Wheaten Woolens

Our Welcoming Committee Murphy and Abby

Wheaten Woolens is a warm cozy studio that specializes in the Folk Art of Primitive Rug Hooking. It is in a historic, 1860 limestone barn, in Davenport, Iowa. The original stone farm-house has also been restored and decorated in primitive antiques by the owners who have lived there for 30 years.

The barn is well stocked with textured wools, patterns and rug hooking supplies to create unique, one of a kind hooked rugs.

The studio offers classes for those interested in learning or furthering their knowledge in the art of hooking primitive rugs.


Check Monthly Hooking Days for upcoming classes and hours. I am also available evenings and weekends for appointments. I live on the property and can easily meet your needs.

Directions: The studio is close to I-80. Take the 280 exit and get off at Locust Street. I am 6 blocks from the Putnam Museum and I-Max Theater. The Figge Art Museum and river boat gambling are 10 minutes away in downtown Davenport.

    I noticed your beautiful wool pin. Do you sell the pattern for it? I like it better than any I have seen. I have a group of ladies that meet at my house and I would love to surprise each of them with a pin (after the holiday gift :-)….) Thank you so much. By the way, my husband is now retired military. We were stationed at Rock Island Arsenal many years ago and we lived in Bettendorf area. Thank you for pattern info/or how I can purchase the pattern.

    I loved your beautiful rugs at the airport exhibit, Beth! I actually worked on my rug this afternoon, and I sent one of your brochures to Polly.
