Molly Colegrove: I have been rug hooking since 1992, but have been creating with fiber and beads since as far back as I can remember.  For me, all forms of fiber art are equally fascinating, and I love to combine them.    I have a degree in Studio Art, but my fiber art work has been largely self-taught.  My work has been included in several exhibits including:  Out of the Loop:  Innovations in Hooking”, Brookfield Craft Center, Brookfield Ct. Invitational Show,  “Pushing the Limits:  New Concepts in Rug Hooking”, Newtown Hooked Rug Show, Newtown, Ct. Juried Show,  “Icons of America” American Folk Art Museum, New York, New York, Juried Contest,  “Beadwork IV:  The Beaded Figure”  Juried Traveling Exhibit, traveled throughout the United States at many venues including Museum of Art and Design in New York, New York,   “Beadwork III:  The Beaded Cloth”  Juried Traveling Exhibit , Traveled throughout the United States to many venues,  “Quilt=Art=Quilts”  Juried Exhibit at the Schweinfurth Museum in Skaneateles, NY.  I have also had the honor of being included in several books and magazines.
