Judith Stephens and Josephine (Jo) Franco
Rug Hooking Teachers & Fibre Artists, Board Members of the Australian Rugmakers Guild and members of The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers
Judith and I have traveled extensively in the USA, Canada, UK and Australia to meet other rug hookers and research different rughooking techniques.
We have attended rughooking Conferences and workshops in the USA, UK and Canada and together were the Convener and Event Manager for the Triennial Conference of The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers (TIGHR) held in Strathalbyn, South Australia, October 2012.
We are textile artists, experienced and accredited teachers of traditional rug making techniques, and designers of “Raggedyjays” rug hooking patterns.
