Caroline first learned to hook at the local library; she was taught to pull loops but knew there was more to learn. Caroline started searching for teachers and soon was organizing classes to learn how to dye wool. Once she started hooking she never looked back. She has taught at Association of Traditional Hooking Artists Biennial, and Rug Hooking Retreats at Sauder Village.
Caroline and her husband Ron live in a hand hewed log home along with their beloved beagles Otis and Maple. Ron has lovingly converted their attic into a beautiful studio, Eagles Nest.
