for sale. Her hooked-rug and needle-punch embroidery designs reflect her preference for primitive and Early American colors and design.

As an instructor, her work keeps her busy doing what she loves—teaching others these historic art forms. She holds informal studio classes at her business, Amherst Folk Art & Rug Hooking, in northern Ohio. In addition to teaching, she sells supplies and kits for making your own hooked rugs and needle-punch embroidery. She has been in business since 1984.

Van Nuys also designs rug hooking and punch needle projects for Create & Decorate magazine.
