Fabric was an important, and often times scarce, commodity in days gone by. Rug hooking is akin to quilting in that it utilized scraps unsuitable for clothing to produce rugs that warmed the floors of early homes. Unlike latch hook, primitive rug hooking uses strips of fabric drawn-up through a base layer to produce a nap. In this half day class, students will learn the basic technique and complete a small pattern in class to take home.
This is a beginning class. No previous experience is necessary.
