Rug Hooking Magazine Goes to Rug School

June 21 , 2017

Debra Smith, editor of Rug Hooking magazine (RHM), spent a week in June at Caraway Rug School in Caraway, North Carolina. It was a whirlwind week: meeting rug hookers from far and wide, visiting with friends old and new, networking with teachers and RHM contributors and learning from dawn to dusk. The Caraway Conference Center was filled with hooking and dyeing, pattern preparation and design, tips and techniques for better rugs and wonderful inspiration. Rug hooking is alive and well and growing in popularity. Be sure to check it out sometime and be amazed at the vibrant wool art being produced by a wide range of textile artists.

Rug Hooking magazine provides high-quality information, how-to instruction and innovative patterns for a thriving fiber arts community. Published five times per year, the magazine can be accessed through a subscription or purchased in some book and craft stores. Subscribe here to access one or two years of hooked happiness. Rug Hooking magazine has additional ways to connect rug hookers with one another, particularly through the free email newsletter, Rug Beat. The newsletter includes patterns, tutorials and event news, so sign up by clicking here. For those who love to read as well as hook, RHM also has something for you: the book club. Rug Hooking publishes four books per year on topics such as dyeing (from Gene Shepherd himself) and punch needle rugs. Join the club by signing up for a Book Club membership and you will even be able to reserve your copy of the annual “Celebration” book.
