Rug Hooking is a craft that began out of necessity (coverings for cold floors) in a time when the United States was a fledgling county and only the most wealthy could afford to have rugs for their homes brought over by ship from England. Using burlap flour sacks as the backing and scraps of worn clothes as the filler, these early Americans covered their floors and other surfaces with beautiful rug. It's a simple craft -- pulling a fabric strip up through a backing fabric into a loop (many many times) until the backing fabric is completely covered. In this class I will teach you how to pull up loops and turn them into a small mat that you can use as a wall hanging, part of a pillow, or a hot pad for hot pans. A selection of fabric, rug hooks, a selection of patterns, and a small rug hooking frame will be provided for your use during the class.
