On Thursday May 19th the Knit Cafe will be offering a Rug Hooking Class!! The image above shows off a cute peacock with mohair plumage made by the talented Maurie Todd who teaches the class.
Easy to do, rug hooking is great for getting rid of all the scrappy bits and pieces that seem to fill up ones drawers, or baskets or for some of you (yikes!) closets. I love the idea of making your own rug that squishes under your feet, but there is more to rug hooking then rugs. Tea cozies, trivets, wall hangings, coasters, picture frames, are other possible applications.
My fantasy rug is this one. A Boucherouite Rug made in Morocco, a good inspiration for a rug of my own. The Rug Hooking Class is on May 19th (the class date has been changed and this is the up to date info) from 6:30-9pm. It costs $30 with a materials fee of $10.50 covering hook, hoop and fabric backing. To register for the class call us 416 533 5648
