A History of Rug Hooking

  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.

   Instructor Janet Williams has been rug hooking for over 40 years. She is a certified McGown Rug Hooking Teacher and has taught rug hooking at various adult schools and in her studio. She has been published in “Rug Hooking Magazine” and the “Pearl McGown Newsletter” as well as having her work included in books.
