Primitive Rug Hooking
Saturday, September 26, 2009 10 am-3:30 pm
Learn how to make hand-hooked rugs using the same techniques as in the 1850s — by pulling loops of wool fabric through a woven base fabric with a wooden-handled rug hook. Once you know the steps, you can create your own sophisticated designs using high quality, recycled fiber. This is not the latch-hook project with fuzzy puppies that you might remember from your childhood!
