Rug Hooking Magazine Releases New Book from Deanne Fitzpatrick

July 26 , 2016

Northbrook, IL – Rug Hooking Magazine has officially released Rug Hooking with Deanne Fitzpatrick, written by Deanne herself, and drawing from her 25-year background as writer, teacher, and rug hooker. This book can be purchased through Rug Hooking Magazine.

Rug Hooking with Deanne Fitzpatrick takes readers through Deanne’s earliest work and its evolution through different styles, subjects, and lessons, to where it is today.  Including full articles written during her 20 years at Rug Hooking Magazine, the book also features how-to instructions from Deanne’s years of experience, insight into her creative process, and her analysis of rug hooking’s changes over the past decades. She includes over 40 of the rugs she has worked on throughout her lifetime, tracing her career and the history of the art form she loves. She translates her experiences into making personal designs and shows readers how to do the same, coaching them through the process of designing custom pieces from inner creativity.

Deanne writes in her introduction that “Writing has been a big part of my rug-hooking life. Through it, I learned about my own process, and writing enables me to examine it and push it a little further. This book is a record of my work: What I learned and what I tried to teach through the pages of the magazine.”

This will be Deanne’s seventh book. Her art has been displayed in numerous art galleries, including the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Canadian Museum of Civilization. She continues to rug hook in her studio in Amherst, Nova Scotia, drawing eager students and visitors from Rug Hooking Magazine’s global community. She also runs a blog with thousands of online viewers each year.
