Featured Rugs from International Rug Hooking Day

Featured Rugs from International Rug Hooking Day

International Rug Hooking Day lands on December 4 each year, and last month, Rug Hooking Magazine decided to celebrate with all of our readers! We hosted a Facebook event to spread the word about rug hooking and to allow readers to share their current rug hooking project. We were shocked to see so many incredible rugs!

To continue the celebration, we've decided to feature some of our favorite reader-submitted rugs. Some of the rugs are completed and others are in-progress. We simply wanted to see what you're working on or what you've recently finished.

PLUS: Rug hooking is more fun when you do it with a group of friends. We've included a few of the rug hooking groups that participated in International Rug Hooking Day 2017. Check them out! Perhaps you'll find a group of rug hookers that meet near where you live. 

Happy hooking!

I have an updated picture for my hooked cushion but the file is too big. Also, I am not the designer. It is Christine Little from Encompassing designs.
