Thanks for coming to my new (old ) home. When I started my business back in 2001, my business name was Baskets of Wool Studio. When we decided to move to North Carolina in 2011, I was planning on opening a Rug Hooking Studio that was outside of my home, but that never happened. During this time, my website (domain name Baskets of Wool) was hosted by a company in Canada that went belly up and did not notify me that my domain was up for renewal (which they had always done for me). Unfortunately, my domain name got purchased and put up for sale for a crazy amount, Since I was not sure what our future held, I chose not to purchase it, which I couldn't afford anyway. Long story short, I started doing a few other items that weren't rug hooking related and thought maybe that was the direction I would take my small business, so I went with a new name Primitive Junky.  My passion for rug hooking kept pulling me back, so it just felt right to come back home to Baskets of Wool, where it all began! Thank you for following me along my journey!
