  RUG Hooking

Rug hooking has a long history in Canada. Pioneers recycled the fabric from old clothes, cut them into strips and hooked them into burlap sacks to create rugs to keep them warm during the winter.

Today, rug hooking is a creative handicraft art that uses woollen and speciality fabrics that are cut into strips with a special machine and stitched into wall hangings, cushions and floor mats.

Getting started in rug hooking is easy and requires only a few tools such as: hoop, fabric hooks, scissors, burlap (or other fabric) and fabric. 

During 2022-2023 we organized the following:  

  • Rug Hooking Spring Challenge
  • Punch Needle Rug Hooking Demo/Workshop 

To discover more about this discipline, visit us in person!   You are welcome to attend any guild meeting but the Wednesday Group focuses on Rug Hooking and Needlework.
