“Star Rug” was one of the first pieces I hooked for the Saskatchewan Crafts Council in 2012. It was hooked at various venues across Saskatchewan and used to demonstrate rug hooking to people at craft fairs and shows.
“Star Rug” is hooked with silk and wool on primitive linen. The design consists of a series of stars, freehanded onto backing and floating in six inch squares. The entire piece is a take off of the traditional hit and miss rug, with both stars and their respective six inch backgrounds being hooked in deep, rich vibrant colours.
“Star Rug” was accepted into the travelling exhibit, “Dimensions“, of the Saskatchewan Crafts Council in 2013. It toured across Canada before coming home to rest.
I have always had a soft spot for “Star Rug”, as it was my first piece to tour extensively. I’ve kept the price high over the years to reflect the quality of material, the work and the history of the piece. However, now I am ready to let it go. The $500 CAD price tag represents a more than 30% price reduction.
“Star Rug” is 28.5” x 17 inches. It comes with a museum quality hanging system of a finished oak board and hook and loop tape attached to the back of the rug and the board. All you need are two screws to hold the board to your wall! “Star Rug” also comes with an artist’s Certificate of Authenticity and care instructions.

Shipping in the the southern part of Canada is free. I’m afraid I have to charge extra for remote places, the USA and international.
