In recent decades, rug hookers have been exploring new materials and new techniques. This experimentation (combined with knowledge and respect for the past) has allowed rug hooking to evolve and grow into an exciting and creative form of art. We are excited to be a part of this fun and social craft. We are fairly new to rug hooking, at The Woolery, and look forward to offering more quality products and support.
