"Preserving the history of North America's folk art" - The Hooked Rug Museum of North America.
About HOOKED RUG MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA SOCIETY
Rug hooking is North America's original folk art. Once a craft developed to cover the drafty floors of the primitive homes of our settlers, it is now a fine art practised by talented and skilled artisans. Once made with strips of used material, the very first of our re-cycling, modern rug hooking is described as painting with wool.
Our purpose is to preserve the tradition of rug hooking, celebrate and promote the artform.
We invite your support and your help in building the Museum.
