What is traditional rug hooking?

Rug hooking is an art and a craft; it has been around since the time of the early settlers.  Rug hooking involves making a loop by pulling up a strip of yarn or fabric through a backing of burlap or linen.  Beautiful rugs, mats, wall hangings, pictures, bags, pillows and table runners can be made to decorate your home. 

We take all major credit cards.
