Somewhat close to the now defunct post office of Ruckman, WV a 100 year old buckwheat processing mill was located on 29 acres of farmland purchased by Susan Feller and Jim Lilly in 1994. After 12 years, Jim had built a log home, Susan the gardens and both networked into the Hampshire County community settling in full-time and opening their studio in 2006. The rughooking business Ruckman Mill Farm was more than a dream.
Susan Feller Designs has developed rughooking patterns since 1994, the Products pages will be updated as new designs and supplies are available. Workshops are geared toward exploring design whether historical Frakturs; basic Elements and Principles; or Manipulating Fibers. Participants respond that this approach broadens their confidence and encourages individual creativity. Visit the Events pages for details on upcoming workshops.
