Rug Hooking Workshop

Look at these cute fellows.  They’re by artist Ann Willey and they are rug hooked.

It just goes to show, you can do so much with this craft.

I think many of us hold a dear place in our hearts for craft-work that was developed from thrift.  Rug hooking like quilting, seems to have been invented to make the most out of little resources.  The results of necessity to save and scrounge is anything but utilitarian.  The results are full of colour and joy, invested with visual and tactile memory. The results are rugs and bedspreads and so much more.

    Please remove my name from your e-mail list. I have a new computer and for some unfathomable reason, I can’t see any of your beautiful photos! Besides, I don’t live in Ontario and have been to Toronto only a couple of times, but never made it to your shop…

    Keep on knitting!
