Wishful thinking! This photo is taken in Prince Edward Island along the Confederation Trail outside Montague. Oh how I wish it was summer and I was there! Some day I will hook this tree. In the meantime…
I have uploaded another video to YouTube called “How to Rug Hook” . It is very rough as it was done by myself and I wanted to try voiceover. Please forgive the quality. I hope it makes up for it on the technical explanations of rug hooking.
The best way to learn to rug hook is to take a class. Having said that I recognize some people are living places where that is not possible. I hope this video helps you.
You can hook anything, not just wool fabric strips. You can hand cut old clothing and hook it through a backing. Or, if the backing is fine, you can hook yarn through it. Anything is fair game! You can even combine them as many rug hooking artists do, including Deanne Fitzpatrick .
