There are no upcoming workshops scheduled. Check back often or join our mailing list so you don’t miss out.
Periwinkle Laine’s rug hooking retreats are fun and affordable. Our retreats are in person events and last for one or two days. Retreats vary but most include instruction, socializing and plenty of time for hooking in a relaxed creative environment. Stepping away from your daily life to learn a new skill, connect with like minded people and be creative provides a boost to mental health.
