MEET THE ARTIST AND OWNER
Elizabeth Miller is the owner and artisan at Parris House Wool Works in Paris Hill, Maine. It is a center for all things rug hooking, fiber art, crafting, and heritage skills.Her mission is to perpetuate artisanship into the next century through teaching, public outreach, and an online shop supplying rug hookers all over North America.
She has taught workshops at the Squam Art Workshops, the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, the Beekman 1802 Mercantile, other national venues, and in her Maine studio.
Her work has appeared in the Lines, Color, and Forest issues of Making Magazine, and the Holiday 2017 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine. She is the author of Heritage Skills for Contemporary Life: Seasons at the Parris House, published by Down East Press, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield, that will be released in 2021.
Elizabeth designed, color planned, and sample hooked these kits exclusively for the Darn Good Yarn community. They are expertly assembled and packed by Heather Daggett, her Retail & Production Manager. Rug hooking employs a very simple technique that yields a quick learning curve and these kits are a perfect beginning in the art.
Elizabeth enjoys organic gardening, chicken keeping, beekeeping, and soap-making at her 200 year old historic Maine homestead, the Parris House, as well as hiking and the outdoors in her beloved New England. Students will be invited to farm-stay educational retreats at the Parris House beginning in 2021.
