What is rug hooking?
Rug hooking is the technique of taking strips of wool and pulling them through a woven base, creating a beautiful pattern. Rug hooking is one of America’s oldest folk arts and is a very easy concept to learn. Although easy, most rug hookers are continually learning new concepts and techniques.

Cindi Gay, rug hooking artist and teacher
I was rug hooking for about a month when I first discovered classes at Sauder Village. I was already in love with rug hooking and I was excited to take it to the next level. My fist teacher was Julie Marie Smith, she helped me gain the experience of rug hooking and take me to where I am today. One thing I’ve learned was how much impact a teacher or group can help improve a person’s rug hooking skills.
I live in Pemberville, OH near the Ohio Turnpike and I-75. Call to make an appointment to stop by if you are traveling in the area.
This is a picture of me with Gladys, Sue Ellen Fox’s English bulldog. She was snuggling down into my bag of scraps – one of her favorite pastimes when rug hookers are around.
