Instructor Biography
Patty Van Arsdale

 Patty Van Arsdale, from New Albany, IN, began rug hooking in 1999. Her first rug is still in use on the floor to this day! Her love of fabric started when her mother taught her to sew her own clothes at an early age. She has hooked nearly 200 items and they include, not only rugs for the floor, but wall hangings, purses, stool and bench covers, fashion items, clocks and pouches used by rug camp-attendees! She has traveled to many states to participate in dozens of rug hooking classes.
 
Patty simply enjoys creating and teaching! Classes she has taught include paper jewelry-making, line-dancing, and aerobics. She was a personal trainer at the time she was introduced to rug hooking. Patty became a certified instructor with the National Guild of Pearl McGown Hookrafters in 2007. She considers one of her highest achievements  being selected as a winner of the international Rug Hooking Magazine’s annual “Celebration of Rugs XV (2005)” for her rug, “It’s A Keeper”. And again in 2009 for “Live, Love, LOL J”. She authored an article for Rug Hooking Magazine about special hooking stitches and techniques which were used in her popular pattern, “Flower Power”.
 Patty is a member of ATHA (Association of Traditional Hooking Artists) and will become their Region 6 Regional Representative in September 2016. In 2009 she was a committee chair for the ATHA Biennial held in Louisville, KY. She is also a founding member of her region’s local rug hooking guild, Buffalo Trace Rug Hookers.
 
If you are interested in learning the art of rug hooking or adding to your hooking skills, Patty will hold classes in her home or travel to you for a group class.  She also has many rug hooking patterns and kits available for all skill levels.
