“I’m Stacie Schaat – textile artist and author of the modern rug hooking book, Punched
As a mother of three, working from my small urban home, I cherish each rare, quiet moment to create and teach others about rug hooking.
As for myself, I discovered rug hooking after experiencing some creative burnout elsewhere (it happens!). I took what I thought was a much needed break from creating, but it only left a void, and my husband took note of that. That year for my birthday he gave me three different rug hooks, suggesting I try it out, and I’ve never looked back!
Sometimes I make and sell items or share my latest on social media, but my very favorite part of all of this is the community, and the opportunities I get to teach others about this beautiful craft, whether that’s through Punched, or workshops. I do hope to start teaching through video courses, as well, so keep your eyes open for that in the near(ish) future.
