Rug Hooking

The Simple Art of pulling loops of cut wool, material, nylons, or yarn through a backing material to create rugs for the floor, coverings for furniture, pictures for the wall, gifts of fashion, and items for our homes. There are many different styles and genres of Rug Hooking, but it started in the East Coast of Canada, when women created rugs for their floors out of necessity.  They used whatever they had to create beautiful art for their floors. Often times this consisted of burlap sacks, old rags and clothes. Today Rug Hooking is a Fibre Art that is enjoyed by many and has given us beautiful art by Artists such as Rachelle LeBlanc, Deanne Fitzpatrick, Diane Cox, and Charlene Fiander.
