Art holds a very special place in my heart since early childhood. I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. Painted Mermaid Designs has evolved from my studio in Maine where I taught classes, sold my wool and patterns. I am now living in California and sell my rug hooking patterns on Etsy. I also offer custom design services to help you create your own rug. Kits are available upon request.
All my rug hooking patterns are hand-drawn on fine or primitive linen with a 4" selvage surrounding the design for ease of frame use. I make sure the pattern border is drawn on the straight of the grain ensuring a precise finish! Edges are serged to prevent fraying. A color photo is enclosed for your reference.
I love to dye wool and I can put together a kit for you if requested. Price of kits will vary depending on pattern.
