Traditional hooked rugs were born out of necessity to keep drafty cabins warm. Our very ingenious ancestors took the materials at hand — boot hooks, worn clothing, and burlap from feed sacks – and hooked rugs to place on their floors for comfort. Nothing went to waste.
With Linda’s guidance, you will learn all the basics on how to start, hook, and finish a small mat. You will begin a journey that may become a lifelong adventure.
