Michele Mueller

Instructor of Visual Arts, Interlochen College of Creative Arts 

Michele Mueller has always been interested in needle art. Punch needle rug hooking is by far her favorite. In 2011, Michele traveled to Vermont to learn everything about this rug hooking method from Amy Oxford and became a certified Oxford Punch Needle Rug Hooking instructor. Since then Michele has been teaching others punch needle, designing patterns and has been hand dyeing the rug yarn. Michele’s work can be seen at her Elk Rapids studio, the Wild Hare Rug Studio.
