What is Rug Hooking? How did it begin? What are the various traditions? We will look at rug hooking history in Nova Scotia (Cheticamp, Grenfell), Maine (Waldoboro) and New England. Famous rug collectors and designers such as William Kent, Pearl McGown, Patty Yoder, Molly Nye Tobey, Magdalena Briner Eby and James & Mercedes Hutchinson will be discussed. New trends in modern rug hooking will finish off the course. “Hooked Rug Treasury” by Jesse Turbayne, Schiffer Press, 1997, is a good resource for background information.
