Beginners: Choosing the Right Rug Hooking Kit

A nice guide published by eBay
Includes links to buy kits & supplies
Rug hooking kits make the process of hooking very fun and easy for both beginners and experienced designers. All kits have a printed pattern on an easy weave burlap, linen, or cotton rug warp. They also include uncut wool fabric or pre-cut wool strips, along with an instruction manual. Kits also have a colored pattern example to give users an idea about color placement on the final design. Kits are available with patterns of different designs and sizes. Note that other materials needed for hooking, such as the hook and the frame are usually not included in the kit, so users must buy them separately.
