GoingGray specializes in whimsical
hooked rug designs. We can also provide you with great works in

was formed by two sisters, Martha (Gray) Reeder and Lisbeth (Gray)
Quebe, in recognition of their maiden name and the natural state of
their hair color. Martha, a skilled rug hooker, conceives and carries out the patterns with a
great eye for color and rhythm. Liz, a reformed marketer now
turning to art, does the drawing and creates our catalog and web
page. Jerry (brother-in-law or husband, depending on
which sister) joined the enterprise with his wood craftsmanship
and his penchant for hanging out with hookers.
|We continue to provide you with rugs that are
just a bit different. More detail than primitives, but with all
the sense of whimsy they provide. Less detail than traditional,
but still well-drawn and defined.
We can provide our patterns just as
drawn, or we can make changes (customization charges apply) that make a rug uniquely yours.
We can also design a custom rug
that depicts a favorite scene, a memory, a milestone, or a
little travelogue through life. Just tell us your story and we'll help
you capture it in wool.
