Wool Applique

During September, Hazel Kopishke of Washington, Maine, is exhibiting handcrafted wool appliqué items. All of the wall hangings, table runners, and pillows have an autumn theme, and some are for sale.

Hazel began working with wool after inheriting her mother’s wool stash from her rug braiding days.  After taking one braiding lesson, she now carries on the tradition of creating hand braided rugs for family and friends.  Combining wool and cotton in her wall hangings has become another passion.  Working from patterns or making her own creations keeps Hazel occupied. Hazel, a retired teacher, loves the handwork involved with the wool appliqué process.
