Hand-hooked Rugs & Whimsical Folk Art at Old Crow Farm
It seems that 2017 has just whizzed by...and we are almost into the Winter season. Even Christmas is coming up fast...! I am still enjoying rug hooking and my home in Vancouver, Wa.
My Pattern Project is still "on hold" for the present. I will post here when I am able to get started with it once again! :)
I am still trying to find a printer close to me to print some of the patterns I have.
ALSO...I just want to let you know that I do not make patterns for All of my rugs.
I am primarily a folk artist creating either wholly original work or original adaptations of ancient art, medieval art, etc.
Although I will be happy to offer Some of my copyrighted designs for patterns, some are not meant to be duplicated.
Thank you for understanding about the patterns that I will share and those I want to keep as "one-of-a-kind"!
I will certainly post here and on my Blog when I get back to my pattern project...!
For those of you who have asked...
(My hand hooked rugs range in price from approx $300.00 to $1,500.00, depending upon the size and the design. I will post here on the website when any are available.
Thank you for visiting! In this tranquil setting, I hope you will enjoy traveling back with me to a time of "simple folks and gentle pleasures".
These days, my inspiration comes from vintage hooked rugs, old painted furniture, American and European folk art, fraktur illustrations and antique embroidered samplers.
Here at Old Crow Farm, I feature my original designs and I also enjoy hooking a limited number of reproductions. My finished work can be seen and purchased directly from me when available.
Most of my designs use #3, #4, #5, #6, and #8 cut strips and are hooked in the folk art style. You may hook them in any style you want...!!! :)
Regarding copyright: My original rug and pattern designs are copyrighted and may not be copied or used for commercial purposes... as that is what I get to do with them myself! They will be for personal use only...but you can enlarge more or reduce them for your personal use!
A special note: Please do not copy artist-original rugs or patterns. Many of our rug designers creating today work long and hard to design patterns for your enjoyment...and copying their work, even "just for my own use" is stealing! Please purchase their delightful designs from them and give them the proper credit.
I often will use permission free designs of antique art works and I will tell you that I have adapted the design from a work that is in the public domain.
My antique reproductions (or close adaptations) are from rugs/frakturs/samplers/etc. in the public domain and I do not claim copyright on the source designs. However, if I have adapted and used them in a new and creative way, my rug IS copyrighted.
Thank you for visiting! Happy Hooking! Sunnie : )
