THE INSTRUCTOR:

Krista Taylor’s passion for creating has led her onto a wonderful path of rug hooking. She stumbled upon it in the summer of 2019 and was instantly “hooked”! This craft has taught her a lot about herself. In her quest for hooking supplies, Krista discovered a lack of local options. This realization sparked the birth of Get Hooked Studio!

Krista made the decision to offer high-quality wools and fibers, along with a variety of textures catering to every style of rug hooking. Her wool is sourced from Dorr Mills, and all yarns come from Canadian suppliers. Her mission is to share the joy of rug hooking with as many people as possible, hoping to add a little happiness to their lives.
