Sally has a BFA in art and 20 years experience as an award-winning graphic designer.  For years, she searched for a business that combined her love for color, painting and textiles.

Pine Island Primitives was started in 2001 when people asked for her patterns even before she was selling them.  She teaches primitive rug hooking with a special love for antique-looking rugs hooked in 8 to 10 cut.   You can learn from her at workshops and rug camps across the country as well as on her quaint farm nestled in the rolling hills of southern Minnesota.  She is known for her ability to help each student create a rug that they love, and for her very large supply of textured wool and rug designs.

You can see her designs and a sampling of her wool at

Her class will be an open class so that the students may choose any pattern by any designer.

 You will need to bring to class a sturdy 14” hoop, scissors and pen & paper.
