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.

Mail and internet orders welcome - we ship across Canada
