Bio: Bev has been hooking since 1995 when she first saw a demonstration at the Indiana State Fair and fell in love with rug hooking. She began hooking on her own by reading every article she could find on rug hooking and soon learned she needed instruction. Her first teacher was Margo White from Indiana and that led to other instructors such as Barbara Carroll, Pris Buttler, Sally Kallin, Kris Miller, Susan Feller, Eric Sandberg and many other wonderful teachers through the years.

 She opened her shop, Whispering Pines Designs Rug Hooking Studio, in 2000 after retiring from General Motors. Since that time, she has demonstrated rug hooking at the Indiana State Fair, judged many competitions and fairs, including the Kentucky State Fair textiles in rug hooking category, and is the founder of The Woolkeepers Hook-In in Danville, Indiana. This hook-in is still going strong after 16 years and is a highly-attended event the weekend after Labor Day in Danville.
