With this issue, Rug Hooking begins its 25th Anniversary. We continue to endeavor to give our readers all of the best in the world of rug hooking. I’ve been around for four of those 25 years, and from where I sit, I know that there is still a lot ahead for rug hooking and Rug Hooking magazine. In this issue we have lots of great stories, a wonderful summer pattern from Susan Feller, and our Celebration XXII Readers’ Choice winners.There is something for everyone.
Don’t forget, we now offer you an opportunity to go back in time to the days before Rug Hooking magazine. We have digitized the first year of Joan Moshimer’s The Rug Hooker: News & Views and we are offering the issues for sale as PDF downloads. They’re chock-full of Joan’s wonderful rug hooking patterns, hooking instructions, dye recipes, stories, old advertisements, and even a recipe or two for your dinner table. Joan’s charming black and white illustrations and thoughtful editorials are appealing and nostalgic. Join us in a trip down memory lane, a trip to our roots.
