The "Brief History" of rug hooking (about 3 paragraphs ;-) that appeared in this issue noted that when and where the art began remains debatable. What is known is that, by the 1940s, it had become a well-established hobby in the United States and Canada and that it has "evolved into a popular means of personal expression as well as a practical pastime." And even better: "Hand-hooked rugs can be found on the walls of art galleries from New York City and Washington, D.C., to Tokyo and London, as well as in museums, office buildings, libraries, and cultural centers across North America."  How did this happen? Well, because of the amazing work done by contemporary rug hookers! Like these:
