“Rug hooking patterns, dyed wool spots, swatches and yardages.”
New Earth Designs is a pattern business for traditional rug hooking. It was started over 24 years ago by Anne Ashworth, sold to Jeanette and Maureen Rugar of New York, and since 1992 has been owned by me, Jeanne Benjamin.
The over 300 patterns in the catalogue are of all different design types, from gorgeous orientals to pictorials, folk art and primitive. Most of the designs are silk screened for clear dark lines, and they are printed on the backing as straight as possible, with serged edges. Patterns are available on your choice of backing, either monks cloth, rug warp, or linen. If a photo is available, the pattern will come to you with it!
