Click on a link to the right to see select photos of some finished pieces.
The completed rugs shown in these photos are not for sale, but are shown to help you see what they could look like completed. You may have different colour choices, of course.
There are many more patterns in the catalogue, but it is not yet possible to show them all here. Catalogues may be ordered by clicking here.
Nearly all of the patterns are silk screened on to the backing of your choice. This provides a clear, dark line. You can choose either Monk’s Cloth (cotton), Rug Warp (heavier cotton) or Linen. A guide is below to help you choose which is best. The prices are shown for monk’s cloth and linen…rug warp prices fall somewhere in between. A colour photo comes with each pattern (if available).
Patterns are printed as straight as possible to the weave of the backing. Pattern returns (in original condition) may be done within 14 days of purchase. You may also exchange your purchased pattern for the same pattern on a different backing.
All designs are copyrighted by New Earth Designs and Lib Callaway and may not be reproduced in any form or means without express written permission from Jeanne Benjamin. This is per the U.S. copyright office.
All prices are subject to change without notice. A 6.25% Mass sales tax will be added to Mass residents. Patterns that are ordered will be sent with an invoice that includes reasonable shipping charges. Payment is due upon receipt of the pattern. Professional discounts are available to certified rug hooking teachers or stores, please inquire.
If you would like to submit a photo of a completed New Earth Designs or Lib Callaway rug; please do, I’d love to see it! Your photo may be selected to be attached to patterns as a visual aid.
• Monks Cloth is great for narrow cut shaded pieces as you can always squeeze another row in. Many enjoy it for wide cuts as well.
• Rug Warp is preferred by many for cuts between 3 and 5. I find it tight going beyond that.
• Linen. The linen I use is wonderful for any cut between 3 and 8.
I haven’t personally tried going wider.
