These pieces were hooked or needle punched by me, Sally Van Nuys, Ohio fiber artist. Pieces are one-of-a-kind. Many magazine models are offered here, as well; they were created for publications and are now offered for sale to you. Hooked pieces are created by hand using 100% wool on linen. Needle punched pieces are worked on premium weavers cloth with either wool or cotton threads. Just one of each available. The time to buy a piece you love is when you see it.
I have many more to offer, so check back to see more as I get them loaded here.
