Learn more about the rich history of rug hooking in addition to its current trends by picking up this issue of Rug Hooking magazine. If you are looking to read up on rug hooking stories from the past, the articles on fishermen's wives from the 1920s and folklife rugs will fill you in on how people have interacted with this craft for decades. You can also find out more about the ways that people use their art to interact with their communities and families: Weezie Huntington celebrated survival after Hurricane Sandy with her commemorative rug and Norma Press reproduced her grandchildren's drawings in wool form to connect with her loved ones. There is even an exclusive pattern available that will walk you through turning the same charming cottage pattern into a rug, pillow, or needle-punched piece.
