My wife Vivian and I, have been married 56 years and Live in Lakin, Kansas. We’ve raised two sons and two daughters who have given us several grandchildren and great grandchildren. The site rughooking101.com came up for sale in 2006. I think the previous owners called us after we had been looking at the site. We visited and came to an agreement and we purchased the business. To begin with we sold the frames and stands which I build out of Red Oak and my wife Vivian makes up the kits that we have for sale. I enjoy making the frames and stands while Vivian puts the kits together and hooks the small rugs and frames them for wall hangers. Some have told us they also use them for candle mats. We enjoy making the products and we often visit with our customers through email.
