Thank you for visiting my website and wanting to know a little about me.
Breezy Ridge Rugs is located in Raywick, Kentucky. I have been in business since 1990. I started out as a shepherd, spinner and crafter offering my natural fibers and finished items for sale and slowly changed my focus to punch needle rug hooking. I specialize in everything punch needle rug hooking. All designs are for punch or traditional rug hookers. All designs are available on primitive linen or as a kit. Please contact me for pricing.
I am a folk art fiber artist dedicated to all types of rug hooking and specialise in punch needle rug hooking. I am a juried Kentucky Crafted fiber artist and certified punch needle rug hooking instructor. I have over 20 years experience developing and producing rug hooking designs. The designs can be completed with a variety of needlecraft/rug hooking techniques, yarns, textiles, and fibers.
I have been a vendor and had workshops in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, Georgia, and Missouri. Some of my work can be found in the following books and magazines:

” I have been on a creative journey all my life. I have been fortunate enough to have had talented women teach me the love of textiles and the skills to produce them. These women not only taught me “how to” create things but gave me the greatest gift, CREATIVE THINKING ENCOURAGEMENT. Through the years I have continued on my journey, learning “how to”, all the while searching for the perfect outlet for all my skills and energy. After a while, I knew in my heart I had “found my calling”. This traditional craft of punch needle rug hooking, offered me an outlet to use a combination of all my skills. I am very grateful to be able to work everyday doing what I love.”
