Cheryl Bollenbach

Rug Hooking has been Cheryl’s fiber passion since 2005. She particularly enjoys teaching figurative gesture, portraits, animals, landscapes, florals, geometrics, sculpted wool in a figural form, and still life subject matter in all cuts from #3 to hand-torn. She happily creates beautiful hand dyed wool, silk, velvet and nylon for her students.  Cheryl is a great communicator, as evidenced by her work as Editor of The ATHA Newsletter for the last 5 years.  Her web site can be accessed via the web at 




Sharon A. Smith 

It’s obvious, when viewing Sharon’s work, that she has a passion for celebrating vibrant cultures from around the world with both great design and a palate of richly colored wool! Her popular rug pattern line, found at her Internet Website “Off The Hook Wool Rugs,” 

features over 60 of her very original designs.  Should you want something whimsical, floral, exotic, architectural, pictorial or story book, Sharon is the teacher for you. Sharon was the featured guest artist at the 2018 Sauder Village Rug Retreat.    




Diane Stoffel

Diane Stoffel, of Brewster, MA, has been a favorite teacher at CPRC for many year.  She’s known for generating great enthusiasm and energy in her classes.  Also known as a wide cut specialist, she is equally at home with fine cuts.  Students who need help with their designs or dyeing will find her indispensable. 




Gene Shepherd

Known for his ability to communicate technical information and rug hooking “short cuts” in simple terms, ("The Rug Hooker's Bible," "Prodded Hooking for a Three Dimensional Effect" and dozens of instructional DVDs)  students most frequently take Gene's classes as a means of honing their basic technique while working on cuts 6 -12.  If you are interested in geometrics, "fancy wide cut" or designs that beg for specialty dyed wool that can be either hooked or prodded into 3-D shapes, then this is the class to take.


Cambria Pines Rug Camp is an “Open Class” camp, meaning that students can work on any commercial or original pattern they want with their teacher.
